Scholarship applications are now being accepted!

All necessary information for the 2017-18 academic year is now available on the SCHOLARSHIPS pages. It is highly recommended that those interested in applying first read the Operating Procedures if they are not familiar with the program.

See photos of recent events! There are photos of the September 7 IAC Ole Timers lunch, the November 4 tour of Tovrea Castle, the December 1 Christmas Dinner-Dance and the December 8 IAC Ole Timers lunch with list of attendees in photo order.

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.

NOTE: The phone number for Fix-It Guys East has changed to 480-820-9604.

Website Updates

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 new information on retiree clubs, senior discounts, (did you know there is 10% off at Safeway on the first Wednesday of each month?), 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 new 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 the list, or if you find something that needs correcting.

Join Us!

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.

Benefits of Membership

  • Eligibility to attend all HRSC events
  • Delivery of color PDF (with live links) or black-and-white paper† newsletter, The Bridge, nine times per year, which includes items not in the online sub-set Bridge, such as:
    • List of HRSC member email addresses (Updated from time to time)
    • List of new retirees (In each issue)
    • List of new HRSC members (In each issue)
    • List of retirees who have passed on (In each issue)
  • Ability to read downloaded PDF version or paper version offline, instead of having to be online to access website
  • Eligibility of children, grandchildren, etc., for a $1,000 (or more) scholarship at one of the three state universities
  • Eligibility to vote for HRSC officers and directors
  • Eligibility to serve as an HRSC officer or director
  • Eligibility for free services from the Fix-It Guys for yourself or surviving spouse
  • Occasional informational emails
  • Increased viability of HRSC for yourself and others

† 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.

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.
