Thank you to the members, active and retired, who attended our holiday parties and the annual awarding of Service Pins for milestone years of service and awarding Journeyman completing their apprenticeship at the end of 2016.
Again, this year, IBEW 104 collected toys for the Toys for Tots campaign. Toys for Tots is a Foundation started by the US Marine Corps in 1995 to provide toys to children who would not otherwise receive them for Christmas. Over its life span, the Marine Toys for Tots Program distributed over 512 million toys to over 237 million less fortunate children and the IBEW is proud to be a part of it.
Our effort this year was another huge success. By our estimation, we have doubled our contributions from 2015. We want to thank every member who participated and give a big thank you to Brother Moyes for volunteering his beautifully decorated home as an additional drop-off location.
2016 was a great year for IBEW Local 104 and with the help from all of you, 2017 will be even better.
