In the 40 plus years of our existence, the OSP Retiree's Association has charged $1 per month / $12 per year for membership.  How do we spend your dollar? The PDF below provides an overview of our expenses for 2018 from President Bob Booker and Treasurer Brenda Collins.  The Association sponsors a number of events, reducing the cost of these events for our members that wish to attend.  Also, Board members work for free, putting in many hours of volunteer time to reduce administrative cost.  Thanks to all who have served on the board over our long history!
