September 9, 2018 – ACREA – I regret to inform the ACREA membership that our current Board Chair Bob Mace passed away Friday, Sept. 7. Bob had been a member of the ACREA Board for the last three years and was very active in supporting the membership. Bob retired in 2012 after working 32 years with Arlington County, 16 years each in Human Resources and Environmental Services. A service is to be planned for late September or early October. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Bob’s name to So Others Might Eat (SOME), a charity food bank in DC.
Greetings from ACREA!
The Fall Luncheon is getting closer. Come join us for fellowship and various updates from County representatives and officials and the ACREA Board. The County Manager will speak and HR will give us details concerning the upcoming selection of the Trustees representing retirees for the Retirement Fund. The Luncheon details are:
When: Tuesday, October 2, 2018
Time: 10:30 AM social hour with buffet lunch to follow
Place: Little Falls Presbyterian Church, 6025 N. Little Falls Road, Arlington
Price: $12 per person
Please confirm your participation via our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to pay in advance, please send a check made out to ACREA to our mail box:
PO Box 5122
Arlington, VA 22205
Please note: We need one or two members to fill the positions of those Board members rotating off the Board. The work is meaningful, satisfying, and flexible. Board members would generally be expected to attend the fall and spring luncheons and two Board meetings a year. The Board meetings are normally held in Arlington and typically last two hours. Members are expected to help with the work of the organization as needed. Being a Board member is not burdensome and totals about 20 to 40 hours a year. Please let us know of your interest or questions!!
Please also note our policy for guest lunch fees has changed. The new policy is “When a new member joins ACREA, he/she is entitled to attend their first luncheon for free.”
See you in October,
Carl Newby, ACREA Vice Chair
PLEASE NOTE OUR MAIL ADDRESS IS CHANGED WITH A NEW BOX NUMBER: ACREA P.O. BOX 5122 ARLINGTON, VA 22205
