The annual TI Retiree Luncheon was held at the Mesquite Convention Center on November 14, with 360 retirees and guests in attendance as TIAA celebrated it's 20th anniversary. During the program, TIAA President, Debi Heaton, recognized those who were involved in the creation of the TIAA in July 1999, including 31 charter members in attendance at the luncheon. During the luncheon a slideshow told the history of the TIAA, with photographs highlighting the many activities of the association over the past 20 years.
On October 15 two seminars were held at the Plano Event Center in Plano, TX to discuss TI health insurance plans and medical changes that would be of interest to TI retirees. The first session was at 10:00 am for pre-65 TI retirees and there were more than 140 in attendance.
Once again, TI has kindly invited TIAA to visit the Dallas Arboretum as it kicks off the annual “Autumn at the Dallas Arboretum" festival (from September 23 to October 31) with one of the most spectacular pumpkin and gourd displays in the world.
Our TIAA volunteers performed pre-event tasks for the 9/11 Heroes Run which honors the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, including veterans, active duty personnel, first responders, and families of the fallen.
Twenty-six former TIers and guests registered and braved the hot July night to attend the Shoot for the Moon event by Dallas author James Donovan.
