City of Norfolk Retired Employees Association

History

The City of Norfolk Retired Employees Association has an extensive history of service to its members. Records indicate the first official meeting of the Association was held on September 28, 1973 at the YWCA on Freemason Street in downtown Norfolk.

There were 22 retirees in attendance at this meeting. Officers were elected and by-laws were subsequently approved. The location for the meetings has changed; however, the Association has continued to meet monthly.
