Members, As our year comes to an end, I'd like to take a minute and thank you all for a great year in solidarity. We have overcome many obstacles and have witnessed many hard times, but we have stood together through it all and supported each other. I look forward to what 2018 has to bring to our work group and I'm always open to suggestions on how to make our local reach its fullest potential. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year. In solidarity, Carli Meneses, President
