General Chapter Information

The Saginaw County Chapter of MARSP has approximately 960 members and is located in eastern Michigan.

The Saginaw County Association of Retired School Personnel has six meetings per year along with a holiday season celebration. They are a large, involved, vibrant group. Meetings consisted of insurance information on alternatives (Priority Health, etc.), keeping safe from falls, ladies Barbershop Quartet at the holiday celebration, celebration of Black History, “ID Protect Program”, annual business meeting, and singers presenting “A Sentimental Journey Down Memory Lane”.

They are involved in the community to a great degree with giving scholarships to area youth, donating to a shelter care program, the Neighborhood House along with assisting at the East Side Soup Kitchen. They are also involved with the Learn to Swim Program, Restoration Community Outreach Men’s Mission and the First Choice Program. Members are encouraged to donate to eleven listed agencies in their membership directory.

They have a goal to get the name out (SCARSP/MARSP) and make it meaningful in the community. They also have a great group of volunteers who also have some strong leadership qualities. SCARSP had an interesting meeting schedule. They started out the meeting with a social hour, membership activities, book exchange, and benefits information. They then hold their business meeting, invocation, luncheon and finally the program for that meeting. They also put out an informative, well written newsletter to the membership.
