Local 27 retirees attend annual lunch

Local Lodge 27 held a reunion for its retirees Aug. 4 at the union’s hall in St. Louis. Members traveled from as far away as Arizona and Florida to attend the 19th annual luncheon.

Welcoming this year’s attendees were Local 27 Business Manager and Secretary-Treasurer David Snead, President Donald Thurmond, and Vice President William Noll. Sixty-two retirees attended the event, receiving such gifts as a Local 27 polo shirt, hat, and commemorative knife. Attendance prizes were also awarded, including one for the oldest Boilermaker there.

Following the luncheon, BM-ST Snead presented membership pins to 22 of the retirees, ranging from 25 to 65 years of service.
