District 751 has scheduled the second Veteran's Committee meeting on Saturday, October 20th from 10:00 am to 12 noon at the Seattle Hall in the District Council Chambers (9125 15th Pl. S, Seattle – this is the north building not the big steward meeting hall, which has a different event on that day).
Any IAM 751 member who is a veteran is welcome to attend and help shape the direction of this committee going forward.
At the October 20th meeting we will be planning for our Committee’s participation in the 2018 Auburn Veteran’s Day Parade, which will be held on Saturday, November 10. This is the largest Veteran’s Day parade west of the Mississippi.
Additionally, we will be discussing future activities for our committee and officers for the committee.
Please email Kay Michlik at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for either the Oct. 20th meeting or if you would like to take part in the Nov. 10th parade. Feel free to invite other 751 veterans who might be interested in taking part in this committee. Be sure to include your full name if you send an email.
