Thank you Retirees

Joan Firmery retired many years ago from teaching FACS in the South Huntington
School District. However, she undoubtedly will promote FACS for the rest of her life!

•    She is the treasurer for the New York State affiliate of AAFCS as well as treasurer for The South Huntington Retired Teacher’s Association.
•    Joan is a member of the Textiles Committee at the historic Sagtikos Manor.
•    She volunteers at Old Bethpage Village sewing and restoring historic costumes as well rejuvenating interior textiles in the village homes.
•    Joan is the volunteer seamstress doing clothing repair at a nearby nursing home.
•    Her church can count on her whenever they need a volunteer. Her cookies, and muffins sell immediately at the bake sales!

As a lifetime member, Joan is an amazing role model!

Many LIFACS Teachers continue to give back to our profession and communities. This month we would like to highlight the accomplishments of Joan Firmery.
