Retired educators share reports
Special to The Herald
The Yazoo County Retired Education Personnel Association met Feb. 28 in the D.D. Waiver Building at the Warren-Yazoo Mental Health Complex.
The meeting was called to order by Pres. Barbara Moore. The devotional was given by Blondell Fikes, who spoke on how one can overcome sorrow. Gala Starling led the group in singing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.” The pledge of allegiance was recited.
The minutes were read and approved. Catherine Brent gave the treasurer’s report in the absence of Clementine Davis. She reported that the County Teachers’ Association, which does not meet anymore, donated their balance to the retired teachers. Some of the county’s members are now retired members.
