DELTA GOLDEN WINGS (DGW)
The fifth annual DGW Fly-in/Drive-in will be held May 16 at the Alexander Memorial Airport in Williamson, GA. Some of you have attended previous events and an open invitation is again extended to all Clipped Wings, Pioneers, and other Delta retirees and employees who wish to join the fun. The intent is to bring Delta people together, to reacquaint, and reminisce of times gone by and support the Candler Field Youth Program.
A $5.00 donation is requested to “Help Youth Achieve Their Dreams.” The Youth Program will have a burger lunch line at 12 Noon as a fund raiser. All proceeds from the event will support the Candler Field Youth Mentorship Program where young people learn to restore, maintain and fly airplanes.
Fly or drive your airplane or special car and we will place it on display for all to admire. But you don’t need an airplane or special car to participate…just come and join the fun! Guests are welcome! Mingle with old friends, visit the museum, or admire the cars and planes. Plan to stay for the day. We hope to see you!

INSURANCE TRUST FOR DELTA RETIREES (ITDR)
News for You, from your ITDR Trust Board August 2018 Newsletter:
ITDR Road Show Update
Thanks to all who have attended the Trust's Road Shows in past years. The feedback we've received is that they have been great events for our Atlanta-area Members to see old friends and get updates about their Trust Plan Benefits. We value the camaraderie, and appreciate that feedback as we look toward ways to continue to grow Trust Plan Membership.
We are making a change and suspending the Road Show for this fall. Instead, resources will be used to support other opportunities in various locations focused on increasing our visibility within the Delta community, and increasing the number of new retirees that choose to join the Trust when they become eligible.
The remainder of our enrollment schedule this fall will remain as in years past. Look for our postcard in September with a heads up about the mailing of annual enrollment kits and other benefits updates.
In October, the Trust will provide an online presentation and resources for all current and prospective Members to learn about 2019 benefits plan updates that will be covered in your annual enrollment materials.
As always, Health Advocate and the Retiree Service Center will be available to answer any questions you have about your benefit plans.
