We would like to thank the members, merchants and contractors who are giving selflessly to a disable veteran and his family living in Adrian. The opportunity came when we were made aware of this soldier’s need for a complete plumbing upgrade by Chris Wright and the Capitol Area United Way. Our apprentices, Adam Hatfield, Jacob Allen, and Dylan McCann, has worked diligently to get the job done. Retiree’s Kyle Ehinger pulled a 10 hour shift, and Dave Rudd also showed up to lend his moral support. Many thanks to Prime Mechanical’s owner Brain Marion who donated his crew Joe Loring, Rick Jehnson, and apprentice Brandon Snyder for helping with this project. Thank you to Peerless Supply for the materials and Adrian Mechanical for the supplies and tools that they have donated also. Local 333 would like to give a very special thank you to Eric Ehinger for helping Terry Potts put this project together. GREAT JOB GUYS!!! This project is ongoing, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to help a family in need.
