Jefferson County Unit of Iowa Retired School Personnel

The next meeting of the Jefferson County Unit of Iowa Retired School Personnel will be a potluck starting at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the McElhinny House.

All members are invited and are asked to bring a dish to share if possible.

Anyone in this area who is a retiree from a Jefferson County school or any other school district and is interested in joining the organization is welcome to attend. Contact Judith McDonough at 641-936-4628 or Jane Rowe at 472-4347 for more information.

The Retired School Personnel Association is a national organization for any retirees of any school, not just teachers. It is separate from the AARP, but has some links to it because both organizations share a common founder, explained Michele Weber, secretary of the Jefferson County Unit of Iowa Retired School Personnel.

 

Alzheimer’s Association Greater Iowa Chapter

DES MOINES -- The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Iowa Chapter was recently recognized as a Service Enterprise Initiative organization, which provides extensive training to volunteers in furthering the mission of the association.

Executive Director Doug Bickford compared this designation to a gold standard for nonprofit organizations.

Staff and volunteers must participate in research-based assessment, training, consulting and certification. This process allows the organization to leverage the skills and expertise of volunteers at all levels. The designation is awarded by the Service Enterprise Initiative, led by Points of Light that strengthens the capacity of nonprofits to leverage the skill sets and talents of volunteers to address community needs.
