All affiliates should have now received a letter about our upcoming 16th Annual State Retiree Council Fun(d)raiser, on Saturday, May 4, 2019. The envelope should have included a letter, flyer and some Statewide Raffle tickets. If your affiliate has not received this information in the mail, please give us a call at 651-227-7647, ext. 121 so we can get the material to you. Also, let us know if you want more raffle tickets.
People of all ages are welcome and enjoy our legendary Fun(d)raiser. The good times will roll from 3-7 p.m., at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 10 Hall, 1681 Cope Ave., Maplewood MN. PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE OF LOCATION AFTER THE PAST FEW YEARS AT THE ST. PAUL RLF BUILDING. Thanks to the RLF and the Sheetmetal Workers for their generous gift of facility usage to support the Retiree Council!
The popular, free admission event will feature free food, music, hourly raffles for valuable prizes, a silent auction and the all-important state-wide raffle. Parking is free.
The state-wide raffle features a drawing for major cash prizes, one $500 cash prize, two $300 cash prizes, two $150 cash prizes and two $100 cash prizes. Three tickets cost only $5.00.
Our extensive election work this year has left us with a limited carryover for our 2019 budget. This will be an important year of working with RLFs, ALCs and affiliates to organize union retiree groups and assist established groups with internal organizing. So this year’s Fun(d)raiser is critical to our mission.
Watch for further information, and right now, put this date on your calendar!
