HOSPITALITY RESERVATION REPORT
A warm welcome to all Mahoning County Retired Teachers. I am Maggie Skripac your new Hospitality chairperson. I have been a member of MRTA since 2002 and have enjoyed every delicious lunch and program. I have enjoyed keeping in touch with teacher friends and meeting new retired teachers.
As officers and committee chairs come and go, new ideas are suggested to make their jobs more efficient. Hospitality is no exception. Here are two changes that I'd like to implement. I spoke about these changes at the Jene meeting: 1. No more checks for 2 or more meetings. The bookkeeping gets too complicated, when holding the money for a second luncheon. PLEASE PAY AS YOU GO! 2. I must receive your reservation check by the Wednesday before theluncheon. The banquet center needs to order the food in advance. Thank you for making these two adjustments. I am looking forward to seeing you at the September 12 meeting. Remember to invite a former teacher or bring a friend, as both are welcome.!
