Gospel singing is a mighty powerful thing. Amen.

On a cold, rainy afternoon last Sunday, an overflow crowd got their praise on at Local 8888’s Annual Gospel Extravaganza. The concert helps to boost solidarity and the spiritual strength of union members and their families.

Thanks go to all of the talented performers, the hard-working volunteers and the Special Events Committee that did such a good job organizing this outstanding event.

Pray for Paris. Pray for Peace.

The shock of the terrible tragedy in Paris has ricocheted around the world and brought people together to support the French in their grief. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of this horrific crime.

Wishing everyone and their family a blessed and safe Thanksgiving.
