Steelworkers group invites retirees

| Friday, March 13, 2015, 1:21 a.m.

SOAR retirees welcome

SOAR — Steelworks Organization of Active Retires.

Where are (the retirees)? There must be hundreds if not thousands of you out there!

We meet on the first Tuesday of every month. We have coffee and doughnuts and (the organization) informs us about Social Security, insurance and other items that should interest all of us.

After working with people you saw every day for the past 30 or 40 years, wouldn't you like to see them again? Or not ... meet new people your age?

The dues are $1.25 a month, but you can come to a couple meetings just to see if you like it first. I worked for over 40 years at Irvin Works, both in the mill and later in the office. I met a lot of good people over that time. I do not think they just all moved south; there must be a few up here.

Come up to the meeting, see if you like it, it's only for a couple of hours on the first Tuesday of the month at 1 p.m. at Steelworks Union Hall No. 2227 just up the road from where the Fisher Body plant once stood.

You do not have to had worked at any U.S. Steel plants; anyone retired can be part of the SOAR group no matter were you have worked.

Thank you for your time and we all hope to see you next Tuesday.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
