Welcome to Spokane Area Retired Educators 2021 – 2022
The mission of SAREA is to strengthen bonds of friendship among retired educators, to encourage continued interest in education, to promote the general welfare of retired educators, to work toward improved retirement legislation, and to take an active part in civic affairs.
SAREA supports non-profit organizations within our community. Grants are available to support educators within our area to better meet the needs of their students. Scholarships for future educators are granted yearly. The PAWS Scholarships are specifically for hard-working students in need.
At the present time we have canceled all in-person SAREA General meetings but will be available online through ZOOM. Our Holiday Luncheon has been canceled due to the pandemic. Hopefully we can resume General Meetings and the Scholarship Luncheon in the spring. We will continue to update you with newsletters, postcards and the website regarding events that will be available on ZOOM or in-person.
