Event Set for 5:30 p.m. at Red River Theatres in Concord
Next Tuesday, Nov. 22, you’re invited to join us at Red River Theatres in Concord for a celebration of our members’ efforts during the election cycle.
The free event, which will begin at 5:30 p.m., will include time to mingle, a short program with light refreshments and a screening of the documentary “Forgotten Farms.”
“This is a celebration of the work we did during this election season, regardless of the outcome,” said SEA/SEIU Local 1984 President Rich Gulla. “There were some disappointments, but there’s also a lot to celebrate. We had 13 members — both Republican and Democrat — elected to the Legislature, and that’s something we can all be proud of.”
Our members knocked on thousands of doors around the state and made thousands more phone calls in support of our endorsed candidates up and down the ballot. In addition, this year more members than ever before stepped up to run for political office.
President Gulla said that while we have a lot of work ahead of us, the event on Tuesday will be an opportunity to relax, unwind and enjoy the company of your fellow union members.
“Regardless of party affiliations and who you voted for, we’re all still one union and we hope you’ll join us on Tuesday,” Gulla said.
“Forgotten Farms” examines the struggles of modern dairy farmers — the film’s producers note that New England alone has lost more than 10,000 dairy farms in the last 50 years — through conversations with farmers and policy experts. The film won “Best of the Fest” at the recent Somewhat North of Boston Film Festival.
If you’d like to join us, we’ll need you to RSVP to Laurie Gordon at the SEA/SEIU Local 1984 office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 271-3411, ext. 100. Seating is limited, so please reach out as soon as possible.
