KARE THEME for 2019-2020

Our KARE theme for this year is “Solving the Puzzle of an A+ Retirement.” Through our programs, projects, and the fun events that we have planned this year, we can easily reach that goal. KARE helps retired public school employees stay connected to retirees with a common vision and goal—to have the best, most productive, and enjoyable retirement! So, grab your puzzle pieces and let’s figure out how KARE can help you put them together to have an A+ Retirement!

Our programs and events are listed below. We would love to have every retiree in the Katy area join us for one or all of them.
