Welcome to the Carbon Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees which is
comprised of 278 retired members who were employed at one of five following school districts:
Jim Thorpe Area, Lehighton Area, Palmerton Area, Panther Valley Area, Weatherly Area,
plus the Carbon County Career and Technical Institute and the Carbon Lehigh Intermediate
Unit #21; or the retirees who are Carbon County residents who were employed by
public school districts outside of the Carbon County area.

Carbon Chapter joins with Berks, Lehigh, Northampton and Schuylkill Chapters to make up
Region 2 of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees. Our members are former school teachers, administrators, counselors,
nurses, secretaries, aides, cafeteria workers, bookkeepers, business managers, bus drivers and maintenance staff.

Carbon Chapter of PASR is meeting the needs of former co-workers and friends, raising money for scholarships, visiting members
in nursing homes, doing volunteer work in the community, and lobbying state legislators on issues of importance to school retirees.

If you are not a member of Carbon chapter or of our state association won't you please join us?

PASR Mission: To serve others in need and help one another enjoy retirement.

We are waiting for you!

Message from Your President


“ Education is a way of life, no, education is life” A quote I read during a PBS TV program. Sorry, I don’t know the author,
but I do know the truth of it. As President of Carbon County’s Chapter of PASR, I have seen school personnel spent their
retirement time still living the education through libraries,charities, military families, the sick, the elderly, the jobless,
government, travel and even sharing lunches and adventures with each other, too. Since 2012, when Marjorie Balliet
invited me to join PASR with a penmanship perfect letter-I have been a part of an organization that astounds me with
the vitality and energy put forth to make life better for everyone. Please join our group, “your group” for a Tuesday lunch.
No requirements, just re-newing that “Teachers’ Lounge kind of lunch together atmosphere.

Guaranteed: No end of lunch bell will ring.

Sincerely,
Molly Phillips, Carbon County PASR President

Social Service Projects

Throughout the year, members are remembered with birthday cards, holiday cards, and cards for special circumstances. Birthday flowers are, delivered to members 90 and above. Visits, phone calls, a helping hand, and donations of money and meals are some of the acts of kindness that benefit chapter members with special needs, those who are confined, or may have had surgery.

Spreading holiday cheer is always the goal of our members through social services, as they visit, deliver poinsettias, and sing Christmas carols with our special needs and 90 and above members.

Won't you please help spread joy to those who are celebrating 90 or above birthday with a card or phone call?

Community Service Projects & Events

2017 Fall Opportunities


Having been a member of PASR since 2012, I have learned that our members’ hearts are huge, their generosity knows no bounds. As volunteers, our members, continue to give of themselves, of their time, and of their talents. Unfortunately, even though we continue to give to our fellow residents of Carbon County, needs still exist, even grow.
In 2017, we will continue to volunteer our efforts to make Carbon County better. If you know of anyone who is in need whom we can help, please let us know. If there is a project or event that could use helping hands, inform us. We will get the word out to the membership. From individual efforts to chapter projects, we help, we support, and we make a difference.
