We will truly miss these dear friends and extend our heartfelt condolences to their families.
The best way to make benevolent fund payments is to mail them to Eric Pederson at Fire St.20(A), 6601 Manchaca Rd., Austin, TX 78745. Make
the checks out to: Local 975 Benevolent Fund. Eric's phone number is (512)441-7335(Home) and (512)922-4332(Cell).
We have enclosed a copy of your invitation to the Austin Fire Museum
Grand Opening Celebration. This will be held April 23, 2005
from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. at Brush Square, the park behind Fire Station 1, at 401 E. 5th St. This is a very worthy cause which is preserving the history of our fire department. They also have a website at www.austinfiremuseum.org.
Also enclosed is your invitation to the 2005 Retirees' Party to be held Wednesday, May 11, 2005, at the Manchaca Fire Hall at 6:00 pm. We hope to see many of you there if possible!
We would also like to remind all of you about the retiree breakfast group
which meets every second Wednesday at about 8:00 am at the Owens Restaurant in the vicinity of IH-35 and Hwy 290 East. Please make this get together if you get a chance.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.
