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. Be looking for a place to submit your own stories soon.


E-SYSTEMS/RAYTHEON RETIREES LUNCH GROUP

By Eileen Wahlstrom

March 25, 2020

For the first time any of us can remember, our monthly luncheon get-together was cancelled. I miss everyone and the fellowship.

Remember

Stay home, if you must go out please continue to practice social distancing of six feet and personal hygiene measures. Check in on your family, friends and neighbors, especially those who are elderly. Support local restaurants and food establishments by ordering delivery or curbside service. Follow the Library and Parks and Rec Facebook pages for fun stuff to do virtually.

Stay away from the virus of 2020

SICKNESS:

I am so relieved to say we have no reported virus cases in our group. Let’s keep it that way and take this seriously! If you feel sick, please isolate until you know what’s wrong. If you need anything, and that goes for everyone, reach out through email, Facebook, phone. We are in this together.

Chris Reynolds: Had her hip replacement surgery March 16th. Here is her latest update from Facebook.

“What a beautiful evening on the patio! Glass of wine (have been off pain pills since Sunday). Got the pool vac refurbished and cleaned the filter today. Wes shocked the pool (getting really green) and so much enjoying no more hip pain. Still walk weird as I learn to adjust to my new and improved joint, but light at the end of the tunnel. COVID19, be gone!! Praying that nightmare resolves itself soon.”

Sounds like she is sooo much better!

Bobby Gambrell: Carolyn had heart surgery recently and Bobby has been taking care of her.

Pat Bryner: Stroke March 12th. Is rehabbing with her daughters up north. You can send Pat a card at this address: 10845 Kingston Ave., Huntington Woods, MI 48070
