On This Day in 2005

November/December 2012

Brothers and Sisters,

You are receiving this late due to the fact that the phone lines and the internet was down at the Union Hall for a period of time.

Dates of interest:

November 6th is Election Day (hope you voted).

November 11th is Veterans Day.

November 22th is Thanksgiving Day.

December 10th is the cutoff date for your envelopes to be sent in for the Christmas Party.

December 20th is our Christmas Party.

December 25th is Christmas Day.

The difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle. Deceased veterans are also remembered on Veterans Day but the day is set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military - in wartime or peacetime.

There are a lot of places honoring our veterans on or around Veterans Day. You can Google Veterans Day discounts or freebees or go to web sites such as

The hall for our parties is the UAW Hall at 1010 South Oldham Street. It's near the corner of South Oldham Street and O’Donnell Street, right behind the BP station. The hall is right off the Boston Street exit of Route 95 (new tunnel) and the O’Donnell Street exit of Route 895 (old tunnel). The Christmas party will be held on Thursday December 20th. Not the 21st as posted in the last newsletter.

There are some changes that have been made: (1) The hours for the parties are now 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (instead of noon to 4 p.m.), and (2) NO ONE will be allowed in the hall until 20 minutes prior to the start of the party.

Start getting your envelopes in. Remember that your check should be $25 if one person and $50 if 2 people. You will get your check back at the party. They have to be received by December 10th. There will be a cake wheel and a money wheel. We need volunteers for both of the wheels. Please bring cakes for the cake wheel; thank you in advance.
