For the first time, BCEA proudly participated in and was a sponsor of the Bergen County Senior Citizens Annual Picnic, on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at Van Saun Park, in Paramus. This was the 50th anniversary of the picnic. This sponsorship was an exciting joint venture between the active and retired members of our Association, we engaged thousands of Bergen County seniors at our display table. We had many enthusiastic and meaningful conversations about the strength of Bergen County’s public schools and the invaluable impact our members have in the lives of our students. Thank You to the BCEA Public Relations/PRIDE Committee who helped spearhead this great outreach and Thank You to all those who were able to volunteer.
