IMPORTANT MCREA ANNOUNCEMENTS-Posted on January 11, 2017
- This special announcement is being posted to alert our MCREA members to the possibility that important messages may need to be communicated to you via this website (mccea.com/mcrea) at times that do not coincide with the regular publication dates of our MCREA News. Please tell your fellow MCREA members to do as you have just done — check these pages frequently, not just when you are expecting to find a newly published issue of the MCREA News.
- You are invited!! The newly formed MCREA LUNCH BUNCH group will be meeting at the Randolph Diner at Noon on February 8, 2017. Yes … for lunch! A plain, ordinary, just-for-the-fun-of-it LUNCH. Please let committee chair Elaine Goldfisher know that you plan to attend by sending her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org a week or so in advance. In that way – just in case it snows, Elaine can let you know if the gathering needs to be cancelled or rescheduled.
- FYI: Publication/Posting dates for upcoming issues of the MCREA News are: February 13, 2017 April 17, 2017 May 15, 2017 August 21, 2017
The MCREA Scholarship Application is now available! Click here to download the application.
