A Message From Your Leadership

Dear SCREA Members,

To quote comedian Robin Williams, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”  After these past few months, I’m sure that those of us who are living in New Jersey are more than ready to celebrate the end of winter.  Speaking of celebrations, on January 16 the ribbon was cut and the new office of the Somerset County Education Association was officially opened for business at CenterPointe at Bridgewater located on Route 22 East.  On January 28, we held our own open house to welcome members of the Somerset County Retired Educators Association.  If you missed that event, look for a future announcement of another open house at one of our Fall SCREA Executive Board meetings.

Please join us on May 7 for our Spring meeting which will be held at Pheasant’s Landing.  The meeting begins at 11:00 AM and is followed by lunch and time to socialize.  Our speaker will be Steve Eugene from NEA Member Benefits.  Last year Steve was very well received when he spoke about identity theft.  Steve’s new presentation is entitled “Cyber Security Awareness: What’s At Risk May Surprise You.”  If you conduct any transactions such as shopping or banking online, this talk is for you.  If you use the Internet only for email and research, it is still important to learn about essential precautions and cyber attacks to watch out for.  Steve is a very knowledgeable and entertaining presenter.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all on May 7.  As always feel free to contact us with your questions or concerns.


Carol Shields, SCREA President
