Rush County retired teachers meet

Members and guests of the Rush County Retired Teachers Association met Dec. 5 the Conference Room at Rush Memorial Hospital. Following the welcome by President Bud King, and grace by Ken Brashaber, dinner was enjoyed.

Bud opened the meeting with the Pledge to the Flag, the introduction of Sue Templin, our Area 6 representative, and greetings to our first year retirees, Norma Wendell and Charlie Gratzer.

Following the treasurer’s report and secretary’s minutes, committee reports were given. Sharon Wooley thanked the calling committee, and Shirley Jones reported that volunteer hours need to be reported by Dec. 30. Barb Kendall passed out cards to be signed and sent to those in nursing homes and those having birthdays soon. We were reminded that Dorothy Crawley will be celebrating her 100th birthday on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Bud thanked those who volunteered with the Reality Store at Benjamin Rush Middle School. Volunteers were Rosalie Earnest, Shirley Henshaw, Barb Kendall, Bud King, Connie Schakel, Libby Smith, Sharon Wooley and Dave Young. District representative, Templin, spoke briefly. Sue encouraged us to write letters to our legislators, mentioning that it has been five years since the last Cost of Living Adjustment. She said that e-mails are not effective, and to gain attention to a subject, the legislator must have received at least five letters before considering a subject.

RCRTA member, Ruth Houk was introduced and presented a brief program about Changing Footprints, a shoe charity conceived by Maureen Sheehan Leisure in 2004. In conjunction with Bob Broughton, Indianapolis, this became a joint venture in 2005. Thousands of pairs of shoes have been distributed within the state and sent to many countries overseas. In 2009 the Old Glove Factory, across from the K of C, became the permanent home for the charity. A grant from the Rush Count Community Foundation paid for the installation of a bathroom, and many local individuals and organizations have volunteered to remodel the interior of the historic building.
