IAM Local Lodge 1922 Celebrates the Retirement of Long-Time Member Mike Beard

Congratulations and best wishes to Mike Beard, who, after 34 years at Magellan Aerospace, is retiring.

Mike started with Local 1922 in 1986 and worked as a printing press operator before transferring into records for his last 10 years.

“The IAM pension has made a big difference in my decision to retire,” said Beard, who will be staying active by volunteering and playing in his band (Suburban Outlaws).

We wish Mike all the best in his retirement, and may he enjoy his music for many many years.
