LITTLETON, Maine — The Southern Aroostook Agricultural Museum in Littleton will host the first meeting of the Aroostook Retired Educators Association (AREA) on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.
Registration will be at 11:00 am and a turkey dinner complete with homemade pies will be served at noon. The cost of the meal is $15.
The program will feature guest speaker Dr. Norma Desjardins of St. Apollonia Dental Clinic.
Following the business meeting, members will observe the Remembrance Service.
Once again AREA will continue to collect canned goods and nonperishable items to be distributed to local food pantries. The group will also participate in this year’s annual “Day of Caring” to be held in September. Each county affiliate plans a special project to benefit the students in that county.
This year, AREA continues the “Bulging Backpack” project, which involves filling backpacks with school supplies and donating them to an area school. One school from the central region of Aroostook County will receive this year’s project. Members may bring donations for both projects to the summer meetings.
Membership dues are $7 and all retired educators are encouraged to join. Stay connected with students, share valuable information, renew friendships, and be supportive of current educators.
