ECOEA Holiday Happenings Luncheon

ECOEA members and guests gathered for our annual Holiday Happenings retiree luncheon at the beautiful Pine Tree Barn in Shreve on December 3rd for good food, great conversation and an interesting STRS update from guest Rita Walters, STRS Board member. Did you know that there are 196 STRS recipients that are 100 years old or older? And, there are 125 members that are 99 years old? Our oldest STRS member is 107 years old! Wow! Holiday blessings to them all! Keep up to date with ECOEA with the monthly emailed newsletter. Not receiving the newsletter? Probably because we don’t have a good email address for you.
