ARA New Registrations

Dear new Alcon retirees,

The ARA website self-registration function to join our ARA roster is presently not working.   The problem dates back to just before Christmas-time.    So if you have tried to register recently, our apologizes for not responding to you.    Thank you for your patience while the problem is being fixed.     Please continue to watch this post for an update saying everything is working.   Hopefully this should be soon.

Happy New Year !


Happy New Year !


Dear ARA Members,

Best wishes to all for a wonderful start to the New Year !

Many thanks to all members for participating in our 2019 ARA activities.     The annual Christmas Lupper at Alcon was great fun and well-attended again this year.     Thanks to all for coming out and enjoying the event.     Thank you as well to Richard Brigman for his very informative presentation on Alaska sightseeing and cruising.

Please be sure to watch the website for the announcement of 2020 dates for our ARA luncheons.    You will want to be sure to mark your calendar for these events.

Here’s to a super 2020 and Happy New Year !
