Thank you, Machinists Lodge 737!
Last Saturday, about 30 union members came to our St. Paul office with some helpful family members in tow. They dove right in to get our basement construction-ready. ripping out carpet and disposing old furniture.
They also worked outside, cleaning up vines, the small (hard-to-reach!) space between our building and its neighbor, our lawn and even repaired our fence. Inside, the group cleaned up office space and organized files, removing cubicles to make way for a brand new infant/baby room for private Supervised Visitation.
In addition to their great work, they presented us with a brand new flat screen television and board/card games for adolescents visiting their parents. Thank you, Lodge 737 for your enthusiastic support!
