The Missouri Alliance for Retired Americans is hosting a Town Hall Meeting and Barbecue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, at IAM Lodge 837 Hall, 212 Utz Lane in Hazelwood.
In addition to the opportunity to enjoy good food and discussions in the company of friends, there is important work to do.
Everyone planning to attend is being asked to write a letter to their state representative asking that they uphold Gov. Nixon’s veto of HB 116 (the right-to-work bill). Tell them what RTW would mean to your job, your paycheck and your family, and ask them to vote “No” on a veto override. Attendees should bring their letters, along with letters from friends and neighbors, to the barbecue, where they will be collected, stamped and mailed.
Letters should include your name, address, zip code and signature.
Attendees are also encouraged to design a post or banner celebrating the 80th anniversary of Social Security. The winning design will receive a prize and have their poster or banner used throughout the state over the next year.
