HOLIDAY LIGHTS PARADE
We have begun with the building, for our first time, a float for the XCEL ENERGY HOLIDAY LIGHTS PARADE to be held in downtown Fargo Tuesday, November 25th.  We would like to thank those that are volunteering their time and effort  in this endeavor. A special thank you to Frank Zuber for getting this all started, with out the combined efforts of our members this could not happen.  If you would like to assist in any way with this project give the Hall a call.  Assistance will be needed from our members in the finishing of this project and we will also be needing  walkers in the parade to hand out all the goodies.
Hello Brothers and Sisters,
 
  The design of the float is completed. Now we are looking for volunteers to set-up the float and add lights on the trailer. Float set-up will be held Sunday, November 23rd at 11:30 a.m. at Fargo's JATC Training Center. The Parade of Lights is on Tuesday, November 25th at 6:30 p.m. Float line up is at 5:00 p.m.
  If you haven't had a chance to volunteer yet, this is a perfect opportunity to help out. We need all the man power we can get. Keep in mind we will be setting up the float outside, so dress for weather. There will be hot food and a place to warm up.
  If you want to be on the float or in the parade, let me know and I will give the details.
Thanks,
Brother Frank

One of the most important labor quotes was given by Samuel Gompers, first president of the American Federation of Labor, around 1892. Samuel was asked, "what does labor want?" His reply was not widely read or appreciated.

"What do we want? More schoolhouses and less jails; more books less arsenals; more learning, less crime; more leisure, less greed; more justice, less revenge; in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures."

Gompers' quote speaks to the hope and aspirations of what we now call the "American Dream." It explains the "WHY" of organized labor. It speaks to the values we all hold dear.
