On May 19, the Union Park Foundation in Fresno held their third annual event to honor fallen workers in the San Joaquin Valley. Opening ceremonies included the Fresno Police Department placing a wreath on the Union Park monument, which is located at the Fresno Fairgrounds.
“Teamsters Local 431, Joint Council 7 and many unions from around the Valley had joined together to help fund the building of this park,” reports Local 431 Business Rep Steve Sharp.
The family event included lunch, a kid zone with water slides and bounce houses, and a raffle. It was a great opportunity for union members from different trades to come together to honor labor.
