On This Day in 1940

Woody Guthrie wrote “This Land Is Your Land” following a frigid trip—partially by hitchhiking, partially by rail—from California to Manhattan. The Great Depression was still raging. Guthrie had heard Kate Smith’s recording of “God Bless America” and resolved to himself: “We can’t just bless America, we’ve got to change it”.

Brothers and Sisters,

First off, let me wish everyone a Happy New Year!

The Christmas party was a smash hit. We had a fantastic turnout of 246 people. The food was awesome and the hall nicely decorated for the holidays. A special thanks to the executive committee for doing another spectacular job. Thanks to Mike Krainer and his crew who ran the money wheel. Thanks to Tommy Madkins for running the cake wheel. It takes a lot of time and volunteers to make these parties the success that they are. A special thanks goes out to all of you who brought the baked goods for the cake wheel. Winner of the 50/50 was George Booker who donated $100 back to the Retirees Club.

In appreciation, retirees club presents Local 355 with very large gift
  The Local 355 Association of Retired Members (A.R.M.) made a surprise presentation of a state-of-the-art television to the union during its monthly meeting Thursday, Jan. 20, at the Baltimore hall.  

  The Vizio SmartCast E-Series 70” Class Ultra HD Home Theater Display will replace the rarely-used, dated TV currently in the members meeting hall. “Our Retiree Bowling League wanted to do something special to show our sincere appreciation for everything Local 355 does for us,” said Bob Eney, president of the club.

  “It really is amazing,” Secretary-Treasurer Dave White said about the generous gift. “These guys take nothing for granted here; they are always giving back. We’ve worked with them for years and they were like part of the family. That connection continues today.” White said he looks forward to putting the high-tech TV to good use. “The IBT produces excellent training and organizing videos that we’ll now be able to share with our members and stewards.”  

   A picture of this presentation and pictures from the Christmas Party and an announcement of Amports East looking for new employees can be found at  www.teamsters355.com.

  Congratulations to Triple Crown Winners:
    Rich Parker, Betty AnnBarr and Dan Wachter.

  A special thanks to Attorney James E. Garland of the Peter G. Angelos Law Offices for his generous donation of Baltimore Orioles merchandise which will be raffled off at upcoming retirees' meetings.

  Remember, we can always use new bowlers!
