Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this communication finds you and your loved ones both safe and healthy.

Because of COVID-19, Spring and Summer 2020 have looked a little different for Local One members and their families. We were unable to host our 125th Anniversary, as well as the annual golf outing, picnic, and Labor Day Parade. That said, I hope all of you had a healthy, safe summer full of good times with family and friends – and I very much look forward to connecting with you (in person) in coming months.

Today’s communication is regarding this month’s Local One meeting. The meeting will take place on Thursday, September 17 at 7:00pm via YouTube Live. A text message containing a link to access the meeting will be sent out about 30 minutes prior to the commencement.

The meeting will be live-streamed from downstairs – where our normal meetings are conducted. During the meeting, we’ll have each of the officers share their reports and answer any questions you may have. (Along those lines, please email your questions to localonecovid19@gmail.com by Thursday afternoon, so we can plan to address them during the livestream.)

I look forward to speaking with you later this week – and, hopefully, seeing many of your faces soon.

God Bless – Stay Interested, Involved, and Informed,

Lenny
