Newsletter of the

Honeywell Retiree Social Club of Arizona

NOTE: This online version is a reformatted (e.g., buttons at left removed to improve readability, and all event information together following other items) sub-set of the full version sent to paid-up members, with updates to event information since the Bridge was distributed.

For example, it does not contain names of recent retirees, new members, or members who have passed away, nor does it contain the list of member email addresses which is sent out from time to time.

There will typically be a delay of a week or so before a new month's version is posted here—if you want to get the Bridge as it comes off the press, become a member and request the full-color PDF version, the eBridge, which is sent by email and can be received wherever you may be, unlike the paper version. Note that Honeywell outsources the distribution of the black-and-white paper Bridge. It is typically delivered one to two weeks after the PDF eBridge is delivered by email, so apart from news being a little old, members receiving only the paper copy may miss out on first come, first served signup for upcoming events.

Display of Email Addresses

Per the website policy defined in the HRSC Bylaws, the "mailto:" feature of email address links, that generates a draft email when clicked, is not used with personal email addresses—only with general addresses such as Hotline@hrcaz.org or Bridge_Editor@hrcaz.org. This restriction only applies to the website, and thus this online Bridgeit does not apply to the PDF eBridge, since that is not publicly available and cannot be crawled by email address harvesters.

President's Perspective

Mary Barkl

Welcome back! We hope you are all doing well. The pandemic is still upon us but things do look better than the last few months have looked. It continues to look like we still have a waiting period before all this is over and done with.

The HRSC Board met the last week in September and we addressed several items. We will continue to meet through our physical year 2020-2021 and bring you a Bridge every month. We hope you will find it keeps us kind -of- connected.

We are always looking for new members and would like to connect with the people you know who are still working for Honeywell or may have retired recently. PLEASE LET US KNOW! Honeywell no longer provides the retiree clubs with a list of new retirees. If you know of anyone who has recently retired, please encourage them to join HRSC so they can take advantage of the upcoming events and start receiving the monthly Bridge newsletter. A membership also entitles members’ descendants to apply for scholarships. The membership fee is only $5.00 per year which is a great value for the benefits received.

We have even BETTER NEWS for new members! Due to the fact that most of the events were cancelled in 2020, the Board has voted to extend membership expiration dates by one year for new members this year, as well as continuing members. In all cases, if they join between now and April 30, 2021, their first $5.00 will take them through April 30, 2022. If you pay for multiple years in advance, they will also be extended by one year. For further clarification, your new expiration date will be provided when you receive your first Bridge newsletter.

We talked about where we go from here and investigated the virtual tour idea. There are MANY possibilities. We intend to start featuring one each month and are providing more information in this month’s Bridge. When it’s possible and safe, we will continue events for more than 10 people.

For now, please continue to be safe and take care of yourselves.
If any of you have burning questions or comments, feel free to call or write me.

From the Editor

The Br

When mailing items to the HRSC treasurer, please ensure that you address the envelope using the full name of the club, i.e. Honeywell Retiree Social Club, so it goes to the proper location. Some people just put HRSC on the envelope and it ends up in HR which slows down the process.


•  A variety of information for members can be found on the HRSC website hrcaz.org. Just click the menu buttons at the left of most pages.  One of these is a link to the “Event Schedule” so you can review upcoming events that you may be interested in attending.

•  In addition to upcoming events, accessing the above website will also provide additional Honeywell-related information.  Click on the “Useful Links” button, then select “Jump to Honeywell Dashboard” at the top of the page.

•  Please address any comments or questions about The Bridge to the editor at the HRSC email address Bridge_Editor@hrcaz.org or Honeywell Retiree Social Club, 1860 W.  Rose Garden Lane, Phoenix, AZ 85027-2704. 

Bits and Pieces


The Bridge

The Bridge FYI - Due to COVID-19, the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) has extended the deadline to apply for the Arizona Travel ID from October 1, 2020 to October 1, 2021. As a result, if you have not already applied for the new ID, your current identification (i.e. driver’s license) will continue to be acceptable for domestic travel until that time.

As a reminder, the Arizona Travel ID is the credential that complies with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. It is available as both a driver license and identification card. There is a gold star embedded in the card to show that the cardholder has provided added proof of identification to ensure the license or ID meets strict federal requirements.

Note: Rules for international travel are unchanged, and a valid passport or equivalent will be required to travel outside the United States.

Article Submitted by John Long

TheArticle Submitted by Vic Nelson I went to work for GE in early 1965. I was initially assigned to diagnose/repair circuit boards in the factory. At that time GE had come by a deserted grade school in paradise valley and decided to make a GE computer school. This was really neat as they had all sorts of classes and GE was always happy to sign you up for another. I attended many electronics repair and several others. The one class which was really to change my life was programming. I was flabbergasted by a machine whose function was determined by the contents of it's memory rather than it's wiring and components. I got a job programming for the factories’ purchasing system. I learned database programming (made more difficult by the fact that the COBOL compiler with which the database stuff could do it's thing wasn't done yet!). We ended up using the 400 MAP assembly program with a user written thing we called the IDS-MAP translator. IDS and the growth of the factory in the 70's and 80's were the "glory days" of my career. I was laid off in 2007 and so, retired. Life has been wonderful as a retiree but I do miss work so at times. In 2014 I married Charlsie Bader, former manager of the tape library. I was essentially working for her as the company was dying and I guess I was sorta used to it and went full time. It's been a ball tho - we winter in Winterhaven Ca (Yuma) and summer in Spokane WA where we share a large house with the kids. This works great as we have someone to watch the home while we are away. This trip back and forth, (1750 miles each way in a 40 foot bus pulling a small car) is driven by Charlsie and it's impressive to see this little bitty woman wrestle this bus in some of the fierce winds in the high California and Oregon mountains.

Honeywell Clubs Fix-It Guys Program

Sponsored by the Honeywell Retiree Social Club, Honeywell-Garrett and Aero Activities Retiree Clubs

Gary Kains is the coordinator for the Fix-It-Guys program. Our purpose is to help club members and/or surviving spouses who may need assistance with handyman-type repairs and will appreciate saving some money. Currently there are seven Fix-It- Guys and Gary Kains, the coordinator. If you have such a need, call Gary at (480) 835-6060 to schedule a trip to your home. If you reach voice mail, please leave a message giving your name, phone number, description of the job, and nearest cross streets. We will get back with you to schedule a visit. We provide the labor at no cost to you, and you furnish the cost of the materials.

Help Wanted Are You Handy?

Your clubs really need your help!

We're Hiring!!

You don't have to be a contractor-level kind of handyman—just generally handy around the house. Some of you may have special skills (Computer/Plumbing/Electrical/Drywall?) that can significantly help our members in need, and you will be reimbursed for your travel. Why not try it? Please call Gary Kains, (480-835-6060) if interested. We would love to talk with you!

The table below lists our current Fix-It Guys Team.

Thanks guys—for all that you do!

PumpkinGhost   O C T O B E R   PumpkinGhost

Since we are still living in the midst of a global pandemic, we won’t need ghosts and goblins to scare us this Halloween! It’s still in the 100s here in Phoenix even though the calendar says it is officially Fall so we won’t be getting out our sweaters any time soon. Of course, you can find pumpkin flavored everything to get you in the mood for Fall when it finally arrives.

As always, we hope everyone is staying safe, well and keeping busy with personal and household projects while we stay at home. Jigsaw puzzles, anyone??!!

April 1st is the deadline for application submission this academic year so be sure you get our information to your student in a timely manner. We have updated our on-line application submission process so please visit the Scholarship web page at www.hrcaz.org to be sure you have the newest information. Here are the criteria:

The B
  • •  
    You must be 50+ years of age and a paid-up member of the Honeywell Retiree Social Club or Honeywell-Garrett Retiree Club.

    •  Do you have a college student in your family who is your descendant (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and/or great-great grandchildren)?

    •  Are they currently enrolled at Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University or the University of Arizona as either an undergraduate or graduate student?

    •  Are they maintaining a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) or better?

The B
If you can answer yes to all of the above, then your college student is eligible for a scholarship from the Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Foundation. This means FREE MONEY $$$ for your student to aid them with their college expenses, help them achieve their goals in life and become productive members of the community and society. These funds are available to our students through the generous contributions of our retiree club members and Honeywell. The scholarships usually range in value from $500-$1,500 per academic year, depending on total donations.

As promised last month, we are featuring more scholarship recipients in this newsletter.
The Bridge

The Bridge



  • The Scholarship Program is qualified as a 501(c)(3) so donations should be tax deductible on your state and federal returns (check with your tax advisor).
  • We live in a global economy.  The ability of the United States to maintain its leadership role in the world, and the resulting benefits which accrue to us as citizens, demand an educated workforce as well as educated citizens and voters.
  • Supporting education by donating to scholarships is in your own interest!  When you donate money to our scholarship fund, think of it as paying it forward by investing in a student’s future.
  • By helping someone afford a college education, you are raising their salary potential and hence the tax base. This is a good thing for everyone - better roads, better schools, better teachers, more doctors just to name a few.
  • Successful, well run communities attract more investment. Not to mention more folks with jobs paying into Social Security and Medicare which is something all retirees are interested in preserving.
  • Giving makes you feel good, strengthens personal values and shows your children and grandchildren what you care about.
  • Best of all, giving to the Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Foundation means every cent is used for scholarships.

Please review your charitable contributions and seriously consider adding this Scholarship Program to your list of worthy causes.

If you would like to donate at any time throughout our fiscal year, please make your check payable to:  Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Foundation.

You can mail your check, together with the form below, (or linked here), to either of:

1 PM at the Edelweiss Biergarten 2625 E Bell Rd

Report from Mary Barkl:

The Octoberfest was enjoyed by all.  Lots of good food and many take-home boxes for a late dinner I suppose.  Leigh Dechaine provided our entertainment and was fabulous! He added some extra entertainment by teaching us some new songs which got the crowd going.  The area for lunch was set up so unique, like a very long family table, so there was no need for an Ice Breaker.  Friends were made quickly.  We had five door prize winners and two $27 winners who played 50/50.    Everyone went away satisfied.  The Edelweiss had a large pig outside behind the restaurant. No he was not next week’s dinner, just a pet.
