Retired teachers hold monthly meet

Reeves County Retired School personnel met for their monthly meeting in February recently at the Pecos Senior Center.

President Doris Moorman called the meeting to order and was followed by a devotion given by Billie Sadler.

During the business session, minutes of the previous meeting were read by secretary Elizabeth Schmidt and treasurer Paula Fuller gave the financial report.

Other reports were given on health concerns by Schmidt, community services by Sadler, and Texas Legislative priorities by Moorman.

Refreshments were served by Fariss Murphy and Juracy Ray.

In honor of Black History Month, the group enjoyed an interesting book review presented by Daisy Roquemore.

Roquemore reviewed, "The Yellow Rose of Texas, her Saga and Song," written by Martha Ann Grimes. The story was about Emily Morgan, a slave who was brought to Texas by Colonel Morgan as an indentured servant. While Col. Morgan and his soldiers were gone to Galveston, Santa Anna raised the province and took prisoners. Emily was given credit for delaying Santa Anna so that the Mexican soldiers were not prepared for the attack by the Texas soldiers.

The next meeting will be held April 3. The speaker will be Dr. Charles Gann, who will tell about his trips to Honduras. Members were asked to bring used glasses for Dr. Gann's next trip to Honduras.

Anyone who has been employed in school activities is invited to attend the meetings.
