More accolades for your newsletter The Ledger

Over the last 16 years I have been privileged to be the editor of your local lodge newsletter, The Ledger. During that time The Ledger has been honored with numerous awards from both the International Labor Communications Association, and from our own IAM Communications Department. Pictured is the latest award and the last one to be received under my editorship.

None of these awards could not have been possible without the dedication to the IAM ideals, of Justice on the Job, Service to the Community, that you, the membership, extol on a daily basis.
