The Panola County Retired School Employees Association met Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, at First United Methodist Church. President John Ray introduced the speaker, Dr. Joel Hill.

Dr. Hill has been serving East Texas since 1995. His chiropractic practices are located in Carthage and Henderson. He attended Parker University in Dallas, where he received his doctoral degree in 1991. Dr. Hill brought a few personal reflections for the New Year. He said he preferred the idea of New Year’s goals to New Year’s resolutions, saying that perhaps goals were more likely than resolutions to help people stay committed to what they wanted to accomplish for the year.

The next meeting of the group was planned for Thursday, Feb. 6, at the historic Esquire Theater for “An Afternoon at the Movies” to screen “The Theory of Everything.”
