ARTC’s spring luncheon, after a two-year covid hiatus, happened! There were about 140 people in attendance who enjoyed a delicious lunch, socialized, participated in a raffle being held for the Glenn Moon Scholarship, listened to our wonderful scholarship recipients, as well as heard from our guest speakers, Kisha Hull and Karla Miller from the Agency on Aging. Kisha Hull spoke about SMP(Senior Medicare Patrol) and Karla Miller about the Trusted Ride Chaperone Program.
Our annual spring luncheon was a huge success. To see or download photos from this event click here. The event was held at the beautiful Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville. Our guest speaker was State Treasurer Shawn T. Wooden. Treasurer Wooden spoke about the state’s plans for teacher pensions. To see the video of Treasurer Wooden’s speech, click here.
Our Fall 2019 luncheon was a huge success (click here to view the photo dropbox). We had a wonderful turnout and were extremely lucky to have Kathleen Holt from the center for Medicare Advocacy as our guest speaker. We will have a video of her Oct speech available soon.
The ARTC had another successful luncheon at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville. President Tom Singleton opened the meeting by approving the new slate officers. We were joined by State Comptroller Kevin Lembo who spoke about the state budget and answered questions from the membership.
The fall luncheon was a huge hit. We were very lucky to have Joe Fields and Darlene Perez as our guest speakers. Joe “fielded” our various health insurance, CIGNA, our new Dental Carrier and drug costs questions. Darlene, who is from the teacher’s Retirement Board, spoke regarding the status of our pension and our health fund. Michael Norman, ARTC-PAC, spoke on the up-coming elections.
