The George A. Ferrell Elementary PTAC will be hosting an open house to celebrate retiring faculty members, Carol Mordan, Dan Smith and Lynn Stola. The event will take place on Sunday, May 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Van Rensselaer Park in Picture Rocks.

An invitation is extended to anyone in the community who would like to visit with these teachers. They look forward to seeing former students, families and members of the community. There will be special “memory books” for each of the honored retirees so guests and students can write any personal notes, well wishes, memories, or stories. They also welcome any photos.
