As of January 1, 2013, all Cleveland District Sheet Metal retirees automatically became members of the Cleveland District Retirees’ Club. THERE ARE NO DUES TO PAY! You and your spouse/friend are welcome to attend any of our meetings which are held on the first Wednesday of each month. The majority of our meetings are held at the union hall. You will be notified ahead of time if the meeting is not being held at the union hall.
Our “regular” Meetings are scheduled for 1:00pm. We serve refreshments of coffee, donuts and pizza. The doors open at 11:30am.
Our “luncheon” meetings are scheduled for 12:00 noon with doors opening at 11:00am. The luncheon is at no cost to you or your spouse/friend, but we do need an RSVP if you plan to attend the luncheon. If there are other guests that may attend a luncheon with you, there will be a charge for their meal. Our monthly meeting follows the luncheon.
At all of our meetings we have several “games” that you are able to participate in.
We collect an attendance pot of $1.00 per person attending the monthly meeting. Each person receives a ticket for their dollar and all of these funds are awarded by a random drawing to members or their spouse/friend at that month’s meeting. One ticket per person. The tickets are limited to club members and their spouse/friend. Extra guests may not participate in this drawing.
We also have a monthly 60/40 drawing. The cost is $1.00 for one ticket or $5.00 for six tickets. You may purchase as many of these tickets as you want. The winner(s) receive 60% of the monies collected and the club receives 40% of the monies. Everyone attending the meeting may participate in the 60/40 drawing.
The last thing we collect for is the Ohio Lottery. Any amount of $1.00 or more may be put into the lottery pot. A list is kept of those people participating and the amount that they put in the pot. These monies are divided throughout the month and Ohio Lottery tickets are purchased on behalf of the people that put into the pot that month. Any large winning amounts will be divided among the people that participated that month. So far the club has not had any large winning amounts! Anyone attending the meeting is welcome to put into the lottery pot.
The Retirees’ Club also has other activities during the year. There are two casino bus trips during the year, usually in April and October. We have two breakfast get-togethers each year, usually in March and October. These activities are in addition to our monthly meetings. Any suggestions for new activities are welcome!
A yearly calender of events will be mailed to all members in December listing the events for the following year. These events may change but you will have an idea of what the club will be doing. This listing of events can also be found on this website.
The Retirees’ Club will be sending all retirees a quarterly newsletter with an up-to-date listing of activities . This newsletter will contain the dates and times of the meetings, luncheons and other activities. The newsletter will also have a section for the RSVP’s that you will need to attend the scheduled luncheons/events. Just fill it out and follow the instructions printed on it. This will give the club a good idea of how many members to expect so we are able to provide enough food or refreshments for everyone. You MUST RSVP to be able to have a meal at a luncheon.
Since we are in Northeast Ohio, we sometimes have an issue with the weather. If you think the monthly meeting or activity may be canceled, you need to call the union hall at 216-267-1645. Someone in the office will know before 9:30am if the meeting/activity has been canceled.
If you have any questions or concerns about the Retirees’ Club, please feel free to give us a call. President, Dave Gaeta, may be reached at 440-888-0904. Secretary, Pat Miller, or Treasurer, Duane Miller, can be reached at 330-273-2145. Vice President, Joe Stastny, may be reached at 216-406-2450. If no one answers the number you have tried, please be sure to leave your name and phone number so they are able to call you back. Please speak slowly and clearly when you leave your name and phone number.
This club is for all Cleveland District Sheet Metal retirees. Come and join us for some fun and fellowship! We hope to see you soon!
