On This Day in 1954
On this day in 1954, Ellis Island closed as an immigration entry point. After 1924 the famous island in Jersey City instead served as a detention and deportation center until 1954. Albert Einstein was among the millions of immigrants that were processed prior to the 1954 closure. After World War 2, Germans soldiers were imprisoned there as well as those on the left deemed hostile during the McCarthy period. Today Ellis Island houses an immigration museum. The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island were closed after damage by Hurricane Sandy. The storm hit a day after the Statue of Liberty reopened. It had just completed a year-long renovation.

Brothers and Sisters,

   I hope you all had a happy and safe Labor Day.
   Bowling starts Wednesday, September 8th at 10 a.m. Please be there by 9:30. New bowlers are welcome. The bowling alley is Glenn Burnie Bowl, 6322 Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie (at Ritchie Highway and the Beltway). 
   The Fall Golf Tournament is September 25th, and will be held at Westminster National (old Bear Creek) again this year. For information, please call the Union Hall.
   The Summer Party was excellent; the food was fantastic. Everyone that I talked to had a great time. Don't take my word for it! Ask a member who was there and they will tell you how nice it was. Congratulations to Ann and Bob Norman for winning the 50/50.
   If you couldn't make the party, be sure that you make the Christmas Party, which will be held December 16th. It will be even better!
   The new hall for our parties is the UAW Hall at 1010 South O'Donnell Street, right behind the BP station. The hall is right off the Boston Street exit of Route 95 (new tunnel) and the O'Donnell Street exit of Route 895 (old tunnel). Please note: The hours for the parties are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (formerly Noon to 4 p.m.). No one will be allowed in the hall until 20 minutes prior to the start of the party.
   As mentioned above, the Christmas Party is scheduled for Thursday, December 16th. Start getting your envelopes in. They have to be received by December 6th. There will be a cake wheel and a money wheel. Please bring cakes for the wheel – and thank you in advance!
