RTA End of Year Dinner Tues., June 17, 2014

Subject: RTA End of Year Dinner
Date: Tues., June 17, 2014
Time: 6-9pm
Cost: $55
Location:
Emmett’s Castle
285 Blue Hill Road
Pearl River, NY 10965

This year, we have one retiree (Deb Phelps – HS Chorus teacher) who is lovely and ready to leave her Ramapo Central family. In fact, she is so excited, she’s throwing herself a HUGE party. So that leaves the rest of us to put 2014 behind us and pat ourselves on the back, reacquaint ourselves with colleagues that we haven’t seen in awhile and just have fun. There will be no formal sit down dinner. Instead, we will laugh as appetizers are passed and high five each other as we make a second trip to the buffet.

So leave your fancy clothes behind and join in the fun! It will be a great, informal way to spend a fun night out.

Return the RTA Dinner Flyer 2014 to Sarah Kern at SHS by June 13th.
