Members and their families enjoyed a beautiful day at the Eighth Annual Teamsters Local 179 Membership Picnic.

Teamsters Local 179 held their Eighth Annual Membership Picnic on Saturday, August 19.  Hundreds of members and their families enjoyed a fun-filled day that included great food, drinks, music provided by Limelight, ice cream provided by Good Humor Dan, popcorn, face painting, water slides, an inflatable castle and more raffle prizes than ever before!

We would like to thank workman’s compensation attorney Jim Ridge of Ridge & Downes, LLC for providing our raffle prizes as well as two $100 and two $50 L.L. Bean gift cards that were awarded to the first and second place winners of the bags tournament.  This year’s raffle prizes included:  seven bicycles, two drones, four iPads, four 32” smart televisions, four 43” smart televisions, two 50” smart televisions, six pairs of Beats wireless headphones, three JBL Flip Four Bluetooth wireless speakers, a Sony Bluetooth speaker, a mini stereo, a Rebel Bluetooth speaker set and a $25.00 L.L. Bean gift card. 

First place winners of this year’s bags tournament was Vick Haase and Brian Manzello.  Second place winners were Adam Wright and Steve Hollis.  Congratulations to everyone.

A very special thank you to all of the volunteers who came out and worked so hard all day long.  And thank you to the Teamsters Local 179 Retirees Club members and their wives for assisting with the popcorn wagon. 

“On behalf of the Executive Board and staff at Local 179 I would like to thank everyone for coming out to make this year’s picnic another big success.  It is always great to be able to talk with our members and meet their families,” said President Tom Flynn.
