Annual Barbecue and send-off for Brian!

JMA was delighted to continue our annual summer tradition of hosting a barbecue for everyone at our building this afternoon.  This year  was extra poignant as outgoing president of CUPE Local 503 and longtime friend of JMA, Brian Madden, began a well-earned retirement this summer!  We were happy Brian was able to make it out for our event and to keep him from getting slothful in his post-presidential years, we made him cut the cake.   We wish everyone a happy final few weeks of summer and look forward to a productive fall of fighting the good fight!
