Just over one week ago nearly 1,000 people took part in a celebration for the ages at the Metropolitan Ballrroom of the Sheraton Times Square. The evening's guests - members and friends of Sheet Metal Workers' Local Union 28 - realized it was a great gift to attend a special, historic, centennial gala within their own trade group. Clearly, joy and pride flooded the room for the accomplishments of the Sheet Metal Workers' Local Union 28. Admiration for the honorees brought dinner guests to several standing ovations. Respect and gratitude for the union were also evident - as was much camaraderie among co-workers and friends.
Honorees and special guests included Gary LaBarbera, James Castellane, Jay Badame, Nicholas Maldarelli and Arthur R. Moore (posthumously).
Congratulations to Dinner Chairman and Local Union 28 President, Kevin Connors, Dinner Co-chairs Victor Gany and Jeff Porrello, the Officers, Executive Board, Union Trustees, Warden, Conductor and 100th Anniversary Dinner Committee, and the many business partners and sponsors. It was a privilege to witness your accomplishments and spirit.
The Welcome Gallery (as part of Boost Enterprises®) was privileged to provide photographic services for the dinner. Lester Millman joined us to provide additional photographic talent to the dinner event.
