Rockwall Area Retired Teachers Association

You are invited to visit one of our local meetings and experience it for yourself. Each month there are yummy snacks, an exciting program, and an opportunity to meet other retirees who share many of the same experiences you love and cherish.

RARTA has a Facebook Page. Just search “Rockwall Area Retired Teachers” and you can see all the recent postings.

RARTA publishes a monthly newsletter and emails a copy to all members. We would love to send you a newsletter if you could provide an email address. You will find interesting articles, reminders of upcoming meetings, legislative updates, and recipes.
