Annual Picnic
The local union annual picnic will be held on Saturday, August 4th, 2018 at Sunset Lakes Resort! This is a wonderful family event that continues to get better & better every year with the help of the Picnic Committee & our Volunteers. There is so much to do that you will want to be there from the beginning to the end of the event. There will be organized games for the kids with prizes for each participant. Adults can challenge each other in a bags tournament or maybe a rolle bolle tournament and win prizes. If that doesn't interest you, then have the family play a round of mini-golf together! There will be plenty of food and beverages throughout most of the day. Plan on attending this GREAT annual event! And remember, we can't have a GREAT event without GREAT help so plan to volunteer!

Breakfast with Santa
Back by request [after a 25+ year absence!] was a Christmas event for the kids of IBEW Local Union #145.  On Saturday, December 16th, 2017 the first annual Breakfast with Santa was held!  As the kids, Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas waited for Santa Claus to arrive, they enjoyed the fresh pancakes, eggs, bacon and sausage being cooked and our wonderful “Elves” [a.k.a. volunteers] keep the serving line well stocked.  When Santa Claus arrived, he was greeted by over a hundred excited children!  They waited in line patiently to sit with Santa Claus, share their secret Christmas wishes, have their picture taken and collect a wrapped toy and candy cane!  Children of all ages participated in a coloring contest and Toys R Us gift cards were awarded to the winners.  If you missed the first annual Breakfast with Santa you won’t want to miss the second annual Breakfast with Santa tentatively being scheduled for Saturday, December 8th!
