  • UBBRG last Newsletter: The Unisys Blue Bell Retirees' Group final newsletter is now linked from our newsletter page. [12/20/2016]
  • Site Redesign: Please be patient as we reconstruct this entire site for ease of reading with smart phones, etc. Note that some page tabs will link to prior style and structure. If a button/tab/link doesn't work for you, send me a note - webmaster@vipclubmn.org
    The new Cascading Style Sheet controls the style and fonts all pages; for example, if some text is in blue, that is a link to another page, pdf document, or an email address. Many pages will have prior format until conversions are completed. Pages will be reformatted and the select tabs re-connected 'sort of on the fly' as the webmaster has volunteer time available. I hope to be done and have a celebration 'beer' at the June 14th picnic. LABenson! [1/26/2017]
