The Webster County Retired Teachers and School Personnel Association met Feb. 3 at the Central Bank of Marshfield meeting room. The social time refreshments were provided by hostesses Jackie Scott and Laurabeth Smith.
The meeting was called to order by President Charlotte Biddle, who then introduced the speaker, Jordan Carroll, administer of Webco Manor, our local nursing care facility. Carroll explained there are 70 residents currently cared for in Webco and 116 employees working there. The need for resources and funding was shared by the speaker, as well as the need for volunteers to listen and sit with residents, not just during holidays, but all year round. We were encouraged to put our talents to use as volunteers. We are certainly fortunate to have Webco Manor serve our community.
A business meeting followed the speaker with committee reports and a reminder that Feb. 11 would be the MRTA (Missouri Retired Teacher's Association) Legislative Day in Jefferson City and to contact Brenda Cologna if interested in going with our group.
The next meeting of the association will be Monday, March 2, at 9:30 a.m. at the Central Bank of Marshfield. All retired teachers and school personnel are welcome.
