Club Tours and Trips
The club had two outings in 2018. The first one we toured the USS Iowa Battleship and Museum in San Pedro Harbor. This was a wonderful experience especially for those who did not serve in the military or who have never been on a Navy ship. They now have a little understanding of cramped quarters.
In June the Retirees Club took a field trip to Justice Brothers Racing Museum in Duarte, California. It is a terrific place to go to see the evolution of motor sports. Founded in 1985, the Museum has a wide variety of vintage racecars, racing motorcycles, street rods, Indy cars from past and present, dragsters and restored classic Fords and other cars from the late 20’s and 30’s. The team at Justice Brothers has used their experience to develop and formulate products for engine oil and fuel additives, transmissions and specialty lubricants. They had two buildings to tour with about 10 members present. After the tour, most of the members went to lunch at a restaurant in Monrovia.
In late spring of 2019, the club is planning a trip to Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum at the Pomona Fairgrounds. Additional information for this field trip will be discussed and provided at a later date. If you are interested, please let us know.

The club is still working on merging and updating our old and new mailing lists so we can continue mailing newsletters to the retirees at least once a year (fall/winter) and sometimes we are able to mail a spring letter.
For the last two years, the club has done most of its communication by E-mail (RetireesClubIBEWLocal11@gmail.com). It’s cost effective and convenient. One of our goals is to help retirees keep a little bit informed with what is happening in the Local and the club. When you are retired, the only communication that you receive is “The Electrical Worker” newsletter from the International Office and the occasional letters from the various health/benefits office. If you did not get this newsletter electronically, please send us your E-mail address so we can add you to our E-mail list. Or if you only received the newsletter by E-mail please send us your mailing address. If you know a retired electrician who is not a member of our club or on our E-mail or mailing list, please forward and share the Emails and letters with them.
If you look at your address label on this newsletter, you will find when your dues are paid through. If you have not paid your annual dues please fill out the form and send dues in. Would you also check the label for correctness and let us know of changes that are needed. Thank You!
