Our Packemin HS retired teacher luncheon took place on Friday. We welcomed two new members.
It is so great to sit and talk to so many wonderful people we only got to know if our 40 minute lunch periods happened to coincide. It was great to be able to talk without the distraction of a pile of papers being marked. It was great to be able to stay as long as we wanted, to know the restroom had toilet paper that rolled, soap and paper towels.
Our next meeting is November 15. Every retired female Packemin teacher is invited to join us. E-mail me and I will put you on the list. Our membership grows every month. Not everyone makes every meeting (lots of other activities to partake in when you don't have to work) so we are going to try to alternate days of week this year.
(We also accept honorary Packemin retirees, that is, teachers from other schools.)
