May 26, 2006 - 7:00am EST

It has been a long time since my last communication and I sincerely apologize for that. I could start the list of excuses here, but I'll save you the tedium.

Toward the end of days at Boeing last summer, Jim Roberts from Local 673 came up with a brilliant idea. He suggested that keeping in touch would be made a little easier if there was a regular gathering that everyone would know about. Rather than setting up a formal reunion where halls, hotels or restaurants have to be booked, we should keep it simple.

His idea was to set aside the first Saturday in June as an open house, drop in if you want, at the Pearson Pub of the Econolodge Inn. Some of you may know this location better as the upstairs bar at the Avion Motor Hotel or the Celebrity Inn. It is on Airport Road, approx three kms south of the old plant.

I have spoken with the management of the bar and they will be expecting between 10 and 100 (or more) people to be dropping in on Saturday June 3rd from 2:00pm - 6:00pm. No need to confirm your attendance, just show up if you want to an can get away.

What you should do for sure though is spread the word to as many people as you can. Everyone is invited, including friends, spouses and families.

On a much more personal note I have a request. The phone number I had for Ron Messenger isn't getting me through to him. Does anyone know how to contact him?

That's it for now. Thanks for the great idea Jim! See as many of you at the Pearson on June 3rd

Have a safe happy spring/summer
