Re:        Retiree Banquet/Benevolent Fund/General Update

Dear Retirees:

Its time to mark your calendars for the 2012 Retirement Party & BBQ to be held Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 6:00 PM! Again this year, it will be at the VFW #8787 Building. They are located at 500 VFW Road which is off the I-35 frontage rd. between Braker and Yager Lanes off exit 243. Directions: From the South: off I-35 take exit 243, stay on frontage road through the light at Braker Ln., then turn right on VFW Road. From the North: off I-35 take exit 243, turn left on Braker Ln., turn left on the frontage road, then turn right on VFW Road. ARFFA (The Austin Retired Fire Fighters Association) will have a booth and banner there to have a chance to visit with everyone. A flyer is attached outlining the program and our recent retirees to be honored at the event. If anyone needs a ride to the BBQ event, please contact Delbert Cain at (512) 489-2397 and accommodations will try to be made.

Since our last update as of December 2011 we have lost the following firefighters or widows:

The 2011 annual report will be distributed to the membership later this year. Anyone interested in receiving their copy via e-mail instead of receiving a hard copy sent through USPS may do so by notifying the pension staff at

We hope you are all doing well and we hope to see many of you at the BBQ!
