The end of the school year is almost here. For our graduating seniors, this is a time of transition as they prepare to go away to college. To help with this transition, IBEW 1049 has set up a scholarship fund. The fund is to help our members to defray the cost for their loved ones in continuing their education. If your child is preparing to go to college in August, please apply. I have included instructions below. All applications must be submitted before July 1, so please apply today.
I would also like to wish all of our members a Happy Memorial Day. While this weekend is a great time to fire up the barbecue, head to the beach and enjoy time with friends and family, please take a few moments to remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. I would also like to remind all of our members that the Teamsters Local 812 are still on strike at Clare Rose. Please refrain from buying Budweiser products, like those listed below, this weekend. Please have a safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
