Stephanie’s presentation is designed to educate parents, grandparents, and professionals about teen and adult drug use. The most up to date information is shared on local and national trends, what drug use may look like, as well as how to recognize the paraphernalia and concealment of drugs. Effective prevention strategies, such as delaying the onset of alcohol use in the teen years or monitoring medicine, kitchen and garage cabinets in the home are discussed. The theme of the presentation is that drug use is not only an individual problem for the user/addict; it is a problem that effects the entire community. The “bigger picture” of drug use and the impact on the community is identified, with the goal being to decrease use and fatalities (risk) through education and awareness.
March is here already and since Easter will occur before you receive your next Bridge, Happy Easter.

When making your reservation, please have the AGA handicap available. If you do not do this, we will have to use CALLOWAY to determine handicap.
If you do not have a foursome, they will be randomly filled in. Make checks [non-refundable] payable to the “Honeywell Retiree Club” and send to Dale at the address below. Please respond ASAP as we are committed for 90 – 100 players.

Your Honeywell Retirees Club will provide hamburgers, chicken burgers, brats, rolls, coffee, tea and water. Plates, utensils, condiments, etc. will also be provided. Attendees are asked to bring a covered dish to share: hot casserole, baked beans, salad or dessert of your choice. Get out your favorite recipes and prepare your specialty to share with others. You may bring your own beer (we have a beer permit) or soft drinks if you would like, but no glass containers are allowed in the park.
Forty two people went on the Casino Trip. There were 3 big winners, one for $1000, one for $700, and one for $600. Everybody had a great time and are ready to go again.
Twenty four people went on the tour of the Four Peaks Brewery. We started out with snacks consisting of hot wings, lavosh bread with an avocado cheese dip and a beer of our choice. This was followed by a tour of facility which has expanded over the years to meet the higher demand for their products. They are also expanding into another room which was previously a carpentry shop and gives them enough space to install several very large fermentation tanks. They have also recently added equipment to provide their beers in aluminum cans. Their most popular beer is their award winning Kilt Lifter. After the tour, we had our “Light” meal and another beer of our choice. Nobody went away hungry.

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.
