K.A.R.E. Theme for 2021-2022: “Getting Back on Track”

Welcome to our 21st year in the Katy Area Retired Educators (KARE) organization. This past year has been such a challenge in so many ways, but KARE is ready to begin this new year by “Getting Back on Track” on the TRTA Express! This will include in-person meetings and fun and worthwhile projects that will help enhance the lives of KARE members in many ways. Meetings will no longer have to be Virtual Zoom meetings, as we are resuming in person meetings in August with our annual Hooky Day Celebration. So, fire up your engines and come “get back on track” with our fun and energetic members in Katy Area Retired Educators.

Earlene Hopkins, President
