From The President’s Desk:
Dear OCREA Members,
I’m sure you have all made your New Year’s Resolutions by now and hopefully are well on your way to fulfilling them. Make a valiant effort to maintain them as our intentions are positive and we’re all gung ho because the new year is a fresh start!
Remember when we were working as educators, support personnel, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, secretaries, etc.? The New Year gave us fresh perspective on our mission to educate children and set a good example for them. Even though we were just about in the middle of the school year, the calendar for the New Year established a fresh outlook for all of us and our students. Let’s maintain that positive outlook and attempt to look with ‘fresh eyes’ to make this world a better place.
We have been fruitful all of last year with the establishment of a new slate of officers for NJEA and NJREA; have elected a new Governor, Phil Murphy; have written to many Legislators regarding pertinent concerns; have attended meetings on the local level and state level; have responded when OCREA has requested your involvement (and, there’s always room for more of you to come along); have attended OCREA Luncheons to keep up with what is going on in New Jersey; have been introduced to a new prescription plan; have gone on trips planned by OCREA; have spread the word to prospective new members or ‘should be members’ and assisted in their joining OCREA; and, have reached out to the community at large via contributions to worthy charities, donating money for scholarships and joining other community organizations who need our assistance and expertize. You didn’t know you did so much, did you?
Please continue to read the Wavelet, call committee chairs with your concerns or ask “how can I help”, read the Website, attend the Luncheons which are social in nature but informative, travel along with us when you can and have a Healthy and Happy New Year!!!! See you all soon!
