SPERRY/HONEYWELL DAY AT THE RACES - FEBRUARY 14
January flew by and here we are already in February. A big thank you to Vic Fragnito for chairing the tour of the Arizona Science Center. HRC shared the day with 500 students who were all very eager to experiment with the educational displays. What a great learning experience for them, as well as us.
The Arizona Broadway Theater (Singin’ in the Rain) sponsored by SRC was a great success. The food was excellent and enjoyed by many retirees from both clubs. In February, HRC will sponsor two events. Sign up for Turf Paradise February 14 and the Computer Fraud and ID Theft Seminar February 21. In March we will have four events. Check the Calendar of Events and plan to attend.
We would like to post early photographs in the Bridge of retirees when they were employed and offer an opportunity for everyone to “Guess Who”. We will only borrow them and they will be returned to you by the Bridge Editor.
Nominations are still open for new Board members, as well as committee chairs. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please contact the co-chairs, Tom Turner, 480 502 1986, or Harry Heller, 623 3632 2159. It is only a commitment of one meeting a month for a couple of hours. Lot’s of fun, too.
If you have a child, grandchild, or great grand child attending college, be sure to make them aware of the Honeywell/Garrett scholarship program at the three Arizona Universities. It is open to students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year. Students applying must have a 3.0 or higher grade point average. The scholarships are for $1000.00 at each university, so be sure to consider it.

Pictures from 2011 Annual Meeting
Honeywell and Sperry Retirees enjoyed a great mean followed by a spectacular presentation of “Singin’ in the Rain” at the Arizona Broadway Theatre. And believe it or not, it really did rain on stage.
28 People visited the Arizona Science Center. This was an unstructured visit so everybody just went off to see whatever interested them. It was a busy morning at the Science Center with about 500 school children also visiting on the same day. We did manage to catch 8 of the visitors in the lobby and get a picture. Not shown in the picture is Shirley Peeples who volunteered to take the picture.
