Retirees Chapter 2023 ~ May & June Update


Greetings once again to the membership:


At our April meeting we had Carmen Alpaerts from Jeanny's Angels give our group an update on Carmen's work helping the homeless in and around London.

We voted on and donated $100 to help Carmen in her generous work with London's Homeless.

Donations by our membership of new blankets, backpacks, diapers, cup of soup, socks, personal hygiene items, mitts, hats and scarves (men, women and children) would be greatly appreciated. The executive will make sure any donated items reach Jeanny's Angels.

After Carmen's presentation the executive announced that the membership can bring in donations at any meeting, not just Christmas. The executive will make sure any donated items reach Jeanny's Angels.

Speaker: To be determined


The precautions to ensure everyone’s safety from Covid 19 will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.

  • We will be asking the membership to monitor their own health and NOT attend meetings if they feel ill.

  • We will ask members with compromised health to seriously consider if they feel the risk of Covid justifies their attendance.

  • We will be making available a small supply of N95 masks for those members who wish to attend but who may feel their health places them at higher-than-normal risk or who have fear of infecting a spouse or grandchildren.

  • We will continue to monitor and observe suggestions from the Middlesex-London Health Unit and our Local 27 executive.


We will send out reminders towards the middle and the end of May

Please remember to RSVP your intention to attend the meeting and/or stay for lunch.


Hope to see you all June 7th

Till then, stay safe


Your Executive
