The NEPA Labor Day committee is planning to raise money for the Keystone Wounded Warriors on Sept. 2 at Kirby Park with a home-run hitting contest at 8:30 a.m. and a festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The area’s coal-mining heritage and the ILGWU will be honored. Many of the area’s coal miners were veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II and many lost their lives in coal mining disasters. Mothers and grandmothers worked in sweatshops in the garment industry to also provide for their families. Veterans and active service men and women will be on duty to share stories and speak on the needs for our veterans. Committee members, from left, first row: Wayne Namey, UFCW; Jan Lohman, CWA; and Patty Krushnowski, IBEW1944. Second row: Joe Padavan, USWU; Alex Passera, ILGWU; Mike Kwashnik, IBEW 163; Mark Davis, representative for Senator Yudichak.
