Our History

Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees was established in 1937 for the purpose of uniting all retired public school retirees: Teachers, Support Personnel, and Administrators.  PASR is the largest retiree organization in the state of Pennsylvania and we are governed solely by school employees. Our local chapter provides opportunities to socialize, to enjoy educational programs, to travel, to receive legislative updates, to perform community service projects, and to present awards.

 

Please encourage membership so that we may further our service projects such as our Educational Enhancement Grants and outreach with social services.
