Recapping our local's year

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I know most of us only had the weekends off. All the same, it was with family and friends. 
If I may, I would like to recap some of the events that took place at our local in 2016. And thank all the members that helped make them a success. And all the members that came out and supported the events.
Thanks to Yvonne, Nancy, Laura and Dennis, along with Mandy and half of first shift’s maintenance crew, our annual Holloweenie roast went off without a glitch. And from the feedback (no pun intended), everyone had enough to eat while enjoying lunch with friends. Great job!
Let’s not forget the Chili Cook-off. The money generated went to support the vets. Thanks, Mandy, for planning such a fun event. I don’t even know how to begin to thank Bob Davis for all the hard work and dedication he so willingly volunteers to the Veterans Committee.    
During this election cycle, many of our members involved themselves or volunteered to participate in political rallies. Others manned the phone banks. Your time was not wasted, for you cared enough to get engaged and make a difference. I applaud you. 
Our standing committees have been involved serving the communities of Lansing. They helped ensure that many needy children heading back to school had backpacks filled with school supplies. When asked, our members donated gifts of time and money so children would have new coats and boots. And presents under their Christmas tree!
Your generosity even reached our neighboring community, Flint, in her time of need.
We really accomplished a lot in 2016. Looking forward to another great year with UAW Local 1753, and I can’t wait to see what we accomplish this year!
