SPRING POT LUCK LUNCHEON - TUESDAY APRIL 14
Your Honeywell Retirees Club will provide a delicious baked ham, 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. The ham will be served hot from roasters that will have been caringly heated by your HRC Board. 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.

ANNUAL MEETING - WEDNESDAY APRIL 29
CHRISTMAS DINNER / DANCE - THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3
The Sperry/Honeywell Retiree' Clubs agreed to again host the annual Holiday Dinner/Dance together, which allows both clubs to keep the cost reasonable during these difficult economic times. While the clubs did experience catering difficulties in 2008, it was not the Elk's fault. The Elks Management did everything possible to help make the party a success. Since then, the Elk's have hired their own Chef and are doing their own catering. Their new Chef previously worked for the Paradise Valley Resort and comes highly recommended.
We have reserved December 3, 2009 for the party at the Elk's, as well as reserving Joe Vacarro's Band once again. We will also have two buffet lines and attendees will be able to serve themselves, which will eliminate delays in serving the food.
Circle your calender for December 3. Tables can be reserved for 8 or 10. Get your friends together and reserve a table. Menu and Price are in the planning stage and will be printed in the April issue of THE BRIDGE.
