On This Day in 1937:

Ford Motor Co. security guards attack union organizers and supporters attempting to distribute literature outside the plant in Dearborn, Mich., in an event that was to become known as the “Battle of the Overpass.” The guards tried to destroy any photos showing the attack, but some survived—and inspired the Pulitzer committee to establish a prize for photography.

May/June 2013

Brothers and Sisters:

May is here in all its glory, with summer rolling in on June 21. Mother's Day is May 12, and Armed Forces Day is May 18. This is a day to pay tribute to men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. At the end of the month, on May 27, we celebrate Memorial Day--a day of remembrance for those who have died serving our country.  In June, Flag Day is on the 14th and Father’s Day is on the 16th.

The regular union meeting was held this past Sunday, May 5. Our retirees once again handled the cookout for this meeting, and did a tremendous job. With between 225 and 250 members at the cookout, everything went very well. I want to thank each of the retired volunteers who helped out. This was the last Sunday meeting for Local until September.

We will continue to have our retirees' meetings the third Thursday of every month.

With beautiful weather and good food afterwards, 77 golfers had a great time at the annual spring golf outing on April 27 at Hog Neck Golf Course in Easton, Maryland. Hope to see you at the fall tournament. Bowling is over for the year and will resume again in September. A special thanks goes out to Joe Reichert, Mike Brett, and Mel Holden for doing an outstanding job running the bowling league.

It's election time again. I am happy to say that all of the officers have decided to run again on the same ticket. If anyone wishes to run, please have your nominations ready for the May meeting. Voting will be held at the June meeting.

I have received the following list of senior discounts many times over the past year, and thought that I would share it with you. Since many senior discounts are not advertised to the public, our advice to men and women over 55 is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a senior discount. Also, please note that some senior discounts vary by region. That way, you can be sure to get the most bang for your buck. Some of these might have strings attached, and some might be outdated. If you can get at least one that works, then this was worth sharing.

Remember: YOU must ASK for your discount!
