Local 429’s Christmas Dinner is a Great Success!

More than 140 members and their families had a great time at Local 429’s Christmas Dinner recently!

One of the highlights of the evening’s festivities was naming the Apprentice of the Year. Ana Laura Castaneda, who is employed by Freeman Fabrication, won the Clark McDonald Apprentice of the Year Award. This honor is named after the late Clark McDonald, a former member and business agent.

Ana Laura was presented the award by fellow members Council Rep Marco Vargas (right) and Will McFarlin (left) an instructor at the North Texas Training School. Also attending to offer their congratulations to Ana Laura were Mrs. C. McDonald (Clark’s widow) and their daughter, the honorable Judge Melody McDonald Wilkerson.

The evening also included the giveaway of many door prizes, ranging from baskets, cafe cups, and plants, to hats, t-shirts and Home Depot gift cards.

The staff and officers of Local 429 thanks the members and their families for making the December Union meeting a great event!
