Alcon Community Partnership Day 2018


The 2018 Alcon Community Partnership Day is planned for April 24th and all retirees are invited to participate — though it’s important to sign-up fast as volunteer spaces with the respective community organizations are limited.

If you have an interest to join-in with other Alcon associates at one of the partnering organizations, please contact Stacy Robinson at Alcon by email — — as soon as possible.    There also are some days before and after April 24th included, so work with Stacy and see what fits your schedule.    Here are some examples of partnering organizations — the BRIT, Catholic Charities, Cook Children’s, Humane Society, Mission Arlington, SafeHaven Arlington, and Union Gospel FtW to name a few.     Though hurry to contact Stacy because volunteer spaces may already be taken for these places.

Your volunteer time and efforts are greatly appreciated — please give the Alcon Community Partnership Day a try !


ARA Quarterly Luncheon – March 19th


Dear ARA Members,

Please save the date for our next ARA luncheon on the Alcon Fort Worth campus.    We will begin around 12:00 noon for social time and lunch, then the program will start by 1:00 pm.    Our meeting place will continue to be the Crossroads Conference Center.

Our speaker for the luncheon will be Dan Chick, Financial Advisor at Edward Jones Investments.    Dan’s presentation will take us on a Market “Trip Around the World” Review and a return to Fort Worth.   Further discussion will ask the question — Can Social Security survive and/or will Medicare be “Voted Off the Island” ?    Dan’s comments will point to the important choices required for each.

All ARA members, spouses, and other guests are welcome to attend.    Lunch is complimentary for ARA members.   Whereas, the charge for all spouses and guests will be $10 per person to be paid at the door.

Please remember to bring your Alcon Retiree Gold Card for security access to the Fort Worth campus.    Alcon Security will place the orange cones on the west-side of the main Tower A parking lot for reserving spaces.

You won’t want to miss this very informative program — along with catching-up with other ARA members and friends.    Look forward to seeing you !
