It was a great day to come out to celebrate and have some food and family fun at our Member Appreciation Picnic this year. We got very lucky as the weather was perfect at the Alameda County Fair Grounds.
There was a raffle with over a dozen great prizes, hamburgers and hot dogs with all the sides, face painting, and a magician for the kids and willing adults.
We were also privileged to have two special guests: Western Region Vice President Peter Finn and national Teamster star Lindsay Dougherty.
“It was a good day to just celebrate our Teamster community and say welcome back, sisters and brothers,” said Secretary-Treasurer Steve Beck. “The work we all do together, our staff, Business Agents, Trustees, involved members, it’s all vital work, and it benefits not just members but also other workers who don’t have the support of a Union. I don’t think the day could have been better, and it was just fun to celebrate our bond.”
