At our Mineola Office, the Local 342 Member BBQ on Monday night, July 31 was a smashing success with over 30 attendees, four games, one raffle winner, $260 raised for breast cancer research, dozens of laughs, and a spread of delicious food prepared by grill master and Shop Steward Dean Blafford.
We played cornhole, cards, Left/Right/Center, and badminton (not so well, haha). Shop Steward Keung Louie won the $50 gift certificate to Best Buy, and our amazing fundraisers for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Mary, Cathy, Jeannie and Shirley – added another $260 to their growing pot of donations for Local 342’s annual cause. We ate burgers, hot dogs, and sausage and peppers, salads, watermelon and Italian ices. Some members brought their spouses and kids and dogs! Some even brought their own beer. And of course, the music was blasting.
Join Local 342 next Monday night, August 7, from 4:30-7:30 for BBQ and fun!
We could really use a couple of better badminton players to teach us some tricks, but we welcome ALL members to come, bring the family, pitch in, join in, and have a blast together!
