Wiarton Branch News

Hello and welcome to all retired women teachers to the RWTO/OERO Wiarton Branch in Area 1. The Wiarton Branch covers a large geographic area in Bruce County including Tobermory, Miller Lake, Lion’s Head, Stokes Bay, Barrow Bay, Pike Bay, Red Bay, Hepworth, Sauble Beach, Wiarton, Tara, Chesley and the many other small towns and other bays on the Bruce.

Wiarton Branch is a group of 52 retired women teachers who care, share and have fun together. We hail from the public, Catholic and private school boards including elementary, secondary and post-secondary from Tobermory to Chesley. We welcome all retired teachers in the Northern Bruce County Area to join us.

As a retired women teacher you do not have to be collecting a teacher’s pension to become a member as long as you received teacher qualifications. Even if you only taught for a few years, you qualify as a retired teacher.

Our motto is “Caring and Sharing and Having Fun” and we do! The Wiarton Branch meets four times a year including a summer pot luck luncheon in July at Inglis Falls.
