Acting President’s Message

   We’ve had some wonderfully mild weather this past month and escaped the second worst snowstorm to hit NY City and most suburbs south of i-84. We even have fine walking weather forecasted for this coming week. Some members may be interested in a trip to the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA on 2/18 being run by Bill Hunt, a fellow Knight in St. Mary’s Council (see https://sites.google.com/site/mhvibmretireesclub/events/travel-trips) . That trip conflicts with our monthly meeting on the same date. If you go, please take some photos to share with those of us who can’t break away!

    On 2/13 St. Mary’s will be holding a Valentine’s Dinner/Dance (see https://sites.google.com/site/mhvibmretireesclub/events-in-mhv ). Kara and I plan to attend along with several other couples from our IBM Retirees Club. Come, join in on the fun.

    Yesterday, I happened to meet Wayne Delia, whom I referred to in our June 2015 meeting as an imminent retiree who could run our Club. IBM made him an offer that has kept him there up until now. He’s now eager to become an IBM retiree and is looking forward to meeting with us. Within IBM there is another “resource action” which is likely to increase the number of IBM Retirees locally. We will be welcoming them to join us.

    Our next meeting is on Thursday, 2/18, “17 Ways to leave Your Love-----ly Home (or “If I sell my house, where will I go) by Frances Chieu, Associate Real Estate Broker, Re/Max Center, 1820 New Hackensack Rd., (Rt. 376), Poughkeepsie. I look forward to seeing you then!


Edmund McKenna, Past President (2012-2014), currently 1st VP
