Retired Teachers Association Celebrates 40 Years

Seventy-three members of the Pittsford District Retired Teachers Association (PDRTA) gathered for brunch at Shadow Lake Golf Club on September 7 to celebrate 40 years.

In honor of 40 years, $40 gift certificates were donated for the annual raffle. The annual raffle raised $437 for the Barbara Shapiro Scholarship fund, which awards a scholarship to a senior from each high school who plans to pursue a career in education.

Guest speakers were alumnae and business owners Amie Freling-Brown ('85) of Meme Hill Studio of Fine Art and Interior Design, and Jenny Freling Ralph ('87) of Wisteria Flowers and Gifts. Their “circle of life" themed speech followed their journey from Allen Creek Elementary to Mendon Center Jr. High to Sutherland High School. Many of their former teachers were present at the event.

Thank you to our retired teachers for their ongoing support of education at PCSD.
