First Wednesday in December - Dec 4, 1:30pm
A group of Labs employees started the First Wednesday in December gathering a number of years ago. The gathering was held at Roys Place in Gaithersburg.
After COMARA was formed, and Lockheed Martin had purchased COMSAT, the gatherings continued. Unfortunately, Roys Place, a unique bar that offered an amazing selection of exotic sandwiches, has closed. Ron Johnson has been organizing gatherings for several years now, and found Woodside Deli (in the Germantown Commons shopping center) to be a suitable venue. The Woodside Deli is described as An Authentic Jewish deli and restaurant. They also offer an extensive selection of food.
Ron has completed arrangements to hold the First Wednesday in December 2019
at the Woodside Deli. So, join us December 4 at 1:30 for an afternoon
of comaraderie and reminiscing. See the announcement at
Retirees With Health Benefits: Update Your Information
After careful consideration, Lockheed Martin has selected Via Benefits as the approved partner to provide you with plan advice and enrollment assistance for health reimbursement expenses for medical, pharmacy, and dental coverage.
Via Benefits handles health benefits for Lockheed Martin Retirees who have health reimbursement converage. It is likely that some of us have not made any updates to our benefits list since we originally signed up for Health Reimbursement services.

If you plan to make any changes in your health benefits, be sure you go through VIA Benefits.

I received some pictures from Dan Shawen along with picture from the 2019 COMARA Social from Paul Schrantz and Gezy Serenyi. Dan's pictures are not from the social, but individual photos he collected of our colleagues at COMSAT. These will be added later when other work on the web site is complete. So - thanks, Daniel. Dan may be able to provide additional pictures.
