If you are a retiree of Boeing or McDonnell/Douglas

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.
