2011 Union Banquet

As request by our new chapter chair (sorry for the delayed post Jesu):

Dear Union Sisters and Brothers,

Have you bought your Union banquet ticket?  (Even if you hate the Greek Islands) Please attend the Friday, May 6th to support our scholars and Distinguished Professor.  As many of you know, Phil Stucky is also retiring this year, and he needs to be honored in a special way.  Tickets are only $12 dollars!  (Do not buy a ticket if you are not attending.  We lose a lot of money if you do not attend because the banquet price is worth far more than the reduced $12.)

In desperate need of scholarship donations!  This year the competition was fierce for the Albert Soglin/McBride Memorial Scholarship.  We chose three candidates; two winners are transferring to a four-year institution this fall.  These scholars are not only excellent students, but are actively involved on campus and in their communities.  They are also in dire financial need.  If you have not donated money, please do so to Jesu Estrada in room 633 (Jesu can be reached at 312-371-3774) or Saed Rihani in room 101.  As we reported in the last newsletter, we have less than $500 in donations.  We know economic times are hard, but these students are fighting insurmountable odds, and they deserve a chance to achieve their academic and career dreams.

Make all checks payable to H.W.C. Local 1600 and memo Albert Soglin Scholarship.

Thank you for your support and generosity.

Jesu Estrada, Chapter-Chair Elect
