Henry Stark retired teachers gather
GENESEO — Sixty of the Henry Stark Counties Retired Teachers responded to the theme of “Build our Future ... Patriotically” for the July meeting at the First Methodist Church in Geneseo. The “church ladies” demonstrated their pie baking skills along with the choices of beef or chicken casserole, green beans, tossed salad, rolls and beverages.
The celebrative mood was set by six new members attending who were greeted by President Gary DeMoss. Anyone who brought a new member received a package of homemade cookies by Lynda DeMoss. The DeMosses provided baked and gift items for the raffle that generated more than $200 to be used for expenses and special projects such as the foundation, political action, legal defense, and assistance to retirees in need, teacher grants and scholarships.
An inspirational program on the demonstration of patriotism from past to present was given by Angie Snook of the Geneseo Historical Museum. She shared history of the roles of men and women who have made a difference in the defense of our country. She also shared a variety of memorabilia and equipment from the Civil War to present. She ended with a singing, patriotically-adorned bear who led the group in singing “God Bless America”.
