This Wednesday, the New England Regional Council of Carpenters will have its first ever Carpenters Appreciation Night as a wrap-up for the first cycle of the Union Participation Program. All members who took part in UPP events will be entered into drawings for great prizes, including $5,000 cruise vouchers, big screen TVs, iPads, Sonos speakers, Kindles and surround sound speaker sets.
The event will take place at the Carpenters Center in Dorchester and streamed live at www.nercc.org/upp. In addition to the event at the Carpenters Center, members will be getting together at 15 locations throughout New England for social events to watch the drawings. These events will be a great opportunity for members to re-connect with their Brothers and Sisters from their local and their area. There will also be drawings for additional door prizes at the viewing events.
Most events are serving dinner or light refreshments and doors will open at 4:30 pm with the live broadcast beginning at 5:30 pm, but please confirm. Members are encouraged to arrive early at locations where parking may be a concern.
