Dates of existence
On December 9, 1971, a group of retired teachers in Regina, Saskatchewan met to discuss the organization of a Regina retired teachers group. The first president of the newly organized group, known as the Regina Superannuated Teachers’ Association, was Frederick W. Greenough. Charter members included Frederick W. Greenough, Avery A. McDowell, Jean Cocks, George McKenzie Taylor, Elwood Spicer, John Mitchell, Marguerite Robertson, Melba Stevenson and Reta Freethy. On October 10, 1973, the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan (STS) was organized and the local group became known as the Regina Chapter of the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan. Comprised of retired teachers, the Regina Chapter is dedicated to promoting the welfare of all superannuated teachers, discussing various issues and maintaining social connections with former colleagues. Social activities may include speakers, tours, picnics, banquets and tournaments. Members also do volunteer work in the local community.
Membership in the Regina Chapter of the STS was originally open to any superannuated teacher of Saskatchewan, wherever they resided. Membership was later modified to include anyone receiving or having received an allowance under the Saskatchewan Teacher’s Superannuation Act or the Saskatchewan Teachers Retirement Plan; memberships including surviving spouses and teachers who have retired under other provincial or federal plans and reside in Saskatchewan. The organization is run by an Executive and various communities; all positions are volunteer.
The Regina Chapter of the STS currently (2019) continues to operate in Regina with approximately 1900 members.
