Greetings from the Retiree Presidents desk.

As most of you well know I have been laid up awhile having total hip replacement on March 23. I am doing very well and on the mend, hope to see you all in May. I wish to thank you all for the many phone calls and cards, your concern meant so much. The Retiree Chapter went to Windsor casino raceway on March 21 and all had a good time. The turn out for the April meeting was good and a lot of the snowbirds are not back yet. I wish to thank Barb Shaifer and Walt Gerber for holding down the fort and all who assisted in making things go smoothly. On May 14, 2001 the local will be holding a special election for the office of Financial Secretary, due to the resigning of Dan Shepherd who will be retiring. I wish to take this opportunity to thank Dan for all the help he gave the retirees, you will be greatly missed. So come early and vote. Also for the May meeting bring a dish to pass, table setting and the chapter will furnish the meat. Hope to see all of you in May take care.

In solidarity
Sharon McMurray
Retiree President
