Happy New Year. Hope you had a great Holiday Season. Another year and decade is history and 2010 is here already. Remember to write 2010 on your checks and make your resolutions.

Our Christmas dinner/dance was one of the best we have ever had. Food was excellent and the music was great and many who attended had very favorable comments. Thanks to Al Boeck and Shirley Krieger for making all the arrangements that made for a very festive evening.

Our fall golf tournament had 50+ golfers who had to deal with rainy weather. Thanks to Dale for coordinating the outing. Don't forget the Spring Golf Tournament set for March 18th.

We have appointed a committee tasked with developing a slate of nominees to replace officers and directors whose terms expire in April. If you are interested or know of someone who would be willing to serve as an officer or board member, please call Al Boeck (623-566-5808), Shirley Krieger (602-942-4235) or Don Peeples (602-548-1904) .

Our events for the New Year begin with Day at The Races on Tuesday, January 26. On Tuesday, February 9 we will tour the Four Peaks Brewery. On Wednesday, March 10, we will dine at the Arizona Broadway Theater presentation of Cats. On March 29th we will attend a Spring Training Baseball Game between the Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres. Also on March 18th we have our Spring golf outing. Our annual meeting is scheduled for April 21st and our Spring Potluck is set for April 29th. Mark your calendars and plan to attend some or all of these events.

Its time again for your children, grand children or great-grandchildren, to get applications submitted for the Honeywell Retiree Club Scholarships at ASU, NAU and U of A. As before, application forms are available at each of the universities’ scholarship offices. Information on scholarships is also available on line at each of the universities’ web sites. We do not keep forms at HRC. Applications should be submitted by March 1st, except at U of A where the deadline is May 1st. The Honeywell Retiree Club Scholarships are for $1000. Awards are generally announced in May. The on-line addresses are:


NAU: - scroll to Honeywell

U of A: - Inquire at financial aid office.

The requirements for the scholarships are:

  1. Must be a family member of an active member (current dues paying) or associate member (spouse of deceased active member) of Allied Retiree Club or the Honeywell Retiree Club. Family members are defined as children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc. of the retiree. On all applications the submitter must include the company, division, year of retirement, and the current phone number of the retiree or associate.
  2. Only students that will be entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year are eligible.
  3. Students applying must have evidence of cumulative 3.0 or higher college grade point average.
  4. Applicants must re-apply annually.
  5. Receipt of this scholarship does not restrict the student from receiving other scholarships.
  6. Students majoring in Science and Technology related fields will be given preference, but if there are no applicants in related fields, then all majors will be considered. In the case of equal qualifications, financial need will be the deciding factor.

The evaluations of the applicants are done by each university’s Scholarship Office. Our only role in the selection process is to verify the applicant/retiree relationship.

  1. Start a regular exercise program: The importance of regular exercise, especially in older adults, can’t be stressed enough. In fact, exercise is the number one thing you can do to help improve health, fight off disease and maintain independence. Start slow and set a goal to work up to 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Regular exercise helps with mobility, blood pressure, glucose levels, memory, and over well-being.
  2. Learn your numbers: Know your ideal weight, cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose and how to achieve ideal goals.
  3. Strengthen your social networks: Older adults who have a strong social network are less likely to suffer from depression, cognitive decline, and even disability. It is recommended that older adults do volunteer work, join a club or pursue a new interest or hobby.
  4. Limit your alcohol intake: Experts recommend limiting alcohol intake to one drink per day for women and two for men. Older adults metabolize alcohol differently and are more sensitive to it than when they were younger. Alcohol stays in the system longer and has a stronger effect, particularly in the central nervous system, so it’s much easier to overdo it now than when you were younger. Many medications such as antidepressants, narcotics, barbiturates, antihistamines, aspirin, NSAIDS, acetaminophen, high blood pressure medications, diabetes medications, drugs for ulcers, drugs for gout, heart failure and blood thinners interact with alcohol. Avoid drinking alcohol if you will be driving, operating machinery, or caring for others.
  5. Monitor your medications and supplements: Make an accurate and complete medication list and have it checked out by your physician to make sure there are no drug/drug or drug/disease interactions. Always discuss any supplements or over-the counter medications that you take regularly with your doctor, as these can also cause interactions.

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.
