HRi recently donated items for gift bags in support of the Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County (TAAAC) "Celebrate Educators" event at Sandy Point State Park on Friday, August 22nd.

Richard K. Benfer, TAAAC President, says "400 or more TAAAC members kicked off the new school year. It seems that everyone enjoyed the outdoors, food, refreshments, prizes, games, and weater for the better part of the day. Some rain arrived as predicted, but it was gracious enough to hold off until the cleaning up was nearly done. Most of all, it was a truly effective way for all of us to get reacquainted before the pressures of the school year chews up the time and energy to socialize with like-minded friends and colleagues."

The main purposes for this picnic were to thank our county educators for their efforts throughout the year to educate county students and to provide our educators a positive start to the new 2014-2015 school year.

The TAAAC is an advocacy organization which exists to further the professional concerns, economic interest, human and civil rights of its members, and to promote equitable, quality education in Anne Arundel County Public Schools.
