Retirees Club

Are you a recent retiree or will be retiring soon? If so, join the Retirees Club.

In the late 1970’s, former UFCW Local 1459 President Dick Abdow established our Retiree’s Club with a small group that has grown throughout the years.

Members have enjoyed the camaraderie of their coworkers and made a new group of friends with whom they have much in common. They enjoyed monthly day trips, overnighters to such places as Newport, RI, Lake Champlain, New York City, Atlantic City, Pennsylvania Dutch country, a 2-week trip to Florida and even a cruise to the Caribbean.

The Club meets at the Local Union office on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:30 AM. The club coordinator is Peg Picard. Following refreshments, they begin the meeting with discussions of the affairs of the Club, perhaps listen to a guest speaker, plan upcoming trips, acknowledgment of birthdays etc. At noon, the retirees are off to lunch at a local restaurant.

Throughout one’s tenure as an employee, good friendships and relations are developed and because you retire doesn’t mean you can’t keep these friendships strong.

Accordingly, our Retiree’s Club cordially invites you to join us. For more information, please contact Peg at UFCW Local 1459’s office.
