The CSC Committee is taking donation bids for flags to raise funds for upcoming community service projects. Bid sheets are at the Union Hall. Union and Company, Active and Retired are welcome to bid. Winners will be notified directly after the May 16th 3:45 meeting.
All Flags are used and do have damage and/or are in need of a cleaning. American Flags can be cleaned for free at the Terrace Hill Plaza Cleaners. Repairs can be made at Denise’s Alterations.

 
The Veterans Committee will be ordering the bricks on May 18th. They will be done taking orders on May 16th after the last membership meeting. Anyone wanting to order that does not want to have to go on-line to do so, can fill out the flyer and submit it to committeeman Matt Pickrell and he will enter your information on the web site and print you a preview of what your brick will look like.
You can also go to www.bricksrus.com/donorsite/uawottumwa if you would like to order it yourself.
Remember this is a $50.00 donation to the veterans fund and your check should  be written to: UAW Local 74 Veterans fund. The fund raiser will be going on until April but  you can submit your order at any time.
We are also looking for volunteers to help remove 2 flag poles from their current location at 1255 Pennsylvania Ave. and reinstall them at the union hall. Please contact Matt Pickrell.
You must be a member or spouse of a member to purchase bricks. To purchase bricks either click on the link above or click  Bricks for flag pole form for a printable form and turn it in to the Union Hall.

How it began

Letter to Local 74

Dear Union Members,
I must thank you and give you a brief comment about the Ottumwa Beach party this past fall. I attended with three preteen girls, and we so thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I am a widow of a retiree, now alone, and decided to attend the party. It was a beautiful warm evening, the food was delicious and plentiful, along with drinks and desserts.
The girls had a ball at the beach, and all fell asleep on the way home, from going down the slide so many times! I sat on a picnic table, as the band played great music, and for the first time since his death I had a feeling of calm and peace. It was an AH AH moment for me, and a turning point that I can make it! We all had the best time and I want to thank you for all you do for all the employees!
Sincerely Kathy Grubb

 

Thank You Kathy for the kind words. We strive to include the members and families and show our support.
