Photos Of LAX Summer Luncheon

     Photos of the LAX Club's Granada Hills Luncheon are now available for viewing.   Apologies to those who were there and the photographers did not capture your image.

LAX Club Officer Positions Available

     We are still looking for a replacement for club officer retirees.   We still need a President and 1st Vice President.   The main duties are to arrange the club's get-togethers; by contacting facilities we usually do business with, or scouting out new locations.   The 1st VP is the leader of securing a few gift items that we use as door prices at our Luncheons.

 

     Just announced, our current treasurer, Mori Morrison would like to turn over the books to someone else.   Mori has been our treasurer for 11 years.   Besides handling all money in and out, this position requires that the treasurer also keep the data base on all members.   This position prepares the mailing envelopes (but not the newsletter) for the Newsletter's distribution, four times a year.

 

     The main retiree club, and all local branches, follow IRS guidlines as a non-profit organization.   And, we are not allowed to exist without a president and/or treasurer.   To insure that this club remains active we need someone located in the main Los Angeles area to be President (and arrange for local restaurants or banquet hall Luncheons) and a Treasurer.

 

     This is serious.   Our friendships are just too strong to allow all we enjoy with this club to disappear.

AA Pass Policy Now Permanent

     AA President Doug Parker, again, told the retirees of AA (not TWA or U S Airways) that the new pass policy is non-changeable.   Retirees can use space available transportation boarding after active employees, just the way it has always been at TW and US.  

 

     Before the merger, all AA pass riders used the same classification for non-business travel.   And, for the past year plus, all sorts of AA retiree groups have been picketing AA functions nationwide, sending out surveys, as well as bombarding AA management with e-mails.   All this "carrying-on" will now stop, as Doug Parker addressed this issue for a final time.

TWA LAX Hanger Memories Are Removed ... Sent To Kansas City

     Several members of our club joined other TWA Retiree Groups on May 04 for the final TWA Hanger Clean Up.

 

     The "tear down, pack up, clean up and load up" sadly removed the last signs of TWA from our LAX Hanger.

 

     Everything is now at the TWA Museum in Kansas City.

 

     Soon the hanger will be completely torn down.

TWA Ambassadors LAX was the majority in attandance at LAS AGM.

     Since LAX is so close to LAS, it came as no surprize that the majority of attendees at this years AGM (Annual General Meeting) was from Los Angeles.   Photos can be viewed by clicking on OUR WORLDWIDE CLUB on the left column.
