From left, Central Region Veterans Committee members Paul Jones, Central Region 2nd Vice President Tim Backus, Rosemary Jones, committee Chair Lynn May and Dave Morgan, serving as an honor guard for the region’s observance of Workers Memorial Day, reflect in a moment of silence in honor of workers who lost their lives on the job, to COVID-19, and the September 11 attacks. The recent ceremony had been postponed from earlier this year, when the COVID-19 pandemic was at its height in New York. For the past 11 years, the region’s Safety and Health Committee has planted a tree in counties throughout the region as a living memorial to fallen workers. This year’s ceremony took place in Madison County. (Photo by Nicholas Newcomb)
