The Chilliwack RTA gathers for an average of 6 meetings throughout the school year, and we always start with the traditional “To Hell with the Bell” breakfast. This year we had a variety of speakers, and the most memorable luncheon was when our speaker was Gerry Tiede, of the BC Teachers’ Pension Board. If you have not invited Gerry to one of your meetings, you are missing out!
At our meetings, we encourage members to purchase 50/50 tickets, and the monies go to fund the three $500 scholarships that we give to deserving students that are heading to university to become teachers.
The CRTA meets approximately six times per year, and we visit different food establishments throughtout the Chilliwack area. At our annual Christmas dinner, we always go to a local Chinese restaurant where they serve a traditional English Christmas Turkey Dinner, their only non Chinese meal throughout the year!
The CRTA has an excellent relationship with the the local CTA. Our executive meets at their office once a month and we have free use of all their facilities.
Thanks to everyone, locally and provincially for all your have work on our behalf!
Dale Warr, President
