Every year AFSCME Council 93 members help prepare their communities for the holiday season. Starting in early October and right on through to New Year's Day AFSCME members are setting up generators, stringing lights, decorating, putting up trees, directing traffic and crowds, and working to make the holidays festive. Their hard work helps make the holiday season a happy and joyous time.

This year when you are admiring the holiday displays take a moment to remember the AFSCME Council 93 men and women who helped make that happen.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
