Picnic in the Park on Aug. 16

The 2015 AFSCME Family Picnic takes place Sunday Aug. 16 from 1-5 p.m. at the main pavilion of Battle Creek Regional Park in Maplewood. (Map) Members and retirees are invited to bring family, friends, and co-workers to this day of fellowship, food, water, singing, raffles, and more. Organizers provide free burgers, hot dogs, and soft drinks, plus water park admission for the first 100 children. You provide the rest of the fun.


Want to get into the State Fair for free – and share union pride while doing it? Then volunteer at AFSCME’s kiosk at the Minnesota AFL-CIO Labor Pavilion.

A complete list of locations and times for in-person voting, plus details of the tentative agreement, will be posted on Council 5’s website.
