From the President’s Quill

Dear SCREA Members,

We are pleased to announce that our old friend, Wayne Dibofsky, will be the guest speaker at the SCREA December luncheon.  many of us knew or worked with Wayne when he was the NJEA lobbyist assigned to Somerset County.  He is now Director of Member Services at HealthCare Assistance which provides help to NJEA members and their families.  His topic will be “Stress Free Retirement” and he has assured me that, as usual, he’ll leave you laughing.  Please join us and bring a friend.

In this issue you will find a list of candidates that NJEA has endorsed for the November 4 election.  NJEA’s PAC (Political Action Committee) recommends candidates based on their understanding and support of issues which effect our membership.  Our retired members statewide have a proud record of making their voices heard on Election Day and now, more than ever, we need to speak with a unified voice and take collective action to protect our pensions and our profession.  Please support our candidates.

Please remember that at the December meeting we bring unwrapped gifts for families who are served by the Homesharing Program of Somerset County, Inc..  Toys, books, games and clothing are needed.  Also, if you are interested in helping with the Holiday Program at Homesharing, you may call them directly at 908-526-4463.

We look forward to seeing you at the NJEA/NJREA Convention in Atlantic City on November 5 and at Pheasants Landing on December 3.


Carol Shields, SCREA President
