LAST MEETING

 The Big Spring Area Retired Teachers Association met in Howard College's Cactus Room, August 16.

Ruth Nanny, a volunteer with the Big Spring State Hospital, gave a brief history of the Big Spring State Hospital's volunteer services and of The Chalet. She said the Chalet furnishes clothing for the clients of the hospital that need them. It also sells clothing, knick knacks and books at very reasonable prices. These proceeds go to help the patients at the hospital.

                                                                                             NEXT MEETING

 Our next meeting will be September 27, at the Howard College Cactus Room. Note that this is a temporary change from our regular third-Monday time which will be back in effect in October.

CONCERNS

 When you come to meetings and pay for your meal, please remember to put some of your change into the Book Fund basket at the nearby table. You might also consider making a Book Fund donation in honor or memory of someone.
