The Laredo Area Retired School Employees Association (LARSEA) is a TRTA local unit in District 1. We advocate for improved benefits for all public school retirees and promote the well-being of our members. We aim to provide and maintain a functional and united organization for retired public school employees in the Laredo area. It meets on the second Thursday of each month starting in September through April. We meet at 11 AM at the Blessed Sacrament Parish Hall. Informative meetings are held followed by a meal. In May an annual banquet is held. The awards ceremony includes the installation of new officers and the awarding of scholarships to deserving sophomore college students. Members pay local and state dues and receive member benefits. Members are kept up to date with important TRS information and changes.
