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, Pauline Liggio, at 17231 Saturn Lane, Houston, TX 77058-2293.

Join us for our meeting on March 21 in the Captain's Room of Nessler Center at 12:30 p.m. Come and hear Texas City ISD Superintendent Dr. Rodney Cavness tell us about what is happening in the district and about the upcoming Bond Election.


Looking ahead:     

On April 18, we will have our Annual Plant Swap.  Bring a cutting or a plant and explain what it is and how to care for it.  If you forget yours, don't worry, we always end up with plants left over.


On May 16, our own Millie Edwards will present her program, "Treasured Memories."


The officers and committee chair attended the District 4 Fall Conference at the Orozco Professional Complex in Pasadena on October 11, 2017.  Our legislators from District 4 were honored.  Those attending were Nancy Heard, Eleanore Wuthrich, Rita Boykin, Pauline Liggio, Ben and Dolores Cavil, Sandy Damron, Betty Dion, Paula Dellis, and Herb Wuthrich
