ARA Christmas Lupper – December 3rd

Dear ARA Members,

Please join us for a festive Christmas celebration with your fellow Alcon retirees and guests on Monday afternoon, December 3rd, on the Alcon Fort Worth campus in the Crossroads Conference Center (old cafeteria).    Planning is underway, and updates will be posted on this website page.

Here are a few important “Lupper” items to make note of now:

>  The party will begin with a social hour at 2:15 pm and our buffet meal will start around 3:00 pm.   The program is still to be determined, though we’ll definitely wrap-up by 5:00pm.

>  Once again, there will be many fun door-prizes to raffle-off.   You must be present to win, so be sure to sign-up and join the celebration.

>  Please RSVP by Monday, November 26th.   Your RSVP is really important to ensure we plan for the correct number of attendees.  Please remember to do this.   The cost of the event is $10.00 per person — ARA members are welcome to bring guests.   Please send a check, along with your name and guests attending, to:    Alcon Retirees Association, R9-14, 6201 South Freeway, Fort Worth, TX  76134.   It wouldn’t hurt to include an additional $5.00 for your 2019 ARA dues.

>  Corporate Security requests that all guests be accompanied by a retiree for clearance at the main gate.   You must bring your Alcon Retiree Gold Card for identification.    Parking places will be reserved on the west side of the parking lot — just look for the orange marker cones.

>  Do you need a ride to be able to attend the Lupper ?   We are exploring a ride sharing program coordinated by Lito Dayrit.   Matching drivers with riders in convenient locations will determine if this is feasible.   If you are interested in either obtaining a ride or offering to drive, please contact Lito at 817-308-5243 or email at by November 20th.  He will then ask you for additional information.

We look forward to seeing everyone at this fun holiday event.

On behalf of the Alcon Retirees Association, all the best wishes for a joyful and blessed holiday season !

Warmest regards,

Brad Kling
