What's New at IUEC 10
Veterans Day, Tuesday November 11, 2014
Tuesday November 11, 2014 is Veterans Day and yes, it is a Holiday for the field.  The Local #10 Union Hall will also be closed on this day.  A big Thank You to all our armed forces members of yesterday, today and tomorrow.  We would not be the great country that we are without these men and women.
What a Day

What a day! The weather was great and the turnout numbers were just as wonderful.  I have been told, by numerous members, that the Toy Show and BBQ were a HUGE SUCCESS!! By looking at the pictures, it looks like everyone had a great time.  I would like to thank a few people for going above and beyond the call of duty.  As always, thank you so much to Mrs. Virginia Geib for the great pictures.  There is now a photo album in the Photo Gallery for this event.  Mr. Brett Horton and his dad, Daryll made some really great meat on their "travel with us" grill.  The chicken, beef, oysters, and crabs were all very tasty. Seems that there were very little "left overs."  Thank you to Mike and Dorthy Watson for making arrangements for the crabs and oysters.  The crabs, I hear, were the biggest hit of all.

This event keeps getting a little larger every year.  I hope, next year, the numbers get even bigger.  This is a great way to have a little fun time with the membership and their families.

Meet Dalton

Everyone meet Dalton.  He is the step son of brother Roger Pirner.  Dalton is one of the bravest and strongest 15 year olds I have ever had the pleasure to bring to anyones attention.  This young man has been fighting for his life for the past year.  Just before his 14th birthday, he was diagnosed with a very rare tumor, Desmoplstic Small Round Cell Tumor (DSRCT).  This form of cancer is very rare and very aggressive.  There is not yet a cure.  Dalton has tried numerous treatments and numerous research studies to no avail.  Doctors have urged Roger and his wife to bring Dalton home and let him spend his remaining time with family and friends.  I am telling you this because Dalton is not on our Union insurance.  The family bills have mounted in trying to find a cure.  Dalton was going out of state for some of these treatments.  There is a fund that has been set up to help Dalton and his family with expenses.  On the left hand side of this website, under Action Center, you will find a link to Daltons website.  If you would like to help, please click and donate.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dalton and his family.  We pray that, maybe, God will allow for a miracle for this young man.

  Words of Wisdom  

The true soldier fights, not because he/she hates what is in front of him/her, but because he/she LOVES what is behind him/her.  GOD bless all of our men and women in the Armed Forces, and the families who await their return.  Thank you for your service, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
