A message from Cheryl Bushee, President of the UFCW Local 328 Retirees Club:
In February, I had the honor of being elected as President of the UFCW Local 328 Retirees Club. I would like to thank Derek Andersen, who has been President since 2001, for his service to the club as President and continued service as Vice-President. I am following his footsteps and the footsteps of Presidents before him who have worked very hard to lead the retirees of Local 328 in a club that is sociable and informative.
UFCW Local 328 Retirees Club has been in existence for 30 years. Our goal is to foster fraternal ties among UFCW members and UFCW retirees. The members who have been in the club since the inception have been a vital asset to the UFCW movement. They were the ones who fought hard to pave the way for current members. We need to respect and honor the dedication these retired members had and continue to keep this club a vital part of UFCW Local 328. The only way that can happen is by enlisting new retirees to the group.
When you retire you will receive information about the club. Meetings are held at 1:00 PM on the 2nd Monday of each month (except for July and August) and are held at the UFCW Local 328 Union Hall, 278 Silver Spring Street, Providence, Rhode Island. Club dues are a minimal – only 15.00 per year. Your spouse is also welcomed to join for an additional $15.00.
In 2017 we had many events. We were lucky enough to have a guest speaker who addressed protecting our assets. We also had a Valentine Luncheon, Boston Bay Brunch Cruise, Davenports Luncheon, Newport Playhouse Luncheon and Cabaret Show, Halloween Luncheon and our fabulous Christmas Party.
Other benefits as a member include UFCW free college for an Associate’s Degree program for you or family members, member discounts, scholarships (children/grandchildren) and discounted rate to golf in the UFCW Local 328 Charitable Golf Tournament.
Please pass this information on to any member who will be retiring. If you have any questions about the UFCW Local 328 Retirees Club, call me at 401-861-0300 extension 14.
Remember – Retire from work – not from life.
