DELTA RETIREE ORGANIZATIONS
EVENTS
DELTA CLIPPED WINGS, INC. (DCW)
On March 22, 2019 Delta Air Lines Clipped Wings, a 501(c)(3) organization, will host its annual charity event to support the following three charities:
1) CURE Childhood Cancer ~ an organization dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through research, education, and support of patients and their families.
2) Atlanta Humane Society’s Free Pet Adoption for Veterans ~ a program initiated by the Atlanta Humane Society to thank Veterans for their service by providing free adoptions to them.
3) The Breast Cancer Research Foundation ~ an organization dedicated to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer by providing critical funding to leading medical centers worldwide for research and increasing public awareness about good breast health. A minimum of 85 cents of every dollar donated goes to these programs.
Our fundraiser will include a silent auction and a raffle featuring products and services donated by our community business supporters. Each donation will be displayed and identified during our event, acknowledged in our monthly newsletter to our 770+ members, and supported by a tax-deductible receipt.
We are asking for your donation of products and/or services to assist us in maximizing our contributions to these charities. Cash donations (checks) should be made out to “Delta Clipped Wings.”
Our success is based on the generosity and support of the business community. All proceeds from this event will go to the above-named charities. Your consideration and contribution are greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

The 2019 FLY-IN/DRIVE-IN is sponsored by Delta Golden Wings along with the Candler Field Museum in support of the Candler Field Youth Aviation Program and to foster the camaraderie of Delta pilots, Clipped Wings, Pioneers, and friends and perpetuate the memory and vision of Capt. Ron Alexander. 
Cost is $10 per person. The event begins at 10:30AM. Coffee and donuts available. Lunch served by the Youth Aviation Program at 12PM. Lunch proceeds to benefit the Candler Field Youth Aviation Program.
Barnstormer's Grille will be available for your lunch and dinner needs.
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 and make new ones, 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.
