Newark Event December 2021:
The Newark ALPA LEC 5 and the EWR Chief Pilot Office held their jointly-sponsored annual Holiday Party on Friday, Dec. 10th, 2021, at the local Renaissance Hotel. As it is every year since 2016 when this event began, it was a great party! Food, open bar, live music, dancing and generally a lot of fun and reminiscing from about 5 pm until maybe 11. And then a lot of folks who have gotten themselves rooms for the overnight retiring to the hotel bar for further socializing. The party especially takes time to recognize all the EWR-based pilots who have retired since the last party (which was in 2019 because 2020 was a COVID-cancellation), and all the new-hire pilots assigned to EWR. A smattering of Golden Eagles attended, and a pretty big group, maybe 15-25, newly retired Legacy-CAL pilots. It could’ve been more but that’s about how many I recognized. We’re somewhat short of enough GEs who live close enough to EWR to hold a local event, but this party comes ready-made and organized to piggyback on and use for a local GE reunion, so every year I’ll be pushing for people to come enjoy it. There will be somebody there you know. Below is a video and photo of the festivities.
