Fun and Educational

Jun 28, 2017

To the Editor:

All former New Jersey public school employees are welcome to join the Ocean County Retired Educators Association’s ever-increasing membership, currently standing at about 1,300. 

OCREA, founded in 1959 and affiliated with the New Jersey Education Association, provides retired educators with information via a newsletter and meetings. The four annual luncheons offer members an enjoyable chance to socialize as well as gather information on issues of importance to them. OCREA trips range from multi-week excursions to day trips. They not only enhance members’ knowledge but also offer a pleasant change of pace. Remaining trips this year include Cape Cod and Nantucket, Culinary Institute of America and a boat ride on the Hudson River. 

The association works to better its members’ lives and also the lives of others by its charitable functions. Each year, OCREA provides help to others by awarding three scholarships, several major donations to local charities, four food collections and other community actions.

If you are a retired state public school employee, you are eligible for membership in OCREA as part of a unified membership with NJREA and NEA Retired. To join, visit njea.org/njrea and download the membership application. If you have association questions, contact me at langbi2@comcast.net or 609-207-0038.
