The Marshall County Retired Teachers Association held a Christmas luncheon on Dec. 13 at the Church Street Church of Christ Annex. It was hosted by First Farmers and Merchants National Bank of Lewisburg.

Special guests were FF&M Director Don Wright, advisory board member Elizabeth McDow, and FR&M Relationship Manager Barbara Capps.

White spoke to the group about bank services that are available. He also mentioned identity theft and cautioned members to refrain from freely releasing their Social Security number.

Marshall County Environment and Solid Waste Director Morgan Thomas spoke on the subject of recycling. He asked for volunteers to serve on a committee to develop curriculum for the schools and present information to the schools. The southwest corner of the county will start a recycling program in March.

Greg Lowe spoke on behalf of the Marshall County Imagination Library. This program of providing free books to children under 5 years old was started by Dolly Parton, and has been funded by businesses and organizations since 2005.

A special presentation was made to Sarah Morgan, the oldest living charter member of the MRCTA. Lucy Fay Hinds, her daughter, accepted a frame with postcards of all the schools where Sarah taught.

Poinsettias were sent to the following shut-ins: Louise Cochran, Sara Harris, Sarah Jones, Margaret Jordan, Robert Mason, Sarah Morgan, and Ruth Orr.
