I hope this email finds everyone doing well; we are excited about our June Retiree Meeting.

Not only are we looking forward to a fantastic luncheon we are going to have as our guest speaker Brother Ray Curry.  All our members pretty well know Brother Curry, he not only served us as our International Representative during our most difficult times during our plant closing he was there fighting and helping to secure the benefits we enjoy as retirees.
