We are still working on the details, but reservations have been made for a picnic this summer at Lake Samish!  We want to make this a fun family event so any member who is interested in assisting with the planning, please give us a call - we would love to have your help! 

A Teamster Line

One hundred years ago, Teamsters and their co-workers (horses) took a picture along what is today, Champion and Railroad streets in Bellingham. 

Thanks to all who joined us on Sunday, September 14, 2014 in recreating the picture complete with two horses brought by Trustee, Brian Schols who works at Waste Management!  Although we have members at Whatcom Builders, Kyle Maneval is a Laborer and was instrumental in obtaining permission from the City for the picture as he provided the street closure service.
