WILTON — Five representatives of the Franklin County Retired Educators recently met at the Goodspeed Public Library to make a difference for Wilton families. The group washed windows, cleaned the bathroom, tables, workspaces and almost all the bookshelves. The project involved moving the books, washing and drying the shelves, then replacing the books in the correct order.

FCRE will also donate the remaining $55 from National Education Association — Retired for the Day of Caring Grant for books in the library’s Children’s Room. The books will be shared with other retired educators at a future county meeting.

Robin Bragg arranged the project. Other FCRE members who participated were Jean Mitchell, past president; Ann Yorks, in-coming president; Doris Tripp and Arline Amos.

This project was the third MEA-R Day of Caring project undertaken by the FCRE. In the past they have read weekly to students at Strong Elementary School and provided materials for the new Mallett School library in Farmington. If other education-related organizations wish to have help in the future from the FCRE, they may contact any member of the organization.
