On This Day in 1907
At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

Teamster retirees’ annual Christmas party another festive event

... “Retirees who have come from other locals have said that ours is one of the best to be involved with.”

In addition to the annual Christmas party, A.R.M.  has a bowling league, and hosts an annual bowling banquet and a summer party for its members.

The organization has a core group of members who meet at the Baltimore hall every Tuesday to share stories, talk labor and politics, assist with building maintenance and offer support to the officers and staff in whatever way they can. A.R.M.’s monthly meeting is held every third Thursday of the month except August and December, and averages 60 or more attendees.
