Honoring Our Vets
L-R: Kim Rice, Local 714; U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-5th); and Bill Tyszka, Council 4 Retirees.
The hard working men and women of Council 4 took time out of their busy schedules to honor America’s heroes during our 11th annual Veterans Picnic May 24 at the State Veterans Home in Rocky Hill.
“This picnic is an opportunity to celebrate the freedoms we have as Americans, thanks to the brave women and men who gave their lives to protect those freedoms,” said Steve Curran of Local 1565, a Council 4 Executive Board member and Chair of the Veterans Committee. “It’s not about the food or the salad or even the laughter, it is about standing in solidarity to honor America’s heroes.”
Local 2930's Colleen Cole, standing (in blue shirt), helped serve Veterans at our picnic.
With nearly 300 in attendance, Council 4 members continued to raise awareness of, and call for improvements to, the services and the quality of life of all veterans living across the country.
