Stran Steel Picnic wonderful event

I would like to thank Ernie and Vicky Bragg for caring so much to continue the Stran Steel Picnic event, and all the good food Vicky prepares.

My husband, Bill, thoroughly enjoys it and looks forward to the event every year. He has attended numerous funeral visitations for those who have gone on ahead. To see all those who are still here, enjoy a good meal, lots of laughs and some good old times are simply priceless to him.

I did not work at Stran Steel, but I am a younger union factory worker. There is a bond between workers that seems to last even if the factory doesn’t. For me it renews my beliefs in people to see the camaraderie and bonds they have.

Stran Steel friends, mark your calendars. Next year the date is set for the second Saturday in September at Ft. Harrison VFW shelter. Pass the word on.

Hope to see you there.
