AARTA HISTORY

The Alliance Area Retired Teachers Association (AARTA) began October 23, 1948 when an assembly of eleven retired teachers met at Mabel Hartzell's home to form this society.

The AARTA mission is to support legislation that will benefit educators and to provide volunteer service for community agencies.

This philosophy, imbued with the founding teachers' positive beliefs and futuristic attitudes remains a benchmark for the Alliance Area Retired Teachers Association.
