Driver Dean Vargo Makes Donation to MDA on Behalf of Local S-6

Driver Dean Vargo presented a check in the amount of $350 to Local S-6 last week. The donation is from a portion of the proceeds from his novel that he has generously donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association on behalf of the union. Dean and his son Anson co-authored the science fiction novel, "Galactic Passages: Planet 6333," which is available for purchase on Amazon. Dean's daughter Natalie also contributed to the book by providing the illustrations. Dean and his kids are currently working on a second follow-up novel, "Galactic Passages: Requisite Bandits" and should be available early next year.

Local S-6 Social Media

As discussed at the October union meeting, Local S-6 has established an enhanced online presence with the three main social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Instagram and Twitter are up and running smoothly; Facebook still has a few bugs to be ironed out, but is a functional page. It’s somewhat difficult to find, so please enter in the entire name when searching. I would encourage all current & retired members and family & friends to go to these sites and support our new endeavor. 

With that said, let me reiterate the following... these sites have been established to promote our union and the membership (current and retired) in a positive and proactive light. Be respectful, be kind. Arguing, negative sentiments and bullying will not be tolerated. Political commentary, unless explicitly approved by the executive board, will also not be tolerated. Additionally, please do not post anything regarding sensitive subject matter - for example, no emergency scene photos. All of the aforementioned posts will be taken down and responsible parties blocked indefinitely.

If (for whatever reason) you do not wish for your name and/or photo to be posted on the website or social media, please speak with an executive board member or the website/social media admin. Your request will be honored.

Now to the fun... PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE share your posts and photos regarding union activities, parties, camaraderie, training, etc. We’re an active, fun, vibrant group and we need more self-promotion... so have at it! God speed and have an amazing day! #iafflocals6
