September 2021

Dear brothers and sisters:
What a rollercoaster ride we have been on! Earlier this month your Executive board and I were planning a meeting for all of us in September. This was brought on by the VEBA people wanting to go over changes to our coverage. Since the then, the region, after seeing the mutated Delta version coming our way, sent a letter saying to go by the CDC recommendations. The VEBA people canceled the next day, so we are also canceled. They said they would send postcards to everyone to let them know that they will be working on a way to set up a zoom or conference call so we can all get in on it and thus deal with questions we might have. I have spoken with Kelly a few times so I asked her to give me a clue on what changes we could expect.  She said they would all be good ones, so I was pretty pleased.
I send Apologies to all I called, texted, E-mailed or those who went on our face page. I hope I got the new word out to all about the canceled meeting. It’s hard to say just how much we all rely on you members. You are our local’s influencers, since the meeting was to be before the paper came out. We really need you all to get the word out. I thank you and the local thanks you. You know we will continue to keep in touch.
On to the Facebook page reemerging after so long. Thanks go to Doug Fox of the Labor News who spent two hours working on it after our officers had given it the old college try. Facebook has no tech support to help you with any problems. You cannot even communicate with them. Even if talking to you could help them find weakness in their own systems. I learn of that in the news about some of their users getting hacked. The hacker then took over the real user’s page! Still no communicating!
You can always get hold of me though, so let me know if I can help, glad to talk any time. You know the answering machine is on and ready to have you leave a message. I always need your help keeping me updated with the latest obituaries. Please cut out the obits you see for the scrap book or you can try to text me, I’m trying to get better at that.
Remember to fight the virus not our friends or family. Get the vaccine shot, get the booster if needed, and wash your hands often, were a mask in crowds, keep safe I want to see you next year or as soon as I can. OBITS Wanda Jean Conner, Billy L Jenkins, Kenneth Raymond Fairman, Frederick Charles Kuntz and Jill Ann (Meyers) Barner
