Retiree’s Club Smart
Uniting Retirees: Connecting, Celebrating, and Staying Informed with Local Clubs
Within our jurisdiction, Sheet Metal Workers’ Local Union No. 18 takes great pride in fostering a sense of community and continued engagement among our retirees. We’ve established a series of retiree groups that are organized by location, creating a supportive network for those who’ve transitioned into retirement.
These retiree clubs provide a platform for our retired members to come together, not just as colleagues, but as friends. It’s a place where stories are shared, laughter is abundant, and cherished memories are created. The camaraderie among retirees is truly heartwarming, creating a bond that lasts a lifetime.
