Those present – more than 300 – also celebrated PTA’s birthday, and honored our three founders as well as past and present PTA leaders. Free will donations were collected totaling more than $1,000 that will benefit the entire PTA community: unit, council, district, State and National PTA. Ninth District PTA uses these funds to organize new units and councils, and strengthen PTAs and PTSAs by offering training as often as possible.
