From the President’s Quill
Dear SCREA Members,
Greetings and welcome to our new members. We look forward to seeing you at our Spring luncheon on May 6th at the Elks Lodge in Bridgewater, NJ. The meeting begins at 11:00 A.M. and is followed by lunch and time to socialize. To celebrate the New Year, we are reducing our luncheon fee to $20.00 for 2020. Our guests will be Mike Salerno from NJEA Research and the House Manager of the Theater at RVCC who will give us a preview of upcoming programs and who is donating two free tickets for luncheon door prize. The Theater at RVCC offers all members of NJEA/NJREA four tickets to all of their shows at 50% off. All members have to do is present their membership cards at the box office when they pick up their tickets. We will also be voting on SCREA officer positions and a by-law change. Please read Nominations Committee Update in this issue of SCREAch.
I have been informed that members who are on Aetna Medicare Advantage 10 or 15 can expect their co-pay reimbursement checks at the end of March. This happens automatically, you do not have to apply. Aetna will be sending you a letter informing you of the amount you should receive.
Thanks to all who purchased jewelry at our December meeting. Sue Vigilante donated $110. to the NJREA Scholarship fund in the name of SCREA.
Earlier this week NJEA President Marie Blistan and New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney announced a landmark agreement providing NJEA members with long-sought relief from Ch. 78 while also lowering costs for local education emplyers and the state. Mike Salerno will update us on the details at our May luncheon. Please check NJEA website for details https://www.njea.org/
