President's Message

By Susan Phillips

As the wind howls and the snow falls we are tempted to hibernate, but please have a look through this issue of The 34th Story and be inspired to come out and participate in some of our District 34 events. If you have any ideas for activities that would be of interest and benefit the membership, please contact us.

Susan Phillips

RTO/ERO has been in existence for almost 50 years. We will be celebrating our bicentennial in 2018.We hope you are enjoying the historical information we are providing in each issue of The 34th Story leading up to our anniversary celebration. RTO/ERT is an inclusive organization dedicated to supplying information and services to our members and advocating for all  seniors.

There has been a small change to our procedure for people participating in bus trips to the theatre outside York Region. The Ontario Government has changed the legislation requiring us to organize events through a travel agency, so we are returning to our old policy of making your cheques payable to RTO/ERO District 34.You will still have to sign the waiver which we will provide in our newsletter, 34th Story.

We have an opening for a position as E-mail Communications Representative. If anyone is interested in filling this position, please contact me. Also, if anyone would like to learn how to become to a newsletter editor and web designer and then become our new  Newsletter editor and webmaster, please contact Grant Dale.

Ti Amo Fine Wines

By Donna Jewell


Come out and discover the world of winemaking at TI AMO FINE WINES where you can have fun making wines from all around the world…!!! Winemaker Joe will lead you on this journey. Attend this very informative event and get your Sunday afternoon "degree" in winemaking!

Space is limited to 50 guests so reserve your place today! The cost is only $10.00 a person! Your admission price may also be applied later to a wine order but note that the discount is limited to one $10 discount per batch. Batches of wine yield 30 bottles and friends may share batches. That's a great way to try different wines too but, remember, there is no obligation to purchase. 

Join us there on a winter Sunday afternoon to socialize with your RTO friends, learn more about wine and to enjoy light refreshments.
