Recover from the election by attending the second meeting of the Langlade County Retired Educators Association for the 2016-17 season. The LCREA will welcome Fred Berner, publisher of the Antigo Daily Journal, at its meeting on Thursday at Vickie and the Vets, 1216 Elm St.

Berner will discuss the fabled history of the Antigo Daily Journal, one of the few independent daily newspapers still in existence.

 Lunch will be served by Vickie at noon. Members will enjoy a chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cole slaw, roll and dessert.

The $11 cost of the luncheon includes tax and tip. Feel free to make a reservation by Tuesday morning if you have not been contacted by the calling committee, which includes Barb Arnold, 715 623-7197 , Judy Boyle, 715 623-6523, Ann Cornelius, 715 623-7946, and Nancy Whitman, 715 610-0312.
