BUSINESS MANAGER BOB WARD
NEW BUSINESS OFFICE & TRUST OFFICE LOCATION
At the time of this writing (7/16) we are getting real close to our move date but still not quite there yet. Believe me when I say, when we do make the move it will be definitely worth the wait. I believe Local 340 members will be proud of this new building for many, many years to come. Just keep watching your mail for the final announcement!
LABOR DAY PICNICS
Sacramento CLC Picnic will be held on Monday September 3, 2018 from 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM at William Land Park – Inside Fairytale Town.
Redding’s Picnic will be held at Anderson River Park starting at 11:00 AM on September 3, 2018.
Show your Union support and stop by if you are in the area to enjoy some family fun.
PREPARING TO RETIRE – SAVE THE DATE – 11/03/18
On the morning of Saturday November 3rd the Local and the Trust Office will be sharing a day at the new Hall in Rancho Cordova in order to offer Local 340 members information on all of our current pension plans. There will be speakers from each organization who will summarize the plans and answer all of your questions. Spouses and significant others are encouraged to attend this event with you. Whether you are retiring in the next few years, or 20 years from now, take advantage of this “Get Ready to Retire” Seminar now. More information will be forthcoming in the next few months, but if you want to sign up now, call Reyna at the Hall with your name and contact phone number and then save the date!

Fliers have been mailed announcing this annual event. Please be sure to return them by Friday, August 17th to be entered for the Grand Prize. You will notice the menu has changed and we are happy to announce that Brother Jim Perryman has volunteered to make his famous chili for chili dogs.
If you attend any continuing ed classes out of our area, be sure to submit that information to our JATC so that your records can be updated.
Brother Tim “TA” Avila was injured in a car accident and is home recuperating from a fractured neck. He appreciates the well wishes he has received from the members and hopes to be back to work soon. Get better soon TA.
Brother Miguel Martinez was very seriously injured in a car accident and remains in intensive care. Prayers are appreciated for this young man.
Brother Steven VanZandt wants the members to know that “Yes he was in a motorcycle accident, but he was not injured”. His bike, however, is another story.
Office Manager Patty Paterson is still recuperating at home from her Memorial Day fall and is very appreciative of the support she has received from the members of Local 340. She is currently looking forward to undergoing, hopefully, the last surgery on one of her arms, in order that she can return to work.
REST IN PEACE
I am very sorry to report on the passing of Brother Donald D Greene – 59 year member / 80 years of age. No services planned at this time.
