I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year.

This year promises to be very busy on a local level.  TAL will be hosting a NYSTRS seminar at the Middle School on Wednesday, February 5th, at 4:30 PM.  This will present a wonderful opportunity for members who plan to retire in the near future to receive very important and useful information.  I look forward to seeing many of you there.

I am also very happy to report that we have a maximum number of TAL building representatives working for our membership this year.  This includes a new building representative at the Bower Academy.  Many thanks to those of you who have expressed a willingness to become more involved.  Your dedication is very much appreciated.

Respectfully Submitted,
Michael Pastore
