The plan for Reunion 2014 is coming along very well. Here’s the scoop, five activities are in the works for your enjoyment:

What’s Up at Power Solutions?
We’ll gather at Corporate HQ for welcome, getting reunited, and to checkout some of the fantastic things going on at Power Solutions. Sound interesting?

Johnson Controls Today
Alex Molinaroli, CEO, is scheduled to give us an update on Johnson Controls. How’s that for opportunity? Alex has led the way in some major steps forward for the company. You’ll get to hear about it directly from him.

The Warren S. Johnson Society
At this our 25th anniversary, let’s review where the society has been and capture your ideas for the future.

Ambassadors of Lifelong Engagement
Let’s share experiences. Retirement has no script. Something you’ve done may be just what another member is after. We can help each other by sharing experiences.

As special demonstrations we have Dennis Miller and his robots and Scott Jamieson on astronomy. Their journey is as interesting as the demo. Ron Kuta on volunteering with the American Legion, Ron Kuchenreuther on sports activities, Paul Froehling, on hobby in genealogy, Lou Davit on crafts in creating a sustainable home, all have expressed interest in sharing experiences.

We need your help on this one. Would you like to lead a small discussion group? The idea is shared experience. You don’t need to be an expert.  Do you have experiences to share in financial planning, health & well-being in senior life, starting a business, working part time, care-giving, volunteering, travel, learning?  What have you found to be of most value to your life in retirement? How did you prepare for it? Would you like to share that?  Please contact Jude Anders (jra4128@gmail.com or, 414.351.1229).

Celebration/Dinner & Entertainment
The Italian Conference Center is our location of choice to gather with friends over good food and entertainment.

That’s a full day! It’s still a work in progress, but it’s shaping up just fine. We’ll keep you up to date here at WSJSociety.com/News as the plan develops. Also, look for the final details in the Fall Newsletter. For now, save the date and make your travel plans to be here.
