May/June 2011 Newsletter
Updated On: Jul 07, 2011

Brothers and Sisters:

   May is here in all its splendid glory, with summer rolling in on June 21.
   In May we have Mothers Day. We also have, on May 21, Armed Forces Day. It is a day to pay tribute to men and women who serve in the United States armed forces. This year we say a special thanks to the members of the U.S. Navy “Seals” for the great job they just did. At the end of the month, on May 30, we celebrate Memorial Day--a day of remembrance for those who have died serving our country.
   In June we have Flag Day on the 14th and Fathers Day on the 19th.
   Brother Willie Morrison is getting together a 12-night Southern Caribbean cruise leaving Baltimore on February 6, 2012. You can go to the Royal Caribbean website and check out the itinerary, or call Willie at 410-465-1529 and he will give you all the information about who to contact. Remember, while we are sharing this information as a favor to Willie, the Retirees Club and Teamsters Local 355 are not endorsing this cruise.
   Check out our website (www.Teamsters355.com). Suggestions for items of interest and information you would like to see on the site are always welcome.
   The May meeting was the last Sunday meeting for Local 355 until September (we will still have our retirees meetings every third Thursday of the month). At this meeting, the retirees always hold a cookout for the members. A special thanks goes out to Stan Pietrowski, Calvin Duley, Frank Supiot, Will Sank, Ray Bularz, Tom Miskimon, Ron Cain, Rich Parker and Ed Wetherbee for another great job.
   Please inform us about any member that is sick or who has passed away, so we can keep everyone up to date.

   New Members: Ron Ritter, Jesse Parker

   Sick Members: Steve Glowacki

   Deceased Members: John Kirschke, Frank Kline, Louis Haigia, Herbert Sprinkle

   Please keep these members and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

   The next meetings will be on May 19 and June 16 in the Sullivan Hall at Teamsters Local 355, 1030 S. Dukeland Street, Baltimore, MD. Coffee and donuts are served at 9:30 a.m. The Executive Board meets at 10 a.m., and the general meeting begins at 11 a.m. A light lunch is served following the general meeting. Hope to see you there. Remember to bring another retiree with you.

Fraternally,

Bob Eney, President
