About Us

The Retired Employees of Cherry Creek Schools (RECCS)


We are a group of retired employees from Cherry Creek Schools.  This group is for all retirees from all employee groups.


We are a group that keeps in touch with old friends and makes new ones.


All of our activities, donations and RECCS U class costs are used for college scholarships for Cherry Creek District seniors.  Every year we give over 10-$3000 scholarships.    

We also do a variety of activities throughout the year from; excursions to exciting venues, ball games, or just get together and enjoy each others company.  

We also offer RECCS U classes throughout the year to provide anyone inexpensive classes that are interesting to our retirees.  This program raises money for many scholarships.  


In addition, we have 3 meetings a year.  

  • The September meeting is our fall luncheon.  We get together have a silent auction to raise money for the scholarships, enjoy lunch and socialize with other members. This is a great time to renew your membership!  

  • In January we have our annual breakfast meeting.  

  • In May we have our scholarship presentation.  This event is a favorite to see all the scholarship recipients and hear their unique stories.    


Please join us and share your energy and your talents. Keep in touch with old friends and make new ones.  Upcoming events are posted on the upcoming events Page, so keep your calendars handy!
