The Carroll County Retired Teachers Association met Friday, June 19, at the Carrollton Bible Chapel.
The 23 members who attended enjoyed the family-style dinner prepared by Judy Cunningham and the ladies of the church, followed by the Power Program presented by Amy Miller. Miller explained the state education grants that are funding the program and the three STEM schools of Agriculture, Engineering and Safety.
The program is multi-faceted, encompassing learning opportunities for pre-school to twelfth-grade students and the community at large with its walking trail and CNG (compressed natural gas) fueling station, which is scheduled to open in a few months.
President Earl Ferguson then welcomed new member Paula Puch and conducted the business meeting.
Joyce Ferguson gave the treasurer's report, and the members voted to donate $200 to the Back-To School Extravaganza held in August.
Ferguson and Rose Seck have consented to serve as president and vice president next term and were voted on by the membership.
Committee reports were given by Rose Seck, Darlene Smith and Marilyn Warner.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Carrollton Schools Power Building.
Drinks, sandwiches and table service will be provided by donation, but a potluck salad, snack or dessert will be welcome.
