Late autumn greetings to all ER members and a special welcome back to our snowbird members.
The next general meeting of the Educators Retired Club will be on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 1:30PM at the Canal Street Recreation Center. PLEASE NOTE the change of meeting date since the General Election will be held on the second Tuesday of the month and the Canal Street Recreation Center is a polling station.
For our program this month, Morris Wolff, an ER Club member, will provide a presentation regarding his work on the international stage to secure the freedom of Holocaust hero Raoul Wallenberg, as discussed in his book "Whatever Happened to Raoul Wallenberg?"

ER Winter Trip. The Special Events Committee has planned our Winter Trip to Yoder's Amish Restaurant in Sarasota and Mazzaro's Italian Market in St. Petersburg for Tuesday, January 24, 2017.

One of our Club members, Mikki Blumberg, is Project Coordinator for the annual Pajama & Books Drive benefiting homeless children in the tri-county area. Donations of new pajamas and new books are being accepted at ALL Villages recreation centers through mid-December.
I look forward to seeing you next week,
Anne Kellogg, President
