Kitchener-Waterloo Branch News

KW-RWTO is delighted to welcome you to our site and to invite retired women teachers from the Kitchener-Waterloo area to join us. The KW Branch holds four luncheons a year at the Sunshine Centre at Luther Village. Each luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m., with a Mix and Mingle as we circulate to visit with friends and former colleagues. A delicious buffet luncheon follows and a speaker or other form of entertainment completes our event. In addition to our four fun luncheons, we have six sensational interest groups: knitting, court whist, lunch bunch, drum circle, memoir writing and a walking club, every Thursday morning year ‘round:

The annual membership fee for the KW-RWTO Branch is $40.00 and retired women teachers are eligible to join at any time. Additional information about joining us can be obtained by contacting Anne Cameron at 519-886-2930 or
