A photo by Anne Okonek of Cornell has been selected for the cover and the March page of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE) 2019 calendar. The photo is shown above. Approximately 300,000 NARFE members nationwide received the calendar, with 12 monthly photos selected from submissions by members. Okonek has been a member of NARFE Chapter 1900 since she retired from the Forest Service three years ago. “The best retirement advice I received was from a fellow Forest Service retiree who told me to be sure to join NARFE,” Okonek said. NARFE is the only organization that advocates for federal retirees to protect their earned benefits, she added. NARFE Chapter 1900 includes members from the Marquette, Escanaba, Rapid River, Houghton, Hancock and Ontonagon areas. Chapter 1900 meets the fourth Wednesday of each month except December, usually at the Marquette Senior Center. For additional information about the chapter, call 906-475-0362.
