Do you have 3?

Posted December 1, 2023

Brothers and Sisters,

Local 1237’ Annual Christmas Meeting will be held this Tuesday December 5, 2023, at 6:00 pm. I hope you will attend and help celebrate another year in the books.

With 2023 coming to a close I would like to take the time to remind you that if you are looking for a VAC event to qualify before the end of the year, there are several VAC’s on the calendar for December

The STAR’s class schedule for January through June 2024 is now on the STAR’s website and classes will go fast. This month in your Christmas card you will receive a Local 1237 calendar card for 2024. It lists all holidays, DDO’s and meeting nights. I would like to take this time to thank the Local 1237 Executive Board for all their hard work, help guiding the local in the right direction and for always doing what’s best for the local. In my job duties I run the day-to-day operations but not without their guidance and input. I would also like to thank our Admins Junnie Gutierrez and Annette Fejeran, because without them the office would be in a world of hurt. In closing I would like to thank the members for another great year and for having the faith in me to represent you. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in 2024.
