A large red-and-white banner was hung across the front of the Welcome Center in Bardstown Friday morning to celebrate Kentucky Retired Teachers Week, Oct. 20-26.
Representatives of the Nelson County Retired Teachers Association and City Commissioner John Royalty were on hand for the event.
Established in 1957, the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association is the largest group of former teachers in the state, and its purpose is to look out for their welfare.
Mike Yaden, president of the Nelson County group, said the income of retired teachers in this county alone is $14 million, which contributes to the local economy. Margaret Sims, district membership chair, said in a statement that retired teachers provide valuable services to the community in diverse leadership roles.
