On Tuesday, October 22,  Robert Wuschenny of Regina, the provincial president of the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan visited with the Tisdale Chapter members.  Eighteen members of the chapter, plus one guest, were also joined by Provincial Executive Liaison Kate McCorriston of Nipawin and Lynda Gudjonson, president of the Red Deer River Valley Chapter. 
Tisdale Chapter President, Deanna Gruending , welcomed everyone to St Matthew's Anglican Church Hall before they enjoyed the lunch of pizza and salad.
Following the lunch, Robert Wuschenny did a quick review of the past 40 years of the STS and then updated the members on activities at the provincial level. There are now 10,300 members in forty-three chapters.  The Benefits Plans are doing well.  90% of retired teachers join the STS and about 70% are members of the benefits plans.  Disposition of resolutions from last Annual General Meeting are now posted on
the web site. The diaries printed by the STS have been well received by the members. The Superannuation Commission is to carry out their usual duties and now have two additional staff. 

This year the Annual General Meeting will be held May 13 - 15 at the Travelodge Hotel in Saskatoon. The Pre-Retirement Seminar of the STF is to be combined with the Retirement Lifestyles Seminar of the STS for two presentations this year. One will be held in Regina and the other in Saskatoon. The STS offices will be relocated during the summer. George Georget has been elected to the ACER-CART executive and Robert Wuschenny is the chair of the Age Friendly Community Committee of the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism.

Robert ended his presentation by reminding the members to make certain that they take their
Blue Cross cards with them when they travel out of the country.
