Fall is almost upon us along with the start of HRC’s new programs and events.  HRC is active from September to May each year.  The HRC Board of Directors has tried to put some very interesting events together for 2010-2011. Please review them in The Bridge and plan to participate.

Sept 21 is the Fall Baseball Game: Diamondbacks vs Colorado Rockies. Don Peeples still has discounted tickets available. Give him a call for reservations.  Oktoberfest promises to be lots of fun with time to visit friends and good food. In November we will once again bring you a seminar on Medicare updates. Circle Nov 2 on your calendar.  Ann Marie Grande from the Area Agency on Aging will be the keynote speaker.  We have scheduled extra time for Q&A’s.  The Christmas Party has a new venue this year and will be held at the Arrowhead Country Club on December 2. Get your friends together and reserve a table. Committees from both HRC and SRC have put a lot of planning into making this one the best yet.

We are still trying to get as many retirees as possible to receive The Bridge via e-mail.  If you do receive The Bridge via e-mail and also a hard copy, help us reduce mailing costs by calling Francis Cartwright 623-492-0200 and canceling your USPS copy. If you want to receive The Bridge electronically visit our website www.hrcaz.org and click on Bridge. You will receive the Bridge in color and more quickly than by US Mail.

Our Board Committees are also looking for suggestions on what you would like to see planned as events for this year. They work very hard in planning and conducting activities and are open for your ideas.  Call me at 602-942-4235 with any suggestions for an event you would like to participate in. As your President, I am open to suggestions on how HRC can better serve you.  We need to increase retiree participation at our events if we want to continue having a strong retiree club.  

Hope to see you at the upcoming programs and activities.

We can help Honeywell retirees or surviving spouses with fix-it jobs around the house that you are not good at or are unable to do and prevent these jobs from becoming budget busters. The Fixit Guys are Bob, Dick, Gene, Sam, Perry, Matt, Paul, Ed and Clint.

Call us at this number, (602) 765-4466, and leave a clear message containing job information, your name and telephone number. We probably can help and will get back to you as quickly as practical. We furnish the labor at no cost to you; you furnish the cost of the parts.

The above 8 guys and I are getting older.  Getting under that sink or cramped down to get that electrical outlet is a bit more difficult.  We do about sixty (60) jobs in a year and wouldn't you like to help?  Call the above number if you choose to participate in all our GLORY.  Thank you, Clint Langford.
