BOEING RETIREE VOLUNTEERS

Heritage Chapter

The first chapter of Bluebills, organized in 1995, is called the Heritage Chapter.  We offer volunteer and social opportunities to retirees throughout Seattle, South King County, East King County and Pierce County.

As the largest chapter, we have a wide range of activities going on all the time.   In 2012, our members contributed more than 56,000 hours to community causes.  To find out what's going on, we invite you to read our newsletter.

Come Join Us!

We invite Boeing retirees and their spouses to pay us a visit and find out for themselves how personally rich and satisfying retirement can be.

 

Chapter meetings are normally held on the fourth Friday of each month located at:
VFW Post 1263, 416 Burnett Ave S, Renton, WA 98057

Volunteer Activities

The following are examples of  member volunteer activities:

Bluebill volunteers collect some of the Christmas presents that will be given to brighten the holidays of needy children in the area.
 
 
USO Volunteers at the Ski To Sea race

One of the ongoing Heritage Chapter activities is a hardworking group called the Busy B's,

The Busy B's provide afghans and lap robes to nursing home residents, refurbished gently-used stuffed toys and dolls (with clothing) to be given away at Christmas, plus they make hand-sewn pillows and hand-knitted infant and children's caps. This is in addition to the numerous quilts they give to Habitat for Humanity and other worthy causes.

Volunteers shown working on one of many quilts they will produce for distribution to needy families.

USO volunteers welcomed submariners of the USS OHIO who were flying in from Japan and Houston.

They were greeted with flowers, hugs, smiles, food, beverage, and info at the baggage claim area of their inbound flight.

 

NORTHWEST HARVEST

The Bluebills have a proud tradition of being involved in hunger relief, volunteering at Food Banks, fund raising, donating food and supplies and many other activities.
