                                                                          NSEA-RETIRED  PVREA  MISSION

     NSEA-Retired shall be dedicated to the promotion of retirement with dignity, happiness, and adequate income by:

     a.  promoting the social, professional and economic status,  and the general welfare of retired public school employees,

     b.  providing a forum for united action with others who are devoted to the cause of public education,

     c.  promoting voluntary participation by its members in civic and educational affairs.



                                           History of NSEA Retired PVREA

     The Platte Valley Retired Education Association (PVREA) in affiliation with NSEA-R started on November 28, 2005 when Mo Nickels and Joe Higgins made contact with the following 4 members in the Grand Island area.  Those members were our first officers:  President - Gary Nickels, Vice President - Rita Lammers, Treasurer - Stan Urwiller, and Secretary - Martha McGahan.  PVREA held its first meeting on November 30, 2005 at the Home Federal Bank South in Grand Island, Nebraska  There were 28 retired teachers present.  Since that time, our membership has grown, reaching 59 members.  It was decided to have 4 meetings in our association year, September to May.  PVREA accepts members from anywhere in Nebraska, primarily covering an area within an approximate radius of 50 miles of Grand Island.  We do try to serve all of central Nebraska.


     PVREA is Tri-Valley's only NSEA Retired Organization.  We encourage you to join us in this association!  Our dues are $10.00 a year.  Membership in PVREA is open to NSEA and NSEA-R members.  Associate membership is available to spouses and anyone interested in educational issues, with all rights except voting rights.
