Thursday, February 8th, 2024, at 10:30am we will get together at the Union Office to sign Valentines for Veterans. These valentines will be taken to the Midwest Veteran’s Closet to be distributed at the Lovell Veterans Hospital. All you need to do is show up with your best handwriting. We will supply the valentines and pens, light snacks and beverages. We are planning to be finished by noon. Why not grab some of your retired friends and plan a lunch outing afterwards.
SAVE THE DATES:
Saturday, June 15th, 2024, at 5:35pm we are heading to the Kenosha Kingfish baseball game. We have a block of tickets in the reserved stadium area. The $16 per person cost includes admission, a hot dog, chips, a soda, and a fireworks show after the game. (See flyer here for ordering details!). This activity is open to all LCFT union members and their whole families.
NEWS YOU CAN USE
Election season is upon us once again. National elections begin with the primaries. Illinois’ primary date is March 19th, 2024, and Wisconsin’s date is April 2nd, 2024. Of course the major presidential election is in the fall on November 5th, 2024. The LCFT PAC met virtually (due to weather) on January 17th, 2024, to make our recommendations for Lake County candidates to the IFT. Watch for the IFT’s recommended endorsements.
This year is also an election cycle for LCFT officers and for the Retirees Council officers. As you may remember, our newest bylaws sync our Retirees Council election cycle with Local 504’s three-year cycle. Therefore, our current officers’ terms end in June. Watch for nomination and election information. Elections will be electronic, so make sure we have your current membership information and correct email address. Only current members can vote. If you know someone who has let their membership lapse it’s not too late to renew. Contact the Union Office at 847-623-7725 to have a membership form sent out.
