Local 913 marched in the 1st Annual Juneteenth Parade down Market Street last weekend June 10th. The event has been happening for 50 years but this is the fist year it went down Market Street. DC16 was at the front of the Parade thanks to VAC coordinator La Jeana Thompson. Her son won Mr. Juneteenth in his age group and was on a float leading the parade with the other winners. We hope to have an even bigger turn out next year and hope to see all that attend.

Parades are a great way to get your family and friends VAC credit and now with three parades: Saint Patrick’s, Caesar Chavez and Juneteenth, it’s easier than ever to get the 3 credits required to be invited to the VAC Banquet. Check out photos from the parade, we even got on the News!



Congratulations to all of the Local 487 members who took home prizes from the raffle at this year’s STAR Event. Special congratulations to Fermin Guzman who took home the Chevy Malibu. Don’t forget to keep your certifications up to date. You can find all upcoming classes at the DC 16 STAR website  PAINTERS- Don’t […]
