Join Your Active Retirees
The Golden Triangle TARA chapter meets this week. If you live in this area, you will receive a separate email about the meeting.
TARA MEMBERS PROTEST CLIMATE CHANGES
Dallas TARA activists joined the young folks protesting climate change on December 6th. Thanks to Gene Lantz, Zen Biasco, Bob Fusinato, Larry Hamilton and Patricia Murphy for standing up to say, “There are no retirees on a dead planet!” “TARA did not jump in front of the young folks, but we backed them”, said state TARA Secretary Lantz!
