The guest speaker was Tamla Cole from State Teachers Retirement System. She gave an informative report of the financial status of STRS as well as an update on the health care plans.

The HCRTA conducts a community service project for each meeting and the project this time is to provide funding for foster children in the area so they can have Christmas gifts. All retired educators and the general public are encouraged to donate to this project. Donations should be sent to HCRTA Treasurer Doris Pulse, 11740 SR 753, Greenfield, Ohio 45123.
