HONEYWELL/SPERRY DAY AT THE RACES - JANUARY 26
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.

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.
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.
