Retired teachers should join CRTA

The Nevada County Division of the California Retired Teachers’ Association is participating in California Retired Teachers’ Week through Nov. 15, in recognition of the high level of volunteer service that retired educators provide to their local communities.

Local members of the CRTA contributed 18,420 hours of their time, valued at $257,880, during this past year. Statewide, CRTA members logged nearly 1.8 million hours, valued at about $28 million.

CRTA is California’s largest organization of retired educators. It is in the forefront of promoting legislation to protect and improve educators’ pensions. It is a strong advocate for public education and the improvement of its programs and facilities.

The local division also participates in support of future teachers by raising funds for local scholarships. This past year, they made it possible for two high school graduates to begin working towards their teaching careers.

Retired teachers who live in Nevada County are urged to join the local CRTA group. They will be meeting Monday, Dec. 1, for a holiday luncheon and musical program.

For membership information or luncheon reservations, please call 273 4734.
