Ron Rygielski did not pass away; he is alive and well.

The recently distributed September Bridge incorrectly listed his name in the "In Memoriam" section. The Honeywell Retiree Social Club staff send their most sincere apologies to Ron and his wife for this distressing error.

Please pass this correction on to other retirees that you communicate with.

The Garrett retiree club has changed its name.
It's now called "Honeywell-Garrett Retirees Club of Arizona," or "Honeywell-Garrett Retirees Club," (no apostrophe), with an acronym of HGRC.

Our second event of the new club year is on October 23. It's our popular Oktoberfest. Follow this link for details.
Our third event of the new club year is on October 26.
It's the Verde Canyon railroad trip starting in Clarkdale, AZ. Follow this link for details, and click the EVENT SCHEDULE button at left to see information on other upcoming events.

Did your membership expire on April 30?
If so, please use the application/renewal form on this website or in your Bridge. If you are not sure, please check the cover email for your May eBridge, or the outside of your paper Bridge. If you no longer have these, just send an email to hotline@hrcaz.org and we'll be happy to check for you. Scholarship applications for your grandchildren or other relatives cannot be made if you are not an HRSC member.

The Board election result was a unanimous endorsement of the Board slate of candidates. The official start date for the new members was May 1, the beginning of HRSC's 2019-2020 fiscal year. See the new board on the Board Members page.

The Bridge

See photos of past events such as the October 17, 2018 Oktoberfest, (plus accordion video clip), the Dec 13, 2018 IAC Ole Timers Lunch the April 25, 2019 HRSC-AAC Spring Picnic, and the Sep 11, 2019 Ole Timers Lunch. There are also reports and photos for these and other events over the last year or so in the online Bridge.

Use back numbers of the eBridge and the 2014-onwards photo gallery (includes photos not in the eBridge) on the ARCHIVES page if you want to see older photos.

Website Updates

The ONLINE BRIDGE, a sub-set of the full Bridge, is updated following publication of each full Bridge. This includes the Scholarship Program Update  entry. The EVENT SCHEDULE is updated whenever new event information becomes available. The ARCHIVES page, updated at least monthly during the active part of the club year, contains a variety of recent and memory-lane items, including back issues of the online Bridge, photo galleries, minutes of board meetings and treasurer's reports. In addition to the program updates, the SCHOLARSHIPS page is typically updated during the month prior to each program year, i.e., November, with information for the coming year, such as the application form and program cycle timing.

Occasional updates are made to:
  • The USEFUL LINKS page, which has information on other Honeywell retiree clubs, senior discounts, medical & health (including resources to help with medical insurance problems) and genealogy, as well as a Honeywell dashboard with a variety of information about the company—financial news, general news and patents.
  • The PHOENIX AREA ATTRACTIONS page, which has information on a wide variety of local attractions—parks & preserves, spectator sports, performing arts, cultural history, museums, art galleries, and, of course "miscellaneous."
See the Site Map for an overview of all the information on this website.

Please let us know at
hotline@hrcaz.org if you have any suggestions for additions to any of these pages, or if you find something that needs correcting.

About Us

The Honeywell Retiree Social Club of Arizona (HRSC) extends a warm welcome to all Honeywell retirees who worked for Honeywell in the state of Arizona. This includes retirees from organizations that merged with Honeywell or were at one point part of Honeywell; for example, see the logos in the header above. Our purpose is to help you maintain contact with your retired Honeywell associates and to provide a variety of information and activities of interest.

To do this, HRSC provides many social activities so that friendships can be renewed and maintained on a regular basis. These include picnics, luncheons, horse race meetings, golf outings, tours, cruises, trips, and lecture/discussion meetings on a variety of subjects.

Many people have fond memories of interaction with their associates and loss of them is one of the drawbacks of retirement. We encourage all retirees to participate in these activities to renew, maintain and expand contact with people they have come to know well over the years and to form new friendships with others in the Honeywell family.

HRSC publishes a newsletter, The Bridge, 9 times a year, which is distributed to all members. Membership costs $5 per year, and the membership year ends on April 30. To join, fill out the Membership Application and send it to the address given. Please consider joining for two, three or five years by sending $10, $15 or $25 to reduce administrative work. This also reduces your postage costs and saves you having to remember each year. Several members have sent in $50 so they do not have to worry about it for ten years! Honeywellers who leave Arizona after retirement are welcome to join or continue membership and receive The Bridge.

The club is a social network of Honeywell retirees and as such does not deal with pension, health care or other benefits. Please direct these questions to the Honeywell Retirement Service Center at 1 800 526 0744 or honeywell.com/retiree.

It will facilitate effective communications between members, other Honeywell retiree clubs and Honeywell International, Inc.  It will provide opportunities to renew acquaintances and promote fellowship among retirees, and will assist retirees in maintaining and enhancing the image of Honeywell International, Inc., in the eyes of the public.

Scholarships for Retiree Family Members

The Honeywell & Honeywell-Garrett Retiree Clubs (HRSC & HGRC), in partnership with Honeywell Aerospace, sponsor annual scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to direct family descendants of active and deceased members of either HRSC or HGRC. Eligible students will be attending one of the three major state universities (ASU, NAU, UA). For details on eligibility, when to apply, award amounts, and whom to contact, look on the SCHOLARSHIPS page on this website and look for announcements in The Bridge.

Applications are accepted from December 1 to April 1.

Members are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation to this scholarship fund, which benefits not only the recipients, but also our USA workforce. Donation instructions are here.

Note that the structure of the scholarship organization was changed in 2015, creating a Scholarship Foundation, in order to ensure non-profit status; this is reflected in the Club Sponsored Programs section of the bylaws.

Display of Email Addresses

Per the website policy defined in the 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.
