AZ BROADWAY THEATRE, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25
Location: Arizona Broadway Theatre, 7701 W. Paradise Ln., Peoria, AZ 85382, 623-776-8400.
Singin’ in the Rain
Based on one of the most celebrated and beloved films of all time starring the inimitable Gene Kelly, Singin’ in the Rain is set in 1920’s Hollywood during the waning days of the silent film era. This zany, light-hearted romantic comedy focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, his sidekick Cosmo Brown, aspiring actress Kathy Selden, and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, who’s less-than-appealing vocal tones make her an unlikely candidate for stardom in talking pictures. You will want to kick your feet up as you’re transported to yesteryear in this dazzling production.
ARIZONA SCIENCE CENTER TRIP - FRIDAY, JANUARY 27
We are planning a trip to the Arizona Science Center. As a group we receive a special reduced rate for admission to the museum. Additional shows, such as the IMAX require an additional admission fee. We will meet on the inside entrance ramp of the center. Look for Victor’s Honeywell sign.
A very Happy New Year to all Honeywell Retiree’s. The Honeywell Board of Directors and Committee Members are looking forward to a very exciting 2012.
In January we will have a tour of the Arizona Science Center chaired by Vic Fragnito. We will also share an event with SRC, at the Arizona Broadway Theater: Singin’ in the Rain.

Mark your calendar for February 21 to attend the Identity Theft and Fraud Seminar chaired by Nadine Arney.

In March many retirees will be on a round trip Princess Cruise from Los Angeles to Hawaii. This event is chaired by Barbara Rippstein. Also in March we will be attending a Spring Training Baseball Game and will have our Spring Pot Luck Luncheon.
