Oct 16-22 proclaimed Retired Teacher's Week in Columbia

From Tiffany Collins

The week of October 16-22, 2023, has been proclaimed as Adair County Retired Teacher's Week in Columbia, as the result of a proclamation issued by Columbia Mayor Pamela Hoots on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.

The Adair County Retired Teachers Association will have a booth setup during Downtown Days this week. The local ACRTA has donated to the food pantry, family resource centers, raised money for an Adair County graduate to receive a scholarship, recognized a local essay winner; as well as donating to other local and state organizations.

The KRTA was established in 1957 and is the largest association with 32,000 members of retired educators in the state whose sole purpose is to look out for the welfare of retired educators.

The proclamation notes in part:
"Kentucky's 2014 General Assembly has honored Kentucky Retired Teachers by recognizing the third week of October as Kentucky Retired Teachers Appreciation Week."
"We appreciate the local Adair County Retired Teachers Association and their commitment to our community," stated Mayor Pamela Hoots.
