Pionairs AGM 1981.

Some 500 participants turned out for the fourth annual general meeting of the Pionairs held on April 30 to May 2, 1981 in Anaheim, California. At that time the Pionairs boasted a membership of some 1,300 retirees. The meeting combined informative sessions with some good old-fashioned fun such as the "Flight Attendant" chorus line pictured here.
