East Parry Sound Branch
We are a small branch of just over 50 members, who live within a large area of the Near North. Our branch takes its name from the former East Parry Sound Board of Education, and many of our members retired from years of teaching with that board or with its larger successor, the Near North District School Board. Still, others of us have retired to this beautiful part of Ontario, after teaching careers in southern Ontario and beyond.
Whether you’ve lived in this area all your life or have recently moved here, you’ll be sure to find a warm welcome, wonderful friends and interesting programs and activities in our branch. Our members live in or near many of the little villages in East Parry Sound, namely, South River, Sundridge, Burk’s Falls, Magnetawan, Kearney, Loring, Nipissing, Port Loring, Powassan, and Trout Creek.
We post two newsletters a year on this site, one in September and one in April, to outline our events and activities. Our Outreach projects include offering annually a bursary to a graduating high school student in our area who is pursuing post-secondary studies. We live by the motto ‘Caring and Sharing’ and for us, that always includes having fun.
Our meetings are always the third Thursday of September, October, April, May and June, and if you’re a retired teacher living in this area, and are interested in our organization, we would love to have you join us. Please consider coming to one of our meetings. There’s always a place for you, here!
