Thanks to all who made 2013 a great year.

Together, we brought the chapter back from a long deep sleep, passed by laws, elected officers, held regular well attended meetings, and participated in rallies and activities with other retirees and active union members.
A special thanks to the officers and staff at the Local for their support and assistance, and to their counterparts at District 1 and the International, who helped us bring our chapter into the 21st century.
