The Retirees Club of District 837 is one of the largest and most active retiree clubs in the IAM. The purpose of this page is to give you contact information and to post photos of the Retiree Club Meeting speakers and members.
The Retiree Club typically meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM. The club meets at the Meeting Hall at 212 Utz Lane (Union Hall).
If the 2nd Thursday falls on a holiday, the District will reflect the re-scheduled day of the meeting.
