The Local 1 Retiree Chapter has had a busy summer. In addition to the regular monthly meetings, the Chapter planned several trips. The July monthly meeting, held at the White Eagle Banquets in Niles, featured Emily Stuart from the Illinois Alliance of Retired Americans who brought us up to date on many issues facing seniors such has the Affordable Care Act, Social Security and Medicare. Information fact sheets from the meeting can be found above.
On June 20 the Local 1 Retiree Chapter traveled to Wisconsin for a leisurely boat trip on Lake Geneva. Enjoying lunch and camaraderie, 35 retiree members and guests spent an enjoyable afternoon cruising on the lake and shopping at local stores.
The next meeting of the Local 1 Retiree Chapter will take place August 14 at Porretta’s Banquets – 3718 N. Central Avenue in Chicago – starting at noon. The Chapter will be planning several activities in the fall such as apple picking in Michigan and an outing to the Drury Lane Theater.
As we get closer to the November election, the retirees will take an active role in electing politicians who promote the interests of retired and working families.
