Meetings now at union hall

PHOENIX — Our retirees group moved from the Italian American Club in November and is meeting at the local 104 meeting hall. We are collaborating with the local on many community projects.

We are excited for many new and exciting changes in our group. We are partnering with HELP, an organization that advocates for the homeless, as well as Valley Life, a group that assists disabled adults. We also collect food for the food bank, and helped donate toys for the homeless children. We collect toiletries and supplies for a local homeless shelter. We are members of Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans to work for programs that affect our Arizona seniors.

The Teamster Retirees lost long time President Cliff Davis. He passed away in May and our current board of directors is dedicated to continuing with his mission of not only advocating for our retired Teamsters but using senior power to be a strong presence in our community and state. We also lost past President Chet Armstrong in September.

We reached out to our Kingman and Tucson retirees to bring them into our programs and they are very excited to grow their chapters.

The latest Holiday Season was very busy as we assisted the local holding a party for Teamster kids with Santa and Mrs. Clause, bounce houses, crafts, toys and food donated from Diana Johnsons catering.

Please note — Also includes divisions in Kingman and Tucson.
