Presidents Report
We have some good news for our members. At this time, it looks like we have met the 30 year funding so we can all hope that there will be no changes to the COLA for now. An explanation of the host program was given by Bernie Nance at our March meeting. It is a great program that helps the surviving spouse of our members with the difficulty of dealing with their loss. We have a Pickle Jar List that is available on our website in the benefits section. It has a lot of information that will help the surviving spouse with the final wishes of the deceased such as bank account numbers, life insurance policies, funeral arrangements and things we often do not like to think about. We know we like to think we are bulletproof, but all too quickly our life may end. Please take the time and sit down with your spouse and both fill out your pickle jar lists. Someday you will be glad you took the time.
As most of you know we continue to have problems with our Website. Al Allen and John Simkins have put a lot of time in trying to resolve the situation. It seems our provider’s whole system crashed. Al and John have been working to assure that we did not lose any information along with taking many calls from our members trying to find out why they could not access the website. Thanks to Al and John for getting us back up and running.
If you have not sent in your dues, PLEASE send them in as soon as possible. We are beginning work on the new rosters. The information in the roster comes from information you provide us with your application. We are trying to get the roster in print by August. We will have to have a cutoff date soon. If we do not have your updated paid application, your contact information will not be in the new roster. I would like to remind everyone that the rosters that we have on hand are the 2012 rosters. THEY ARE NOT THE NEW ONES !!!!
Our banquet committee has met to start working on the dinner. We have a new chairman, Bob Elfline, who has agreed to take over for Bob Foor. Bob Foor asked to be replaced as chairman, but has agreed to continue to help out. I have had some communication with Gary Wells from Local 67. Gary is planning for our upcoming meeting at Local 67 union hall in May. He is planning to attend our April meeting with the details. Thanks to Local 67 for sponsoring this event for the retirees.
Gary Church.
4 Unit President.
