KINGMAN - The Kingman Area School Retirees Association held its annual Ditch Day/Potluck event at Upton's Hidden Pines Bed and Breakfast on Sept. 14. The theme was "Gone Fishing To Reel In New Members." Four recent retirees have joined our ranks as Barb Fuller, Steve Kocher, Duane Nelson and Karon Winokur became members. We were honored to have State Association President Mary Murphy travel from Phoenix to attend and address us concerning important legislative matters affecting retirees.

Our organization can now display two eye-catching banners at parades and other public functions, thanks to several members who donated their time and money to make this possible. The Andy Devine Days Parade was the first time our new banners were on display. Members wear red polo shirts with the state association logo on the front whenever they do volunteer work at the schools or attend association functions, thus letting the community know we are still dedicated to education!
