|We Make Connecticut Happen|
Thanking Our Veterans

Every Memorial Day weekend, our union holds a picnic to honor veterans living at the state Veterans Hospital in Rocky Hill.
This year marked our seventh consecutive year, and as always, there was plenty of good cheer and good food to go around.
Army veteran Gary Julius Spencer said it best: "I'm having a lovely time." To which Milagro Luna of AFSCME Local 1522 (Bridgeport City and Board of Ed) replied, "We're proud to help out."
Navy veteran David Paczkoski added, "Even after this picnic is over, [we'll] be talking about it for weeks. We appreciate what Council 4 is doing."
L-R: Carol Carney (Retirees Chapter), Navy vet David Paczkoski and Dom Forcella (Local 2836).
