The McIntosh County Retired Teachers met Sept. 13 at the Jim Lucas Library in Checotah.

Linda Hansen, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), gave an informative talk, plus brochures and treats to attendees.

Toastmasters

If you think traveling with children is hard, you should try traveling with senior citizens, according to Mary Ankrom. Ankrom’s humorous speech included suggestions to keep your spouse from getting lost in a RV park such as putting a sign in the back window of your RV that says, “Catch me if you Can!” She also suggested wristbands with traveling information in case the person gets lost.

The next Toastmasters meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 1 at Three Rivers Museum, 220 Elgin.
