The April 2018 QART Newsletter is now available

You can find our latest newsletter at this link.




The QART Annual General Meeting will take place in the St. Pius X library on Wednesday, May 30th, at 10:15 A.M.

 The main item will be the nomination and election of the entire QART executive. All QART executive members are completing their last year of a two-year term.

 Also, on the agenda is the presentation of the report for the previous financial year (April 1, 2017 to March 31st, 2018) and the naming of the auditor for the new financial year from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.

After the general meeting at 11:30 A.M., the St. Pius X Culinary Institute will be serving a full-course lunch to our members in the dining room. The cost of this lunch is $20 but regular paid-up members and honorary members of QART who participated in the AGM will be charged only $15 each, tax and tip included. The reduced price is  in appreciation of those who attended the AGM and helped us deal with the business at hand.

 Please contact Annie Schaffhauser (azuk1024@gmail.com or 514-374-1549) on or before Tuesday, May 22. to tell us if you will be attending the AGM and lunch. We finalize our numbers with Pius X on Wednesday, May 23rd.

ACER-CART (Canadian Association of Retired Teachers)

I wish to thank Ed Zegray for the many years that he has represented QART on the ACER-CART directorship. I also wish to congratulate him on his recent appointment to the ACER-CART Executive. He is now an executive officer of ACER-CART as Regional Representative for Eastern Canada including Quebec and the Maritimes. Sadly this prevents Ed from representing us in particular

As President of QART, I will, by default, be QART's new representative at ACER-CART until such time as the QART Executive Committee names a new ACER-CART representative.

Ed will continue to represent us at the provincial level on the GTAR (Le Groupe de travail des associations de retraites).
