Dear H. C. S. C. Friends,
As if things couldn’t get any more uncertain, the news about our
Pension Plan is very disconcerting. We are all anxiously waiting to
find out what this means exactly – for those of us in H. C. S. C.,
as well as the more than 50,000 other JCPenney retirees.
Yes, these are times of uncertainty – but one thing I do know for
sure is that the relationships we forged with one another in our
working years have grown even stronger during our years of
retirement and involvement in H. C. S. C.
I treasure the bonds I have with my JCPenney former associates,
whose commitment and dedication helped build a successful company we
could all be proud of.
Your continued involvement in your families, churches, schools,
non-profits and other community organizations has allowed you to
demonstrate the same sense of devotion and steadfastness you showed
in your individual contributions to the business world.
My hope is that we will all try to make the most of future
opportunities to get together with our fellow retirees and, once
again, enjoy those strong bonds of friendship.
As we move into this Holiday season – one like we have never
experienced before – my prayer is that we will be mindful to give
thanks for what we have, for the opportunities given to us to serve
others, and for the blessings of living in this great nation, even
with all of life’s current difficulties. Hopefully, you will get to
celebrate with family and/or close friends safely.
In partnership, Phil Esch
