Opening Thoughts (poem provided by Reba Hadley): The temple the teacher built will last while the ages roll, for that beautiful unseen temple was a child’s immortal soul
VCRTA members enjoyed their August 2017 luncheon of food and fellowship with one another before a wonderful presentation by Marylee Hagen of the Vigo County Historical Center. The program included an update on the progress of the new History Center that is expected to open in 2018 as part of the Vigo County Bicentennial celebration.
VCRTA members participated in their autumn service project, the annual School Supplies drive. The supplies collected this year were donated to Hoosier Prairie Elementary School. Additionally, VCRTA members donated over $180 for the Salvation Army School Supplies fund.
Reminders for paying annual dues and for the upcoming winter service project were given. VCRTA awards from the Representative Assembly meeting were presented.
