It's time again for our J & J Georgia Retirees Annual Meeting. This year our meeting will be at the Gainesville First Baptist Church Banquet Hall in Gainesville on THURSDAY, May 7, 2015.    We will again have the Health Fair to help us evaluate our personal health. There is no extra charge for participating in the general Health Screen (blood pressure, body fat, etc.).  You will be asked to pay $5 if you have the general blood tests done (glucose [diabetes], cholesterol, etc.), an additional $5 if you have the PSA test done (prostate cancer – men only) and/or an additional $5 if you have the thyroid test done, total of $15 for all three tests.  J&J GA Retirees Association will pick up the additional cost.  Payment should be made at the Fair.


The Health Fair begins at 9:00 a.m.  If you wish to have your blood tested, do not eat anything after midnight Wednesday evening.  You can have water and should take any medicines as usual.  Refreshments will be available after your tests at the Fair.


The registration fee for the meeting is $10 per person.  This is in addition to the $5.00 membership dues you may have paid earlier.  Enclosed is a form for you to fill out and return WITH YOUR PAYMENT in the enclosed return envelope.  DO IT TODAY or it might get lost in a drawer.  If you wait and register at the meeting, it will cost $15.00 per person, so pre-register and save yourself some money.  If you will not be able to attend, you do not need to send anything in.  If transportation is a problem, we may be able to help with that.  Please let us know by checking the box on the registration slip.


We will begin the meeting at 11:30 a.m. with lunch and should finish about 1:30 p.m.    Be on hand for good food, music, fellowship, a message from a J&J Corporate representative, door prizes and a nice gift bag. We expect to have a good crowd and look forward to seeing you there.
