Along with recent graduates, a good number of newly retired teachers will be beginning a new phase of their lives as well.

To help them adjust to their new reality, the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Retired Teachers Association is hosting a To Hell With The Bell breakfast at 10 a.m. on the Tuesdatk.

Cost for newly retired members is only $5. Current RTA members who wish to attend are also welcome to join in the fun.

Regular bimonthly RTA luncheons start again Oct.4 at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 256, 1630 East Wellington Rd.

Retired educators from other districts and provinces are welcome to attend and to become members of the local association.

Please RSVP to Pat at 250-753-5971 by Friday (Sept. 2) about attending either event.
