Branch Report 2015

With no president or vice-president this year the Powell River Retired Teachers’ Association has been limited in its activities.  Our four social events continued, all with good attendance, beginning with the traditional To Hell With the Bells luncheon held the first day of school and ending with our AGM in June.  No workshops were provided and next to no new political or volunteer activities organized.   Fortunately at our AGM a new PRRTA president along with a few new directors were elected.  This will hopefully mean our branch will have more life to it in the upcoming year.
Respectfully Submitted,
Bruce Anderson, Past President

Branch Report 2014

Our ‘To Hell With the Bells’ lunch was held at Myrtle Point Golf Course clubhouse on the first day of school in September.  Attendance was excellent.  New retirees were welcomed to the gathering and were provided with a complementary lunch.Throughout the year the PRRTA held three luncheons on its own.  In addition, our association continued its partnership with the Powell River Seniors Centre to provide members of both organizations with a number of workshops.  Prior to presenting these workshops a soup and sandwich lunch was served at a cost of $ 5.00 per person.  A few of the more popular workshops were Stroke and Osteoporosis.  Volunteerism continues to be strong among the membership.  Members were central to the success of this year’s 30th anniversary of the Kathaumixw International Choral Festival.  They are also pivotal to the ongoing success of Lang Bay Native Plant Gardens, On the Road with Children Activity bus, Powell River Pacific Salmon Foundation, Seafair, Powell River Hospital Foundation, Historic Townsite Society and Inclusion Powell River to name just a few.  Retirement for our members is a means by which to open up new opportunities to give back to our community.On June 13 the PRRTA held its Annual General Meeting at the Granada Restaurant.  On a positive note the meal provided was excellent and attendance was good.  On the negative side, for the first time a number of executive positions for next year were left vacant.During the month of June our members donated significant amounts of volunteer time to do picket duty on BCTF picket lines.Several of us attended the PRDTA retirement party that took place June 18.  Despite all the bad news around bargaining, the party was upbeat and energetic; a fitting celebration for our new retirees.

Bruce Anderson, President
