President's Message

By Susan Phillips

This winter 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.


RTO/ERO is an inclusive organization dedicated to supplying information and services to our members and advocating for all seniors. In March, RTO/ERO will have been in existence for 50 years. We will be celebrating our birthday with an old fashioned birthday party, complete with birthday cake, lots of lovely prizes, a free drink, trivia and lots more. We hope you come out and celebrate with us. We hope you are enjoying the historical information about past presidents we are providing in each issue of The 34th Story leading up to our anniversary celebration.


On a more sombre note, I was contacted recently by RTO/ERO. One of our District 34 members had suffered a medical emergency while traveling out of the country and they were trying to reach his family. No one could be reached by calling his home number and he did not have an emergency contact number with him. Please make sure you carry an emergency contact number on you when you are travelling. Or, you could list the number of a family member or close friend on your cell phone under your contacts labelled emergency.


I hope all of you who attended the Fall Luncheon enjoyed meeting up with friends as well as the good food and entertainment. We are planning something a little different for our next Fall Luncheon. As we have many talented members, we thought we would include an art and craft show and sale. This is just a heads up to give you an opportunity to think about participating. Further details will be provided in subsequent newsletters.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me or any other member of the executive.
