50-60 Year Members Honored
At our September 6th Branch meeting we honored our newest group of 50 and 60 year members. NALC National Business Agent Pat Carroll was on hand to present 60 year member Bob Kreager with his pin and letter from President Rolando.
This year we had four members who qualified for their 50 year gold cards and two who qualified for their 60 year pins. The following is a list of Branch honorees that unfortunately, were unable to attend: 50 year members Synthia Kilgore, Carol Maxwell, Elaine Stacho, and Thelma Watts; 60 year member Bob Sedore. On behalf of your Union Brothers and Sisters here at the Branch, I would like to congratulate our honorees for their many years of loyal and dedicated service to the National Association of Letter Carriers and to our Branch, and for attaining these significant milestones in their Union membership.
At our September 25, Executive Board meeting our Branch Trustees selected the recipients of the four Branch Scholarships for 2017. Congratulations to Evelyn Maciejewski, the daughter of Belleville carrier Robert Maciejewski; Lucas Kuzala, the son of retired Dearborn Annex carrier Joanne Kuzala; Robin Crowder, the daughter of Dearborn Annex carrier Jesse Crowder; and finally Kareem Bryant, the son of Westland carriers Felicia and Kareem Bryant. Each winner will receive $500 from the Branch to use toward their tuition or other school related expenses. On behalf of the Branch we wish you much success in your chosen fields of study.
MDA Satchel Drive
On Sunday September 10, our Branch once again participated in the annual NALC “Fill the Satchel” drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. As in years past both active and retired members hit the street corners near the Union office at the intersection of Ecorse and Monroe. Our volunteers worked the streets from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm filling the satchel for MDA. Our total for the day came in at a respectable $1381.88! Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to make our “Fill the Satchel” drive another success. They are Canton, Joe Golonka and Tyler Haverstick; Dearborn, Mark Judd; Dearborn Heights, Jim Powell; Flat Rock, Lillian Bogosian; Grosse Ile, Gloria Warthen; Inkster, Phil Ashford; Lincoln Park, Paula Hall, Dave Reise, Scott Watts, and Brandon Watts; Monroe, Jackie Belman; Northville, Beth Bays and Janice Mitchum; Plymouth, Patty Linna; Taylor, Michele Szafran; Trenton, Tracy Mitchell; and Westland, Felicia Bryant and Katrina Jones.
I would like to thank the membership for the vote of confidence they gave me by reelecting me by acclamation for another term as your president.
