Please forward this to your DELTA friends

Hello Retirees,
Thanks for telling us about the meetings in your area. This schedule lists all we know of now. More and more of you are holding meetings in local areas and all are encouraged to take part in these. If one is not being held near you --- START ONE ---, it's pretty easy. Pick out a place that's good to go to, send me its name and address and a date and time, and I'll spread the word. After a couple of times, you'll have a good group getting together there. These below are ones I know about now but I know there must be many others out there. Please let me know where and when and the contact name, phone # and email address and this list will grow.  

Invite your former NORTHWEST AIRLINES friends to come with you to your next meeting.
