Member to Member Benefit Monthly Total

January 2018, Local Lodge 1045 helped 2 members by hosting Dinner Benefits. We raised a total of $1549.20!

Member Spotlight COMING SOON…

In the next few weeks I will be around with a Quesionaire to be filled out. When I pick up the completed questionaire from you I will get a quick photo as well.

This is to be a fun way to get to know one another, especially to know who your stewards, or officers are. Several of our senior members have come from an union household, We want to hear their story as well.

If you know of anyone I need to get on my list for sure please email, or let me know through our facebook page, so I make sure to get their story!

Honoring Veterans

Local Lodge 1045 worked with Pay It Forward Always to hand out roses to all Veterans on Veterans Day, November 11th 2017.

Roses were handed out after Veterans enjoyed a free breakfast provided by Hy-Vee in Algona.

LL 1045 would like to thank all our veterans for your service and sacrifice!

Member of LL1045: Tami F., Amanda W., & Gwen T.
