Finally it’s Fall !!


Dear ARA Members,

The Alcon Retirees Association luncheon scheduled for Monday, September 14th, has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Dr. Andrew Walker, Executive Director of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, was our scheduled speaker and will speak to us at a future date. In the meantime, you might enjoy visiting their website for virtual events and tours. Since the museum has opened, you may enjoy an actual visit there. Hours and safety measures are in their website.

Our next luncheon is still scheduled for December 7th on the Alcon campus. I’ll keep you posted on changes. 

Stay safe and healthy!


Best regards,

Pat Cappelletti

President,  Alcon Retiree’s Association
