ALZHEIMER’S SEIMINAR - THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19
Just because you are having trouble remembering where you left your cup of coffee or your car keys doesn’t mean you have Alzheimer's or dementia. We all forget things as we get older. Many older people have a slight loss of memory that does not affect their daily lives. But memory loss that gets worse may mean that you have dementia.
Dementia is a loss of mental skills that affects your daily life. It can cause problems with your memory and how well you can think and plan . Have you ever thought that you or a loved one might have Alzheimer's disease? Scary thought isn’t it. However, Alzheimer's is one of about 60 different forms of dementia.
We have invited a speaker from Hospice of the Valley to provide information concerning these illnesses. Please feel free to invite family and friends.

SPONSORED BY THE HONEYWELL & SPERRY RETIREE CLUBS
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.
Please contact the phone number above if you would like to volunteer as a Fix-It Guy or Gal.
FALL GOLF TOURNAMENT, DECEMBER 8
Seventy players participated in the HRC fall golf outing at Sun City Country Club. The weather was beautiful, the course challenging, and everyone had a wonderful time.
The following players won $21 for skillful shots during the tournament:
Next Tournament (Spring), we will again use established handicaps (AGA) and Calloway (only those that do not have handicaps). This should equalize play and give us more ways to be fair in scoring. By the way, we gave out 29 awards totaling $481 which gave us 41% participation in award monies.
We hope to have 100+ players next time at the Sun City Country Club in April. We again offer invitations to play to Honeywell, Sperrywell, Signalwell, Garrettwell, and any of the other Well’s out there.
Have a safe and enjoyable winter, and we will be looking forward to seeing you all at the spring tournament.
We hope everyone enjoyed the get together. If you have any questions or suggestions, please call Dale W. at 480-922-1402.
