MEMBERS THE NEXT LOCAL MEETING IS TUESDAY, APRIL
2 AT 7 P.M. LOCATED AT 1513 PAULSEN ST.
Thanks to Local 115 for having a handful of our brothers come down
and help with the Jacksonville Auto Show. We appreciate the work and the call. On the same note thanks to the brothers
that took the time to work the auto show, you are what makes us a great local
Brothers & Sisters work safety is the new hot topic. Steel-toed / tipped
shoes are the new standard of footwear our members must adopt as part of their "uniform". I cannot stress enough how important
it is to have your feet protected. Not to mention, it is a work standard in our business. You can pick-up steel-toes
at Kmart for as little as $35.00. At Uniforms by Patrick or Red-Wing (where you get 10% off if you show your Union card) you
can find boots for anywhere from $50-$200. There are several other industrial stores around town, where you go and how
much you pay, depends on how much you love your feet and what your pocket can bear. We do not endorse our members shopping
at Sears and Wal-mart (they are not union friendly). Please get out and find some foot protection, do it for safeties
Thanks to all the brothers and sister who came together to make
the last couple weeks happen. Titanic, Copperfield and the BB & T thing were all very successful thanks to this Local.
If I haven't said it before, I'll say it now, y'all rock.

Thank you Trades and Labor Assembly of Savannah, and CLC President Brett Hulme. The turn-out and show of support was beyond
anything we could have imagined. We saw representation from over 20 different trade locals. Your support brought confidence

in my leadership for the last year. Whatever happens with this theatre know that you are hands down the best Savannah has
MEMBERS our quarterly stamps have increased in price to $50 per quarter. Please make a note of it
Great job on Penn & Teller. Penn, Teller and their road crew mentioned their appreciation for such a good local crew

In review of the past year I want to take this time, yet again, to express my pride in this Union. We are truly on the road
to success here in Savannah. We are a working Local with jobs being contracted, referrals being made, all jobs are being paid
(most in a timely fashion), and we are growing. We have had repeat business from several Employers that have been extremely
happy with our performance on past jobs. Our hall is coming around, with the lights and phone service being turned on. We
have had donations of furniture to make the seating at the hall comfortable. We have Brothers donating their time to revitalize
"our" hall. We are listed in the yellow pages. We have this web-site. We are members of the Savannah Trades and
Labor Council, aka the Savannah CLC. Soon we will have our first multi year contract in a Savannah venue. We are strong. We
are proud. We are UNION.
Thanks to all the Brothers and Sisters that came together as one to help the London City Opera open "The Merry Widow"
on the 6th of January. The hours were unusually long and at times trying but we persevered and succeeded. Many compliments
from the London crew and the Production Manager Peter Smith. Keep up the good work!
ANY MEMBER 2 OR MORE QUARTERS IN ARREARS WILL BE EXPELLED AT THIS MEETING UNLESS DUES ARE PAID. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU MAY BE
AT RISK YOU NEED TO CALL BRO. CHARLES LEVALLE IMMEDIATELY
Those of you that received the Lucas letter need to attend the next local meeting (see the top of this page), there are several
sections to that letter that are false and others that are outright lies, I want to dispel those inaccuracies at the meeting.
Personally, they don't even know enough about our organization to give an accurate account of our wants and desires. If any
of you have any questions about this drive I want you to contact me immediately. 912.507.8558. I want to see 100% of the votes
cast on voting day cast UNION YES!
In solidarity -Wayne
Great job to all the Brothers that worked the "First Night" celebration. We all worked together to make sound and
light happen in the most professional fashion. What a great way to end the year
