All retirees of the Cherokee County Education Retirees Association are invited to attend the first monthly meeting of the New Year at Lanny’s Restaurant (in the private dining room). The starting time will be Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 11 a.m. Guest speakers will be Patricia Davis Harton and daughter, Christa Carnell Davis. Christa has written a true story of the battles her mother has been through after showing signs of allergies to metals in life-saving devices. All citizens need to be aware of these various sensitivities before undergoing some of these surgeries. There will be a question and answer time from the audience. There will be books available for those who wish to share the story with other older folks. After a short business meeting conducted by Billy Wayne Tillery, president, attendees are invited to stay for a “Dutch-treat” lunch and socialize with other retirees. For additional information, call 256-526-8583.
