Hamilton-Wentworth Branch News
RWTO Hamilton-Wentworth is a vibrant social club of nearly 300 area retired women teachers, just one of the 51 branches located across the province. Our members are former Public, Catholic and Private School teachers from the elementary and secondary panels, who gather to enjoy the company of other retirees, excellent programs and community involvement.
With 4 annual luncheons, numerous special events, and over 20 Interest Groups (including the 4 Book Clubs and 2 Euchre Groups), our members are actively engaged in activities whenever they wish to be. Attendance is on a “come when you can” basis – for as retirees, we often lead active lives, including family, friends, faith, community and travel. In our more senior years, our organization provides newsletters, and occasional visits, gifts and cards, in keeping with our motto of “Caring and Sharing”.
Come & enjoy our adventures!
