RTVOS Service Project Completed!

We worked again on January 8 to complete this project to paint many rooms of an underfunded public school in a low income area. Many thanks to all the HRSC volunteers who worked on this worthy project—you made a difference to the students!

Website Updates

The ONLINE BRIDGE, a sub-set of the full Bridge, is updated following publication of each full Bridge. This includes the SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM UPDATE  entry. The EVENT SCHEDULE is also updated when new event information becomes available. The ARCHIVES page, updated at least monthly during the active part of the club year, contains a variety of memory-lane items, including back issues of the online Bridge, photo galleries, minutes of board meetings and treasurer's reports. In addition to the program updates, the SCHOLARSHIPS page is typically updated during the month prior to each program year, i.e., November.

Occasional updates are made to:
  • The USEFUL LINKS page, which has information on other Honeywell retiree clubs, senior discounts (updated February 2018), medical & health and genealogy, as well as a Honeywell dashboard with a variety of information about the company—financial news, general news and patents.
  • The PHOENIX AREA ATTRACTIONS page, which has information on a wide variety of local attractions—parks & preserves, spectator sports, performing arts, cultural history, museums, art galleries, and, of course "miscellaneous."
Please let us know at hotline@hrcaz.org if you have any suggestions for additions to any of these pages, or if you find something that needs correcting.

About Us

The Honeywell Retiree Social Club of Arizona (HRSC) extends a warm welcome to all Honeywell retirees who worked for Honeywell in the state of Arizona. Our purpose is to help you maintain contact with your retired Honeywell associates and to provide a variety of information and activities of interest.

To do this, HRSC provides many social activities so that friendships can be renewed and maintained on a regular basis. These include picnics, luncheons, horse race meetings, golf outings, tours, cruises, trips, and lecture/discussion meetings on a variety of subjects.

Many people have fond memories of interaction with their associates and loss of them is one of the drawbacks of retirement. We encourage all retirees to participate in these activities to renew, maintain and expand contact with people they have come to know well over the years and to form new friendships with others in the Honeywell family.

All retirees from Honeywell are eligible for membership and invited to join. This includes retirees from organizations that merged with Honeywell or were at one point part of Honeywell.

HRSC publishes a newsletter, The Bridge, 9 times a year, which is distributed to all members. Membership costs $5 per year, and the membership year ends on April 30. To join, fill out the Membership Application and send it to the address given. Please consider joining for two, three or five years by sending $10, $15 or $25 to reduce administrative work—several members have sent in $50 so they do not have to worry about it for ten years! Honeywellers who leave Arizona after retirement are welcome to join or continue membership and receive The Bridge.

The club is a social network of Honeywell retirees and as such does not deal with pension, health care or other benefits. Please direct these questions to the Honeywell Retirement Service Center at 1 800 526 0744 or honeywell.com/retiree.

HRSC Mission Statement

HRSC is a social organization in Arizona for Honeywell International, Inc. retirees. This organization will be open without regard to prior class of employment, race, creed, sex or geographical residence.

HRSC will provide program activities, programs (such as Fix-It Guys and Scholarship Program) and projects of interest to retirees and spouses. It will facilitate effective communications between members, other Honeywell retiree clubs and Honeywell International, Inc.  It will provide opportunities to renew acquaintances and promote fellowship among retirees, and will assist retirees in maintaining and enhancing the image of Honeywell International, Inc., in the eyes of the public.

Scholarships for Retiree Family Members

The Honeywell & Garrett Retiree Clubs (HRSC & GRC), in partnership with Honeywell Aerospace, sponsor annual scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to direct family descendants of active and deceased members of either HRSC or GRC. Eligible students will be attending one of the three major state universities (ASU, NAU, UA). For details on eligibility, when to apply, award amounts, and whom to contact, look on the SCHOLARSHIPS page on this website and look for announcements in The Bridge.

Applications are accepted from December 1 to April 1.

Note that the structure of the scholarship organization was changed in 2015, creating a Scholarship Foundation, in order to ensure non-profit status; this is reflected in the Club Sponsored Programs section of the bylaws.
