Members’ Day Lunch: Perogies and You
We’re gearing up to host our annual Members’ Day Lunch celebration and that’s an exciting prospect!
We want to celebrate International Worker’s Day (i.e. May Day) by acknowledging the strength and value of our membership. Hence, the hot meal and the lunch hour of mingling, prize giveaways, handing out of long-service awards, and speeches. And, because the city and its union’s are also in the mood to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike, our lunches will feature a strike-related trivia quiz. Basically, in preparation, brush up on your strike knowledge and bring your appetites. Especially knowing that this year it’ll be a Ukrainian buffet on menu – perogies, stuffed cabbage rolls, kolbasa sausage, and garlic bread.
Join us on either May 1st (UM Fort Garry), May 7th (UWinnipeg), or May 14th (UM Bannatyne), by choosing to attend the 12:00 noon or 1:00 pm sitting at your campus.
Pre-registration is absolutely required to attend. So, take a minute to fill out and submit the registration form online, to let us know when and where you will be eating. Or, complete the fillable PDF form and submit it to the AESES office via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (204-949-5215) or interdepartmental mail. The deadline to register is April 20, 2019.
- As a reminder, union events are reserved for signed AESES members. If you aren’t yet signed, but would still like to participate, please fill out a membership application form here, before submitting it to our office alongside your lunch registration form.
- As a way of giving back to our larger community, we will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items and monetary funds at each of the lunches, to be passed along to campus food banks. Donors will be entered in a draw to win prizes and gift baskets. That’s an incentive. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
- Also, if you would like to volunteer an hour of your time at the lunches, by assisting with the registration process, food service, or clean-up, please let the AESES Office know of your availability (204-949-5200 or email@example.com). We greatly appreciate the help of each volunteer who helps make these lunches a success.
