The JATC will be conducting it’s annual budget proposal meeting on Monday the 6th and will thereby be closed between 10 am and Noon. This is a critical meeting for us to review this past year’s budget and calculate additional increases for the 2018-2019 budget year. This proposal must first be presented to the JATC Committee for review before being sent to the JATC Trustees for their next scheduled quarterly meeting in February. This will give them time to review it in time for our Fiscal year which begins on April 1st. Please bear with us on Monday during this time.

If anyone cannot make it to Brother Dave Evans memorial being put on by his family at the Hall this Saturday (29 July) at 2:00 pm and you would like for me to mention anything on your behalf, please let me know and I will read it out loud for you. It is always a sad time when we lose one of our Brothers or Sisters that did so much for our Local, but family members like to hear our fun and humorous stories of how their loved one touched our lives. Rest in peace my Brother and I am sure you are raising a big ole fuss about non-union workers doing the plumbing up in heaven this week!
