August 3rd, 2015 MEETING **NEW LOCATION**

Dear Union Carpenter Sisters & Brothers,

Summer months are here and again we will have our August 3rd meeting at Escape Penthouse in Astoria, Queens.

As you may already know, we will no longer be holding our monthly members meetings at 395 Hudson Street due to Cushman & Wakefield occupying the 10th floor.

We are excited though to bring you to our new Summer Location for July 6th & August 3rd meetings. This place was highly recommended by our very own Juan Gonzalez and will surely be a very nice change in scenery for the warmer months.

Please join us as we will have guest speakers for Emergency Preparedness as well as from our Carpenter Veterans new group NYCDCC US Armed Forces Veterans Alliance.

We will also be raffling off baseball tickets for a September 20th game and making a reservation list for our Third Annual Dinner Boat Cruise.  (Possible change: We may have a Dance instead of Boat.)

Join us at Escape Penthouse
32-72 Steinway St – 6th floor
