The first McDonald’s Restaurant opens, in Des Plaines, Ill., setting the stage years later for sociologist Amitai Etzioni to coin the term "McJob." As defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, a McJob is "An unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, especially one created by the expansion of the service sector."

 Brothers and Sisters:

   Well, I guess it's safe to say that you are as fed up with this Winter weather as I am. It's looking better as we are getting closer to good weather with Spring training underway, and St. Paddy's day near. Even the first day of Spring will be here before you know it!   We have some bowling dates to make up due to the bad weather. The makeup dates will all be on Monday: March 1, 15, and 29. (Yes, Johnny. We will still be bowling on Wednesdays also.) The bowling banquet will be held on May 12 at the Union Hall from 12-4 p.m. Please remember that the banquet is for bowlers only.

olf Tournament will be held on April 24 at Queenstown Harbour on the Eastern Shore. Start time is 8:30 a.m. Contact the Union Hall for more information. Remember that theretirees won the Fall tournament! Hope to see you there!

r guest speaker at out March meeting. She will talk to the members about what the IBT is doing about archiving Teamsters' history. So bring all your old paraphernalia and memorabilia, and tall stories. Some of the story telling will be recorded if you want. This should be fun!
