Retired educators begin new year with luncheon
KEENE — Cheshire County Retired Educators Association members will meet for their first luncheon of the 2012-13 school year Tuesday at Stonewall Farm, Chesterfield Road.
Hosts Ann Ayotte and Bob Lammela will welcome members to the event, which will feature social time from noon to 12:30 p.m., followed by a luncheon buffet.
Organizers say the afternoon's program is intended to amaze and mystify, with Keene High School alumnus Jason Purdy, an illusionist and magician, providing entertainment for an audience that will include many of his former teachers.
The association comprises retired teachers, administrators and educational support personnel who live or formerly taught in Cheshire County.
Those interested in attending the luncheon or joining the association — and especially new retirees — should contact Kenneth Whitaker, membership chairman, at 827-3702.
