Honeywell Retiree Club Survey
We need your feedback! In previous years we used a survey that was passed out at the Annual Meeting. The results of that survey were useful but may not have been representative of the views of all members. This year we are initiating a survey distributed to the entire membership. It is designed to help us decide what activities or events you are likely to attend. Please participate. The HRC Board needs your feedback on the type of activities that interest our club membership.
Fill out the survey at http://hrcaz.org/Survey.

ANNUAL MEETING, THURSDAY, APRIL 28
Pictures from 2010 Annual Meeting
Our annual meeting is April 28 at the Bellaire Golf Club Iron Works from 9:00 to 11:00 am. This will be our final event for this year. We will start events again in September 2011. At the annual meeting you can vote for next year’s officers and directors, enjoy a good breakfast and hear a presentation by Tim Mahoney, President and CEO of Honeywell Aerospace.
I have enjoyed the last several years as a member of the Board and this year as your President. Your Board and Staff have been very involved in planning HRC events and sharing many events with the Sperry Retiree Club. I want to thank them for their hard work and dedication. If you have a chance at the annual meeting you may want to thank them also. HRC Board and staff include:
Harry Heller: Past President
We have a few very important issues to focus on in the fall and we need your help:
1. Please respond to the HRC Retiree Survey that is included in this issue of The Bridge. This survey will help your Board plan the fall events that are important to the majority of the membership. To have a successful retiree club, we need retiree participation. You can either send in the survey form from THE BRIDGE or complete the survey on line at http://hrcaz.org/survey
2. Volunteer to help committees as your time allows. It is not much work and it is fun to work with some of your previous co-workers. Think about running for the Board in 2012. We need your help.
Hope to see you at the Annual Meeting and future activities in the fall.
Remember, happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Being socially isolated may be just as dangerous as obesity or smoking.This was among the findings of researchers who reviewed 148 studies that compared participants’ frequency of social interaction with their health over an average of 7.5 years. Strong relationships with family, friends and coworkers increased likelihood of survival by 50%. To live longer:
