Teamsters Local 179 held their 10th Annual Membership Picnic on Saturday, August 10th. 

Over 750 attendees enjoyed great food, drinks, music and a photo booth and popcorn wagon as well as a face painter, two inflatable water slides and jump houses for the kids. 

Once again, Attorney Jim Ridge of Ridge & Downes provided the incredible raffle prizes.  The 38 raffle prizes included Lego sets, bicycles, scooters, remote control toys, American Girl dolls, a doll house, drones, Air Pods, bluetooth speakers, an XBox One S, a cooler, as well as seven televisions with the grand prize being a 65" UHD television.  Jim also provided the gift card prizes for the first and second place beanbag tournament winners.  "Jim is a great friend of Local 179 and we greatly appreciate his generosity as well as the professional legal services he provides for our members," said President Tom Flynn.  President Flynn awarded Jim a plaque acknowledging his support and generosity over the years.

"A special thank you to Teamsters Joint Council 25 President Terrence J. Hancock for attending and addressing the membership.  His kind words were greatly appreciated," said President Flynn.  We would also like to express our appreciation to Teamsters Joint Council 25 for the use of their semi and tents.

"I would also like to thank the staff of Local 179 and all of the volunteers who work so hard to make our annual membership picnic a success," said President Flynn.
