Naeder, Sr. Addendum

Bill Naeder Jr’s phone number is: 917-834-3212917-834-3212, and he prefers phone (rather than email) contact, so give him a call for the detailed info.

I spoke yesterday with Joe Marcus (who works with Billy on the Early Show).. and he said that Bill Sr, had suffered a fall, and broke his collar bone.  And while in the hospital, they discovered an advanced cancer, which was not treatable.  So, he went back home, and I believe was receiving hospice care, before he passed (which I think was on Sunday or Monday past.).
Reported by Ray Sills
The next CBS Retirees Luncheon will be held at Regina's Steak House in Teaneck, NJ, on May 17th.
Full information will appear on our website, shortly.
The address will be posted in the next blog.



Sad news... Bill Naeder, Sr. has passed away.

No further information at present, but Bill Naeder, Jr. can
be reached at: Bill02 at but he only checks this
address, sporadically.

Swan Club Luncheon - 10-22-2015

We just concluded another successful luncheon at the Swan Club.
We had around 40 attendees, including some new faces!
If you have any photos that you want to put on the website, please e-mail them to me at Webmaster at By now, you should know to change the "at" to a "@"!
If you don't know, this is done to prevent "address-scrapers" from  grabbing addresses from websites, to use in spamming operations.

You might be lucky and get a shot at the Orionids meteor shower!

Swan Club luncheon Notice - October 22, 2015

Our next main luncheon will be on October 22nd, 2015, at the Swan Club.

Set that date aside! More complete information will follow, shortly.

Mini-Lunch on 9-29-2015

The next mini-lunch date is Tuesday, September 29th. at 12:00 P.M. which will be held at the Valbrook Diner in Valley Stream. The Valbrook is located at 160 East Merrick Road. You can take Merrick Road or Sunrise Highway to get there. Their phone number is 516-872-0465. If you are heading East on Merrick Rd, it will be on your right-hand side. If you pass Addison Place, the Two Guys auto shop, or the railroad trestle, you've gone too far! Heading West on Merrick Rd., when you see the railroad trestle, it will be coming up quickly on your left. There is metered parking in front and free parking in the lot behind the diner. If you are using Sunrise Highway heading East, make a left turn on Horton Ave and then another left on Merrick Rd. Heading West, turn right on Horton Ave., then left at the next traffic light, onto Merrick Rd. and continue, just past the trestle. All retirees and future retirees (and their spouses) are welcome to join us!
