Ulster Next Wave activist revitalize area outside Kingston Library
CSEA members from the Ulster County Local Next Wave Committee took time out of their busy weekends recently for a good cause, teaming up with the police and fire unions from the City of Kingston to repaint an outdoor obstacle course on the sidewalks outside the library.
The timing of the outreach project couldn’t have been better. Children from the greater Kingston community have been participating in summer reading programs at the library. Now those children can utilize the repainted hopscotch course and other obstacle course games.
Thanks to the CSEA volunteers taking part in this day of outreach: Sheri Farrell, Tina Buono, Jeanne Edwards, Chris Gillespie, Kirk Jones, Tally Fisher, Tom Kellner, Tom Schembri, Nicole Samuel, Linda Edmundson.
Orange County Unit President receives Labor Award
Congratulations to Orange County Unit President Denise Fuchs, who received the Mother Jones Award at the 2022 Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation Labor Heroes Celebration.
The award celebrates the spirit of Mother Jones, who rose to prominence in the late 1800s as a fearless union organizer of coal miners known for her inclusiveness and concern for people who didn’t have a voice on the job, such as child laborers.
Fuchs is a devoted advocate for Orange County employees and can often be found conducting work site safety evaluations at the numerous county worksites where CSEA members provide vital services. Congratulations on the well-deserved award!
