A group of retired educators met with County Commission chairman, Dusty Zeigler, for the purpose of declaring Nov. 1 as Georgia Retired Educator’s Day.


Whereas the governor of the state of Georgia has proclaimed the day of Sunday Nov. 1, 2009 as Retired Educators Day in Georgia; and

Whereas there are more than 82,000 retired educators in Georgia; and

Whereas The retired educators of Georgia donate thousands of hours of volunteer service and make invaluable contributions to the welfare of their respective communities across the state; and,

Whereas it is appropriate that a day be designated for citizens to express their appreciation for the contributions that retired educators have made and continue to make to the betterment of human lives and society in general; and

Whereas local churches will recognize the lasting contributions made by retired educators in this community;

Now Therefore, I, C.D. Zeigler, Chairman of the Effingham County Board of Commissioners do hereby proclaim the day of Nov. 1, 2009 as “Retired Educators Day” and I call upon the citizens of Effingham County to observe that day in an appropriate manner honoring retired educators.
