Local 97 is sending from the Eastern Division the following members to Puerto Rico to help in the relief effort:
James Vasquez, Nicholas DeMare, Thomas Bovard, Matthew Lee, Eric Fuss, Steven Hoose, James Corcoran, Steven McGovern, Joseph LaCross, and Thomas Fuller.
A special thanks to the Oakwood Avenue Troy Line Group. They donated numerous hours, from Spring thru this Fall, to The Troy Banners Committee to install banners honoring Troy's Veterans on poles throughout the entire city.
LU 97 would also like to thank retiree Tom Laliberte who spent countless hours to help organize this project. Check out the article in the Troy Record and the Banner Committee. -Chuck Milos, IBEW Local 97, Assistant Business Manager East
