From the official invitation letter:
To celebrate Labor Day this year, RENEW and the Southern Piedmont Central Labor Council are working together to bring a fun, family friendly event to union members in Charlotte.
RENEW is the Young Workers chapter of the Electricians union. They have been really active in their local and understand the importance of union kinship, which is what led them to the idea for this big event for all the union folks.
We have all been through it in our own ways for the last year and half and what better way to celebrate where we are headed than by coming together across all the different crafts, trades and shops for a fun relaxed day.
We will have burgers, dogs, vegan options, prizes, games, a dunk tank and an empty cooler if you want to BYOB. We have included a copy of the flier for the event. (It can be found online at https://bit.ly/PicnicFlier21)
Please distribute far and wide among your membership and close community partners as well. We want a huge turn out to celebrate labor and each other!
This event is being sponsored by IBEW 379 RENEW but donations to help pay for food, tee shirts, and activities are welcome. Any left-over funds will be donated to the NC AFL-CIO Victory Fund.
If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact Melissa Reyes about the specifics. Checks can be made out and mailed to: IBEW LU-379, 1900 Cross Beam Drive, Charlotte, NC. Please write “Labor Day Picnic” in the subject line. Don’t forget!
Let all your members know, and we will see you at the Labor Day Family Picnic on Monday, September 6th, Nevin Community Park, Charlotte, NC 28216 from 10:00am-2:00pm.
