Season's greetings!

2019 Christmas Message Wreath

As Christmas approaches and another year draws to a close, we look forward to spending time with loved ones, as well as happiness and prosperity in the upcoming new year. Our 6.3% pension indexing increase should help with that.

Times are slowly returning to a semblance of normality, however, the threat of a new wave looms on the horizon as RSV spreads in various areas of the country. Let us hope that this will not be as bad as some are predicting.

Fortunately, we were able to hold two in-person meetings this year and I thank those who attended for their interest and show of support. We look forward to more members joining us, not only for our Christmas Dinner Meeting but for future meetings in the new year.

On behalf of the executive members of the National Association of Federal Retirees Colchester-East Hants Branch NS72, I wish all members of our branch a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May we all find peace, happiness, and love in the company of those who mean the most to us.
