L-449 supports special needs group

Shipbuilding lodge reaches out to Sunshine House

LOCAL LODGE 449 (Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin) recently announced that it has engaged with Sunshine House, Inc. to assist with the union’s mailing services. L-449 President Stephen “JR” Bowen said Sunshine House, located in Door County, provides those with special needs and disabilities opportunities to be productive, and the lodge is happy to support that mission.

“The membership of Local 449 believes that community involvement is vital in keeping with the values of being a good union organization and citizen,” he stated.
