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:

Our motto of “Caring and Sharing” is evident in the variety of charities which we support as listed in our 2019-2020 Program Brochure. 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 email@example.com.
“Members Jeanette (floral top) and Ellen (salmon top) lead the membership in a line dance, our five minutes of exercise done at each luncheon. Past luncheons had us participating in tai chi, latin dances, belly dance and even Bollywood, all led by various members.”
Summer lunch fun with L-R, Barb Seaton, Anne Cameron and Life Member, Eleanor Day.
