Our monthly luncheons have resumed!
We had a good crowd for our first time back. Our new location is The Golden Corral, just a stone’s throw away from the old Furr’s location in Garland.
First Time: 6

Yvonne McGregor - Yvonne McGregor fell and broke her hip mid September 2020. Caregiver found her on the floor when she came in on Monday morning. She had a partial hip replacement at Medical City in Plano. She was moved to a rehab facility. She is now in an assisted living home and has dementia.
from Vicky Carlson
Pat Bryner: Stroke March 12th 2020. Is rehabbing with her daughters up north. Helen Hull spoke with her and she is doing really well. We sent Pat a card to let her know we were thinking about her.
We lost several fellow retiree friends since the last time we met. In their memory here is a list. If I have left anyone’s name out please let me know and I will add it next month. Thanks.

Darrell Lancaster proposed an idea to create a repository for retirees’ experiences and funny/interesting stories that later can be compiled into a collection and available for all to enjoy. We don’t want to lose these memories. Marv worked hard to create/activate a link for us to view these stories. After consulting with Raytheon External Communications a few guidelines were put in place including a password to access the stories. There are several there for your enjoyment already. Keep sending them in!
