We would like to take part in PAINT THE TOWN-BOISE this year on the weekend of June 9. We need at least 10 volunteers, but obviously the more we have, the better! If this is something you’d like to help us out with, shoot an email to email@example.com and we will get you on the list. This is a very easy way for us to get us out into the community, and help elderly people who really need it! Thanks everyone!
Here is your WAY TOO EARLY notification of the 2018 Members and Retirees summer picnic! It will be June 22nd from 4p-9p at Julius Kleiner Park in Meridian.
More info to come, but we figured we’d start getting the word out now so you can mark your calendars.
I’ve been asked alot lately if I know how to get a copy of the contract. In the past the company has sent hard copies of the contract to us at our request. Because the *new* contract was more or less just an extention, they aren’t offering them.
So…. here is a link to a PDF version of the contract for y’all to keep a hold of. Let me know if you have further questions!
As we discussed in the meeting this week, there has been quite a few of our brothers and sisters’ family members passing lately. Today I got a note from one of those members with a request to send to all of you!
From Jolene Eagleman: My mom and I want to thank all of you so much for the flowers and all of the well wishes we have received during this time of loss for our family. We appreciate all of you very much!
Hey everyone, hope your week is going great, and I hope you have big plans for the weekend! I personally have already mowed my lawn this week…. I know, I’m weird.
Ok, to the business at hand: Last year we put out a show of interest for anyone wanting to be involved in the many member committees we have available. While we filled in the spots, there has been some turnover, and we really never pushed to get these committees started.
Now that things are returning to normal (turnover in webmaster, president on sabbatical, and whatever it is that Jason does….), we are ready to get all of our committees active!
Click here to see what committees we have available, and if you’re interested, just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! We will be jumping on this soon, so please be sure to let us know ASAP.
Just a quick reminder to all of ya…. This month’s meeting has been moved to THIS COMING TUESDAY, March 13.
Due to most of our executive board being at District Conference in Denver, we moved the meeting up a week to make sure it still happens.
So, stay safe out there this weekend, and we hope to see you all on the 13th!
Are you, or someone in your immediate family looking for some scholarship funds to help with this upcoming school year? We have an opportunity for our union brothers and sisters that we would like to make you aware of!

This valuable scholarship program is made possible by the funding of CWA locals. So good luck if you want to give it a shot!
It is with great sadness we are sharing the news of the passing of a long time member. Our Outside Tech VP Jason had this to share: She was a good friend to a lot of us…and good tech too… Some of your peers may have known her, so if you don’t mind please pass on to the peers around you.
You can find a tribute for Martha by clicking here. Our condolences to her family, and our brothers and sisters who knew her.
