UPDATE July 2020

Dear brothers and sisters,

In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with Local 324, I regret to inform you that the events for the rest of the year for our Retiree’s Club have been canceled. Your health and safety is our top priority. The good news is the Board of Directors have agreed to waive your 2021 dues. FREE DUES.

Next year is our 50th anniversary; we are hoping to meet. Lunch will be free as we celebrate this milestone.

Further updates as follows:
• If you purchased a 2020 March luncheon ticket, and that luncheon was canceled, you may redeem it at the July 2021 luncheon.

• The 2020 Major Fundraiser will be carried over to 2021.

• The white elephant items collected will be donated to charity.

• The Brighton bag drawing was held at the June 17th board meeting and Mary Baca won the bag.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and loved ones.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, refer to our website or call me at 714-325-2847.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Lou Cruz – President
