No room, no room.
Our picnic/meeting was held in Plover's Heritage Park. The weather was comfortable, the company wonderful. It was great to be able to socialize once again. A shout-out to Sherrilee for organizing the food. We were excited to learn of a great opportunity that the Historical Society has been offered.

“The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity .…They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.” — Vice President Henry A. Wallace, April 9, 1944.

WREA and WEA are NOT the same organization. WREA’s main purpose is to protect the pension system and support public education. WEA is/was the union. Being a member of one doesn’t equate to being a member of the other. Many of us are life members of both.
There is an early start to people paying their dues for the coming financial year. SPARTA dues remain at $12 and WREA dues at $60. If $60 sounds like a lot, just check out your pension checks from ETF. THAT'S what your $60 has brought to you.
These people are paid for the 2021-2022 year:
It's been awhile. I deeply apologize. It's not that we haven't been busy with SPARTA stuff. In the last two months we've sold off much of our book inventory, moved the remainder to storage, moved bookcases to the Inclusa facility, and shut down our place at the children's museum.
It is true that I haven't been maintaining this site as it should be. The feeling from the Executive Board is that we should have a FaceBook page. We'll need someone to set this up and maintain it. If you know of anyone who would be interested, please contact Santha or me.
In the meantime, we hope to see you at the picnic on Monday, July 12 at Heritage Park.
