Trout lodge occurred
October 5-8 2015. The weekend was enjoyed by 63 SAGES and the weather cooperated. Yes this was another memorable and
successful SAGES event and more are expected to attend in 2016.
If you are a retiree of Boeing or McDonnell/Douglas
and like to have fun, the SAGES is for you.
We are the SAGES Retiree Club and have been organized since 1981 to provide retirees of Boeing
and McDonnell/Douglas with opportunities to socialize, enjoy recreation and travel with other retiree teammates, who all have
something in common.
There are no meetings, but we do provide three luncheons, a Dinner Dance, a Picnic
and three fun filled days at the YMCA Trout Lodge each year. And, if your interested in travel; we encourage members
to sponsor travel tours each year by bus, ship, train or plane.
Our club is open to all pensioned FEP and CBU
retirees of any division of Boeing in the metro St. Louis area.
The cost is only $12 per year per couple and as members you save on the costs of the social events.
if you attend all seven of the social events, you would save more than the $12.
Members receive six Sages Pages newsletter each year informing them of the social and travel
events. A Sages Directory of all the members is available by request.
We also perform
volunteer work for a number of local organizations as individuals or large groups.
Our club is managed by a fifteen member Executive Board, (which includes six Officers and nine
members of the Board of Governors), who meet monthly.
For additional information drop a line to President, MDC/Boeing Retirees Club,
P. O. Box 413, St. Charles, MO 63302. Or you can submit a question to e-mail address email@example.com or to the e-mail address at the bottom of this home page.
With a membership of 600+,
we could have more members volunteer for the various charitable functions. We have a group of members who
volunteer regularly but "MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK".
Every 2 months the Red
Cross conducts Blood Drives at several Boeing, St Louis, buildings. Volunteers spend about 5 hours greeting the donors and
serving them after donation.
If you would be willing
to give a little of your time to volunteer, call Joan Wilmas at 636-300-1641 or Helen Bassen at 636-754-2651. Joan is our Red
Cross coordinator and Helen is our Holiday Brass coordinator.
Each of our social events
requires Chairs and Co-Chairs who organize and host the event.
If you are willing to
help at any of these events contact Dave Ott, Activities Chairman, at 636-916-0099.
