Members of VCRTA were given a special presentation of holiday music this year. While the association attempts to have musical performances every year to celebrate the holidays, this year’s performance was very special.
Prior to his passing, longtime VCRTA member Mel Gastineau arranged to have the McCullough family perform a selection of holiday music for the association. While bittersweet, the McCullough family gave a wonderful performance.
VCRTA members whom had passed away during 2018 were recognized during the Necrology ceremony. Volunteer hours for 2018 were collected and will be reported to the Indiana Retired Teachers Association and to the association during the February luncheon.
Results of the VCRTA winter service project (Salvation Army Bell Ringing) have not been provided yet but will be reported once received. While the Salvation Army had a local goal of raising $180,000, VCRTA is anxiously hoping to have collected more this year than in 2017.
