Our Mission -

  • Showing a presence for Retired Public Employees
  • Supporting our Executive Board and Standing Committees

The Northern Region RPEA members will continue to meet at Fairbank’s Raven Landing Community Center at noon on the third Thursday of each month between September 2017 and May 2018, except for December 2017. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and and members can pay at the door, i.e. $15.00 in cash or by check written to RPEA, for lunch. We are intending to simplify the collection of payment for lunch by having you pay as you arrive at the door. The menu will be determined by  Raven Landing.
