GENERAL MEETING OCTOBER 4, 2021: Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, LSCRTA has been holding the Executive Board Meetings outside at Centennial Park in Peru, IL. A general membership meeting was held on Monday, October 4, 2021 at Danny Carey Park in Utica, IL. There were three speakers who informed all members on three topics. Krissy Darm from the ROE shared how the teacher license can be updated and about the need for substitutes in LaSalle County. She told us how we could attend the LaSalle County Workshop which is virtual and at no cost to retirees. (See links below for Subbing, attending the LaSalle County Workshop, and more .) Retired sheriff, Tom Templeton, spoke about all the scams that are going around and what to do about it. The last speaker was JoEllen Fiorentini who gave tips on fall gardening. Coffee, water, and donuts were donated by the ROE, and door prizes were also a pleasant addition.
