See photos of recent events! There are photos of the December 1 Christmas Dinner-Dance, the December 8 IAC Ole Timers lunch with list of attendees in photo order, the January 20 Tovrea Castle tour, the January 26 Southwest Airlines maintenance hangar tour, the February 11 Tovrea Castle tour, and the February 14 Day at the Races.
Use the 2014-onwards photo gallery on the ARCHIVES page if you want to see older photos and all the photos for each event rather than those in the Bridge, which may be only a selection.
It's that time of year again—dues need to be received by April 30 if your membership expires in 2017. (If you are unsure of when your membership expires, check a recently-received eBridge email, or the mailing wrapper on a recently-received paper Bridge. If all else fails, send an email to email@example.com.)
Use the Membership Application form for renewals, but only fill out name, date, payment amount and any changes. Multi-year renewals are recommended so you do not have to remember every year, or waste time and money mailing in a check every year. It also helps to reduce the work load of the volunteer staff who serve you.
The ONLINE BRIDGE, a sub-set of the full Bridge, is updated following publication of each full Bridge, and 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.
The USEFUL LINKS page has information on other Honeywell retiree clubs, senior discounts, 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions for additions to the list, or if you find something that needs correcting.
These are the kinds of activities that HRSC has:
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
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.
† The paper Bridge is sent out by Honeywell, who outsource the task. It is typically delivered about two weeks after the eBridge, so apart from getting news late, you may miss out on events with first come, first served signup.
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.
