The Association of BellTel Retirees in celebrating its 20th anniversary in Tarrytown, New York with a meeting at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel located at 455 South Broadway on Tuesday, April 19, beginning at 8 a.m.
Members will get the chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues, speak with Association board members and hear from and speak to the Association’s legal team about our ongoing federal litigation and also about our efforts to fight back against pension de-risking and much more.
We urge everyone to mark their calendar and make it a priority to attend the meeting. For those who live in the New York – New Jersey – Connecticut Metropolitan region, the hotel is less than an hour away by car or the MTA Metro North Railroad from New York City and it is the first exit off the Tappan Zee Bridge in Westchester County. It is also just minutes off of Interstate 95 and is easily accessible from all major highways. For those interested in coming via Metro North, the hotel is offering shuttle service, given advance notice of arrival time.
Tarrytown, the backdrop for Washington Irving’s famous “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is home to many of the Industrial Age mansions overlooking the scenic Hudson River. Nearby, you will be able to visit the Empire Casino at Yonkers Raceway; Kykuit, the Rockefeller estate; Lyndhurst Castle, and so much more. The Doubletree hotel is about an hour south of West Point and some of the Hudson Valley’s many wineries.
Our last annual meeting in Tarrytown was back in 2010 and over 300 members attended. We want as many of you and your spouses to be a part of this big event.
The hotel is offering the Association of BellTel Retiree members a special room rate of $137 dollars for those who wish to stay overnight. Use code ABR when booking.

We look forward to seeing you at our 20th annual celebration.
