Welcome to the Eau Claire Retired Educators Association Blog

ECAREA is the organization for retired educators in the Chippewa Valley. We are a local unit of Wisconsin Retired Educators. WREA provides retirees with a full-time lobbyist whose main focus is retired teachers' issues. The priority of these items is determined by the a survey of all WREA members. We meet the first Monday of the month in October, November, December, February, March, April, May, and June. Our first meeting of each year is the last Monday in August. Be sure to check out the calendar of events. We offer food, friendship and fun.
