Some 400 active and retired members celebrated Local 137’s 100 year anniversary at the Shasta District Fairgrounds in Anderson on October 5, 2013. Officers, staff, and volunteers hosted the event by barbecuing and serving tri-tip and chicken with all the fixings.
We were fortunate to have Joint Council 7 President and IBT Vice President Rome Aloise make the long trip, helping in the meal line, talking with the members, and giving an inspirational keynote speech. IBT Historian Karin Jones came out from Washington, D.C. with a great program educating us on the history of Local 137.
Members won thousands of dollars in raffle prizes, including Giants tickets, BBQs, gift certificates, and 2 big screen TVs as the grand prizes.
Members, active and retired, friends, and family enjoyed celebrating this landmark anniversary for Local 137.
