Some 50 union women turned out for a day of fellowship, food and fun at IBEW Local 1 in St. Louis Aug. 5 for a social gathering to celebrate sisterhood.
The event featured raffles, live music and even a little dancing. A massage therapist was also on hand, demonstrating fun stretches and self-healing techniques.
IBEW Local 1 electrician Stacey Bonuso coordinated the event and called it a huge success. She said several female electricians used to meet on a regular basis years ago, which gave her the idea for the gathering.
“I was really happy with the turnout for our first year, and everyone had a great time,” she said. “We’ve already set a date next year for the event.”
The 2018 Sisterhood Celebration will be Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Local 1 union hall.
