Welcome to our 22nd year in the Katy Area Retired Educators (KARE) Organization. This past year we were “Getting Back on Track” by resuming in-person meetings and worthwhile KARE projects that have been so dear to our hearts. Post-pandemic, we are now spotlighting our new retirees and wonderful members with this year’s theme, “Time to Shine”. We kickoff with the annual “Hooky Day” celebration in August for all retirees. We have meetings, field trips, opportunities to volunteer and plenty of ways to shine! Put your sparkle on and join our energetic and fun members in the Katy Area Retired Educators.
