FLU VACCINE SCHEDULE 2020

DTE Energy is offering drive-through only flu vaccines this year from September 24th through October 15th. See the schedule. If any of the locations are not convenient, keep in mind that Medicare will cover vaccinations at most other locations like drugstores or doctors’ offices.

2020 ANNUAL MEETING CANCELLED

The DEAR Annual Meeting, typically held in May, had been tentatively rescheduled for Wednesday – September 16, 2020. Unfortunately the current COVID guidelines will not allow a venue to host over 200 indoors – and as you know most of our retirees are in that age bracket that is still looked upon as ‘more vulnerable.’  Based on this state of affairs, we are unable to have the annual meeting in 2020. We hope to be able to have it in May of 2021.  Stay safe.
