The Morrow County Retired Teachers Association began a year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the group’s founding with a luncheon held April 4 at Trinty United Methodist Church.

Golden table centerpieces, created by Kitty Halfhill, featured ‘60’s memorabilia.

Vice president Bonnie Hildebrand introduced author, artist and educator Marilyn Schraff, who told engaging stories of her growing up in the rural Appalachian area of southern Ohio. The multi-talented Schraff also displayed some of her paintings, wood carvings and books.

President Pat Reinhart presided for the business meeting. Her reports included experiencing hybrid learning at the Mount Gilead Middle School in February, and the successful retirement planning seminar on March 15.

Membership chairman Sharon Kincade reported MCRTA currently has 96 members on its roll, of which 61 hold lifetime membership. Bonnie Hildebrand announced a graduating senior from Highland High School will be awarded the MCRTA scholarship at the June 6 meeting where the program will feature the ‘Snuggled in Hope’ project.

The executive board will meet at 10 a.m. April 25 at the Edison UMC.
