RETIREMENT INFORMATION SEMINAR
On Saturday, April 18th, starting at 8:00am in the Local 440 Main Hall, representatives from PNC, legal, health, and Social Security will present valuable information about retirement, and answer questions you may have. If you are considering retirement, this is a valuable resource for our members and spouses. Please RSVP by calling the Hall, so that we can make sure we have adequate handout materials.
Saturday, April 18th is union build day for the Rebuild Together project. I am looking for volunteers to donate their time and skills from 7:00am to Noon on this date. Last year we had a record number of volunteers and I would like to do better this year. We have approximately 24 houses this year. The work that has to be done varies from replacing toilets to installing water heaters.
There is no better feeling than giving to someone who really appreciates and deserves just a little help. These are not run down houses they are people on fixed incomes or with disabilities that hamper them from the preventative maintenance items that need to be done around the house.
Volunteers will receive a free T-shirt on union build day. This is a great endeavor but it can’t be done without your help! Trust me, I know that we are all very busy. That is why I am only asking for 4 hours or so on a Saturday morning. You will have the rest of the day for your needs and trust me it is something special to be a part of. Please, if you can find the time and want to volunteer, please call or text me @317-430-8350 or e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org .
Bob Stieneker. Business Representative, UA Local 440
Two of our members (Chad & Kandy Earlywine) lost everything they own in a house fire recently. A fund has been set up if you would like to donate to their recovery. The photos tell it all. http://www.gofundme.com/mo3p70
