We want all our members to pass along their favorite recipes. We are putting together a Local 735 Retiree cookbook, and Donna Hogue is in charge of gathering the recipes and putting the cook book together. We know there are a bunch of great cooks out there, you have all those family recipes, and we have a bunch of men who like to cook, bake or barbeque, so lets share with all our sisters and brothers and let them enjoy what we have enjoyed for years.
You can give your recipes to anyone on the Executive Board and we will make sure Donna gets them. Thank you Donna for taking this assignment on.
Bricks of Memories from the plant.
We have been asked by a number of our members if they could obtain a brick from our old Powertrain Hydra-Matic plant to keep as a souvenir.
Sterling Mullins has been in charge of this task and is keeping a list of members who are interested in getting one. Sterling has been in touch with the company that is doing the demolition and as of 2-12-2014, they are holding 2 pallets of bricks for us, that we can pick up when the weather cooperates with us. We are working on arrangements to distribute the bricks to everyone and when we finalize it we will be announcing at the meetings and on this website.
Contact Sterling if you want a brick or know of someone who would like a brick.
