As many retirees have heard, the NJREA 100th Anniversary Committee rescheduled its May 3 gala event for the safety and health of participants, as well as state regulations during the pandemic crisis. However, we still plan to celebrate, and it’s not too late for you to attend!

NJREA members can mark their calendars for Sunday, Oct. 4, from 12:30-4:30 p.m. to join us at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, where 500 NJREA members, NJEA staff and friends will gather to recognize our achievements over the last 100 years and salute more than 50 NJEA/NJREA members who are centenarians as well.

As promised, party-goers can expect fine food, live entertainment, a photo booth, and a gift of a commemorative frame. A memory book featuring photos and a historical retrospective of NJREA’s accomplishments on behalf of public education and its employees will be a must-see while you are there.

All members who sent in their reservations to attend the original spring event are considered confirmed and paid in full for Oct. 4, and nothing more needs to be done. However, if you need to cancel your reservation, contact Dianne Papadinec, NJREA treasurer, at no later than Aug. 1 to receive a refund. No refunds will be available after that date.

Any member who did not respond to attend the original event is welcome to join us on Oct. 4. All new reservations will be accepted until Aug. 1. Please use the RSVP card enclosed in the June NJREA Newsletter to join the celebration.
