Volunteers Hours

Remember to keep a record of your volunteer hours and turn them in to Tina Ratliff at each meeting.  She always has special door prizes for a lucky few! 

One of our goals is to increase the hours our retirees volunteer. Retired school employees provide millions of hours of volunteering. Keeping a record of these hours helps us to inform the public, and our representatives/politicians, that we do provide a considerable contribution to society, and are worthy of their consideration when we need something, like a cost of living adjustment to our annunity.

Helping at church, schools, hospitals, nursing homes; cooking for others, providing transportation for others, visiting sick family or friends are just a few of the ways we volunteer.

For more suggestions on creditable volunteer service hours, please refer to the KSRA Handbook.
