Treasurer charged with taking PTA money for vacation—to Sandusky, Ohio?

After sending the kids back to college, running a booth at the Decatur Book Festival, switching editors for my next book, and, oh, yeah, writing, I’m just trying to keep up with this stuff. But I had to include this tidbit, especially because the funds were used for such a … modest end.


CARRICK, Pa. — A woman is facing charges after police said she stole money from a Carrick elementary school’s parent-teacher association and used it to go on vacation.

Investigators said the PTA treasurer at Concord Elementary School stole $6,000. Officials said the money was intended to be used for student field trips.

Police said Cathy Weinmann used the cash to pay a cellphone bill, take a trip to Sandusky, Ohio, pay for turnpike tolls and for food at Sam’s Club.

Weinmann faces theft charges.
