I know how easily a day can drag when you have nothing to do. If your manager can't find work for you and I've you checked other avenues, I encourage you to consider returning to school or pursuing certifications and using your downtime to study (with permission of course).

You could also look to see if there might be brand new responsibilities you could take over at work. Naturally this would depend on your company, but areas to look at would include web site maintenance, social media updates, blog posts, writing an employee newsletter, etc. This can lead to new areas of responsibilities, future promotions and expanded skillsets that will serve you well in the future.

Personally I had a fantastic year and I expect 2017 to be even better.

However, I dread having Trump in the White House. So we'll see how the rest of life feels soon enough.

I'm not sure what your HR would think was a basic courtesy - a lot of companies just see 'secretary' as 'admin staff' who can just be swapped around at will and if there are no changes to the terms of your employment, they may not see any need to formalise the move in writing.  This is probably to your benefit. 

I wouldn't chase getting something in writing unless I knew that I was completely happy with the new arrangement.  It might trigger a new contract and you have 30 years service* which is significant if there are further reorganisations or you decide that the new role isn't for you.  Is there a trial period?  Perhaps the end of the trial period is when you could ask for written confirmation of the new role or perhaps at an annual review if you have one?   The person who notified you of the change of role is probably who you could talk to in the first instance, but do make sure you're happy, and DON'T trust HR to do the right thing for you - they will do the right thing for the company. 

*actually on rereading your post, I'm not sure if your 30 years service is with the same co, but the principle applies, protect your service term and your original contract if the terms are favourable

Did you accomplish any of your goals? I don't really do goals.

Was it a good or not so good year?  It was a good year, job steady, love life steady, good kids and no major problems.

Anything special happen?  Son married a beautiful woman.

Positive thinking for 2017! Any comments?  2017 is what is and will be what it will be!  If any major problems come, will deal with them!

I needed to send some holiday packages and the really nice guy at the FedEx office on Westheimer in Houston helped me get my package out even though I was in a big rush.  I will have to go back and find his name, but people like that can make a stressful holiday a tiny bit less stressful.

I will make sure you see this, but a big thanks to a co-worker Pam F.   Three weeks ago I was in a rush with a two projects and she took the time and helped me, even though it meant two nights working until almost 9 pm.  She didn't have to, but did because she is a beautiful person inside and out.   It is nice to give you a public thank you and let everyone know how awesome you are.
