Welcome to the Mainland Retired Teachers Association web site! We welcome retired teachers, administrators, and all support personnel, as well as nutrition, custodial, transportation, and maintenance services personnel. Most of our members come from the Texas City, La Marque, Dickinson, Santa Fe, and Hitchcock School Districts, as well as College of the Mainland. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May. Come join us at 12:30 p.m. and share friendship and refreshments with other retired personnel before each meeting begins. The meetings, held at Nessler Civic Center, 2010 5th Avenue North in Texas City, will keep you informed of the latest that TRTA is doing to protect and improve our TRS benefits.
Dues are $50 for the year 2016-2017. $35 of that amount goes to TRTA for state dues, and the other $15 is to cover local expenses and help with our Children's Book Project in the fall and in the spring, our scholarship for a graduate planning to pursue a degree in education. If you would like to join, you can mail a check made out to MRTA to Treasurer, Rita Boykin, 2918 18th Avenue North, Texas City, Texas 77590-4902.
Join us for our meeting on Wednesday, February 15 at 12:30 p.m. Our special guest speaker will be Dr. Cynthia Lusignolo, Texas City ISD Superintendent of Schools.
Bring a new member who joins our local unit and get your name put in next year's March drawing for $50--just enough to pay next year's dues! Sue Peace won the drawing last March and received her 2016-2017 dues free.
