VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We are in need of volunteers to do some phone banking from now until election day.  Andrew from the ND AFL-CIO has times set up on Tuesdays so far from 6-8, Thursdays may be an option also.

Our nights and weekends are precious and are very much appreciated when given the cause of electing labor friendly candidates. This election is probably one of the most important of our time. There are a lot of important issues affecting working families at stake and with historical low voter turn out in the midterm elections we simply need our people to get out and vote.  So if you can volunteer a little time to the labor cause, if you cannot consider helping a labor friendly candidate with a contribution. At the very least please remember to vote on November 4th.

Contact me for dates or times you can help 701-412-8932,  in the future we will also do some door knocking with those times and dates to come.

GOLF TOURNAMENT WINNERS

We had a good turn out this year, more then last year anyway. We would like to thank those that helped out during the event. We had Ray Peda, Keith Wickstrom, Kevin Dahlen and Glenn Korynta insuring none of are members went thirsty. Keith Swenson manned the grill cooking up all the good eats after a long day of golf at the Hillsboro Park. We also want to give a special thank you to Tim Hughes for setting up all the arrangements for this event.

The skills contest winners were Derek Sondreal for longest put, Ben Haarstad won longest drive and closest to the pin.

The team the won this years golf tournament (Ben Haarstad, Derek Sondreal, Jim Kurtz, Greg Hoveland) had a score of 64 after 18 holes, that is 6 under par.

We also want to thank those that brought their families to the park after the tournment. It is always nice to have the families participate, it gives us a gentle reminder of the importance of Solidarity and Brotherhood.

Thank you all!!
