The White Pine Chapter Retired Public Employees of Nevada (RPEN) is hosting its annual picnic on Aug. 8, at 11:30 a.m. in the McGill Park in McGill. The chapter will provide food, beverages, and table service. RPEN state personnel will be attending: President Jack Harris, Executive Director Terri Laird and past State President Hal Keaton. Guest officials will discuss the importance of membership participation and how the RPEN organization continues to fight against the forces who are after Nevada’s public employees retirement benefits that retirees worked hard for and the active employees working hard for future retirement benefits. Membership numbers will give strong support for the fight against these forces when the 2017 Nevada Legislature convenes. White Pine RPEN members may attend and bring non-RPEN members as guests.
