The Texas State  Retired Faculty and Staff Association ( RFSA) will have its third annual fall social at Dick’s Classic Car Museum, 120 Stagecoach Trail, on Sept. 24 starting at 5 p.m. Tickets are $20.

The event features a tour of the museum, a steak dinner, a drawing for door prizes and a silent auction. The evening will begin with a social at 5 p.m. The presentation of the RFSA’s second scholarship will take place at 6 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6:15 p.m. and a drawing for door prizes will follow. The silent auction will take place throughout the event.

Dick’s Classic Car museum’s 43,000-square-foot area exhibits 60 classic cars built from 1929-1959 collected by retired industrialist Dick Burdick.

“The social is a great time to reconnect with friends and help raise additional funds for the RFSA scholarship fund,” said RFSA President Marianne Reese.

Social Committee Chair Marian Loep said the organization is continuing to solicit sponsorships in order to raise more funds for the scholarship.

In the summer of 2006, a group of 15 retirees met to consider ways to improve communication between other retirees, as well as the university. From this meeting, the RFSA was born. Founding members adopted a constitution and elected officers at their meeting in 2008. By April of 2010, the organization’s membership swelled to more than 170.

The RFSA seeks to represent the more than 725 Texas State retirees and widowed spouses. Around 50 percent of the retirees live in San Marcos, with more than 80 percent living in Central Texas.
