65th Anniversary Celebration
Established February 15th, 1954 and Celebrating 65 Years in 2019
The Vigo County Retired Teachers Association celebrated its 65th anniversary with a special luncheon, guest speakers, and memories from our beginning. Founded just four short years after the Indiana Retired Teachers Association was founded, our members look back over the past 65 years with pride.
Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett helped launch the celebration with a special citywide proclamation.
Following a wonderful luncheon meal and a special anniversary cake to celebrate the occasion, IRTA Executive Director Tom Mellish conveyed his best wishes along with celebratory wishes from IRTA President Jane Boltinghouse. Lynn Cox, IRTA Area 4 Director, gave a short message of congratulations along with her well wishes for the organization.
VCRTA honored its past Presidents with a roll call of names and dates of service since the inception of the association. Those living past Presidents in attendance were presented with a celebratory certificate. The association also honored its currently serving officers and committee chairpersons.
President Millie Vaughn expressed her appreciation to everyone who helped develop VCRTA’s inaugural newsletter “The Connection” and encouraged everyone to enjoy the publication.
