Local 1907 held its annual members and family picnic at the Scandinavian Community center in Burnaby on Saturday, July 13. Members enjoyed family fun, BBQ, and – thanks to the generosity Local 1907’s sponsors – everyone got to take home a prize! Thank you to the volunteers who helped facilitate the picnic and ensure it ran smoothly. Over one hundred people came out. Thank you all for attending!
At the event, Brother Al Narcisse was made the recipient of this year’s Local 1907 Doug Urquhart Humanitarian Award. Al exemplifies the spirit of the award, showing dedication and commitment to mentoring and training the next generation of carpenters. Al has been very involved with, and is an excellent ambassador for, the Union on our First Nations training and employment initiatives.
