We are having a retirement workshop for any member and spouse at the hall on Tuesday Feb. 17 at 6p.m. Please RSVP so we can have enough material and food for the meeting. Also on the same date there will be a Wellness Screening from 2:30-5:30 please call to schedule an appointment.
On Wednesday March 4- 6:30 pm, at the Laborers Hall there is a Candidates Night. We have local elections in April for School Boards, Normal Town Council, and Bloomington City Council. This will be a forum where the canididates will be asked questions that effect working families. We encourage you to show up to become informed on what the candidates think about issues that pertain to our livelihood.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of our Sister Beth Sylvester. We lost Beth on the evening of 1/8/15. We will post information on arrangements when we get them.
