Last month The Bridge posted the January passing of Joe Schneider; it was brought to our attention that we had two Joe Schneider's who retired from Honeywell in Arizona. We would like to inform you that the Joe who passed in January worked at the HON 002 Division and lived in Waddell. Joe from Scottsdale who worked at 19th Ave. and Deer Valley is still alive and kicking. Please accept our apologies for this error on last month’s memorial report. Thank You!
HRC sponsored programs and events where payments are required in advance, refunds will be provided anytime there is no cost to our Club. We will make every effort to provide refunds when requested, however in some cases funds have been committed by the HRC and will not be refunded.
Fix it Guys
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. 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.
Honeywell/Garrett Retirees’ Scholarship Program
The Honeywell Retiree’s Club (HRC), the Garrett Retiree’s Club (GRC), along with Honeywell Aerospace, provides the opportunity for students to apply for one of several $1000 scholarships each year. These scholarships are open to students enrolled in any of the three State Universities. While we generally award three scholarships (one to each school), last year we were able to award scholarships to five students!
Although the window for applications has closed, you should know that your Scholarships Program team is still working: Vetted applications from each school will be sent to the Club to be further reviewed. Award decisions will be made during April after which candidates will be notified by the Scholarship Program Chair, Dawn Orgill. Checks will be mailed in May to the schools and the funds deposited into each successful student’s school account.
The Honeywell Retiree’s Club (HRC) and Garrett Retiree’s Club (GRC) are proud to sponsor this effort to reward our children/grandchildren for their good studies and focus for the future.
All applicants, meeting the above criteria, may apply. Course of study should be technically oriented, but all applications will be considered. Awards should be made before the beginning of the 2014 fall semester.
Your Club contacts for this
are for HRC, Dawn Orgill (602) 881-7772

Butterfly Wonderland Trip
Twenty-one people gathered in Scottsdale to tour the Butterfly Wonderland on Tuesday, March 4. After a short greeting and orientation from tour guide Adriane Grimaldi, the group watched a short 3-D movie on the Monarch butterfly and it’s migration from Central Mexico to Canada and their return each year. One interesting fact we found out is the Monarch butterfly doesn’t live any longer than 2 weeks!
After the movie everyone went into the emergence gallery where they could witness a butterfly hatching from its cocoon, then moved into the butterfly conservatory where more than 2500 butterflies were in ‘residence.’ After looking at the many and beautiful butterflies and taking MANY photographs, the group could tour the bee extravaganza and ant colony and then visit the aquarium and possibly pet the sting rays.
Those who wanted then drove over to Talking Stick Resort to have lunch. All in all, everyone had a good day seeing something possibly none of us have ever witnessed before in our lives. Thanks to all those who joined us. And look for a possible trip to the salt water aquarium which is due to be completed in Fall 2015.
