Local 1753 Retiree Chair Laura Clark
Updated On: Mar 12, 2020

February 2020

Greetings brothers and sisters,
I hope you and yours had a happy holiday! I am sure we and our sister Local 1618 feel good for help-ing many people this winter feel warmer and happier with all the socks, hats, scarves, and mittens collected from the giving tree. Thanks to all who worked on that. Two bags went out before Christ-mas because of the cold, four af-ter. What a great showing for our effort, thank you so much. We al-so received many thanks for our end of year donations to all of our favorite charities. The Christmas party went very well. Good turn out , though not as big as when we first retired. We can do better next year because of all the new retir-ees who just left! We want to wel-come you.
I also want to thank all the retirees who helped the members working the strike. Some dropped hot food and supplies to the hall. Many went to our two gates and fed the people while they walked. I appre-ciate all of you, your support, and your car horns!
January and February lunch and meeting went very well and easy for we went to Buffet World. They of course, take care of everything and we don't have to bring a dish to pass. They have a nice variety of food including sushi and a BD Mongolian Grill type area! Of course they still have some of my favorites like chicken and macaro-ni and cheese. The executive board wanted to make sure you could get in to the meeting with out worrying about snow plowing the hall or the sidewalks. The first two months are usually the worst but as you have probably noticed, global warming means extreme on both ends!
Speaking of seasons, the busy election cycle is upon us. I hope you have not been daunted by the last three years of coverage to get involved, or to watch the debates. Some were not that good, some were dynamic and entertaining!
Please think about receiving a mail in ballot. It will save you waiting in long lines this election. Also, it is one way to be sure your vote won't be hacked. It is the paper trail. Many states already use this meth-od for every election. As we in Michigan should now consider, you have more voting because it is easy and if you don't trust the mail you can still drop it off.
Our next lunch and meeting is March 12th at the hall, back home! We are lucky enough this month to have Rob from Swedes cater a St. Patrick's themed dinner for us. If you remember, he and his group do such a nice and delicious meal we want them to do lunch often! I can't wait to see you and yours there. Obits - Vic Larsen, Tom Setter, and Shirley Albright
