Through the years our Women’s Committee has hosted Women’s Committee Luncheons bringing in dynamic speakers to address guests attending from not only our membership, but also surrounding communities, and sister UAW locals as well as other local unions. They participate in many events such as the Polar Plunge, Relay for Life, etc., raising funds for the American Cancer Society and March of Dimes. They ’Paint the Plant Purple’ in May for Relay and they ‘Paint the Plant Pink’ in October for Breast Cancer Awareness month. And if that’s not enough... they host the annual Easter Egg Hunt for the children!
