Dear Retiree Association Members


The Glass Academy Tour scheduled for this Thursday, March 19, 2020 has been cancelled. Joyce Obenhoff has all of the checks for this event and she will destroy them, so you will get your money back. Please call Joyce at (248) 281-3006 if you have any questions. In addition, the Bowl-A-Rama event scheduled for April 11 is being cancelled. Because we use this event to raise money for our charitable donations, those wishing to still donate money can call Beleta Williams at (313) 244-6243.

We are in the process of reviewing whether to have the Spring Luncheon and Meadowbrook Theater events. We will make a decision on these events in early April and inform our members if they are cancelled. As with the Glass Academy Tour, any members signing up for an event which is subsequently cancelled will have their money reimbursed.

One additional note, our dear friend and fellow board member and the person who was handling the Glass Academy Tour event, Sandra Crossey passed away unexpectedly last Friday so please DO NOT CALL HER PHONE NUMBER. You can call Susan Lettner at (586) 431-3110 if you have any questions. We were very shocked and saddened to hear about her passing and our prayers go out to her and her family.

Please be aware that the Board of Directors of the BCBSM Retiree Association is keeping well informed about the status of the health situation in Michigan and will do everything in its power to assure the health and well-being of the members. We wish you the very best and hope that each of you will do everything possible to protect your good health.

Please feel free to email me at if you have any questions.
