Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking a moment to read this book, “AFSCME In Our Communities.” This book highlights just some of the many ways that AFSCME members are involved in their communities outside of work.

You probably know AFSCME members in your community. Our membership includes countless volunteer firefighters, Girl Scout leaders, Boy Scout/Cub Scout leaders, coaches, food drive volunteers, PTA volunteers, school board members, city council members, volunteers at your church or place of worship, and many other types of volunteers and community leaders.

AFSCME members are integral parts of our Iowa communities. At work, they help make our communities run by providing needed public services. Outside of work, they take the time to volunteer and further improve our communities.

Please enjoy, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 515-246-1517.

Sincerely,


Danny Homan, President
AFSCME Iowa Council 61

(Pictured Left to Right at ALS Walk: Morgan Williams (daughter of Jason), Local 212 Vice President Jason Williams, Local 212 President Chris De Harty, Local 212 Executive Board Member Wage Boogerd, and Local 212 Executive Board Member Ron Isaacson)

While the nationwide awareness of ALS has increased dramatically with the success of the Ice Bucket Challenge, members of AFSCME Local 212 were already well aware of the struggles of those fighting ALS. That’s because Jerry Barcus, a 26 year employee of the City of Sioux City and Local 212 member, has been battling ALS since 2012.

AFSCME Local 212 members had already worked together to build a ramp for Jerry at his home; however, they were still looking for a way they could do more to help fight ALS. With an ALS walk in Sioux City coming up, they decided to come together with management to raise money to fight ALS. AFSCME Local 212 President Chris De Harty and Parks Superintendent Kelly Bach pledged to do the walk twice if $500 could be raised. If $750 could be raised, Parks Superintendent Bach pledged to dye her hair purple for a future city council meeting. Dozens of AFSCME members donated to support the cause.

The walk was held on September 7th in Sioux City and the team consisting of AFSCME Local 212 and management raised $850 to support the fight against ALS! Jerry Barcus completed the ALS Walk in his wheelchair. In addition to Jerry, the following AFSCME Local 212 members and family participated in the walk: Chris De Harty, Jason Williams, Morgan Williams, Teresa Pynn Borchers, Wade Boogerd, Tricia McKean De Harty, and Ron Isaacson. Local 212 also helped provide fun activities for kids who attended the walk, including face painting and a bounce house.

In addition to the walk, several members also donated funds to help fight ALS through the ice bucket challenge.

Local 212 President Chris De Harty said “it was really exciting to see our local membership’s strong support for the fight against ALS. As public employees, we help improve our communities both on the job and outside of work. Our participation in the walk was a great way to show our solidarity with Brother Barcus.”

Jerry Barcus said “I’ve been a union member for decades. I’ve been glad to help my brothers and sisters when they needed help. And now my brothers and sisters have taken time to away from their families to help me and to help fight against ALS. It really shows how no AFSCME member is ever truly alone.”

In February, Jim Payton retired after many years as a proud AFSCME Local 2985 member and correctional officer at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Coralville. Jim helped keep us safe in more ways than one. Not only did he work for many years as a correctional officer – he’s also a veteran.

When Jim saw the poor condition of the seats in the Veterans Memorial Building’s auditorium in Cedar Rapids, he knew he had to find a way to pay tribute to our nation’s veterans by repairing the seats.

Jim worked with other veterans at the Iowa Veterans Welcome Center to get started on the painstaking process of restoring the seats. About half the seats have been repaired so far.

Jim’s work was recently featured in a Cedar Rapids Gazette story and video.

Take a moment to read a bit about the efforts of Jim and his fellow veterans. It will definitely make you feel proud.

NEWTON – On Wednesday, March 5th, AFSCME Local 0451 donated $2,500 towards a veteran’s monument that will be placed on the courthouse square in Newton. The monument will honor fallen veterans.

“It is important to honor our fallen veterans. This monument will help ensure that future generations of Jasper County residents never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country,” said AFSCME Local 0451 President Jerry Jones.

Included with this release is a photo of the check presentation for the donation. Included in the photo are AFSCME Local 0451 President Jerry Jones, Jasper County Treasurer Doug Bishop, AFSCME Local 0451 members, and members of the Veterans’ Committee of Jasper County.

Every Jasper County resident that was killed in action will be placed on the memorial at no charge. The project is being led by Jasper County Treasurer Doug Bishop. No public funds are being used for the project.

In Iowa, AFSCME Iowa Council 61 represents 40,000 public employees and private sector employees. AFSCME Local 0451 represents employees at the Newton Correctional Facility and at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville, which are part of the Iowa Department of Corrections.

CORALVILLE – Today AFSCME Local 2985 presented a $775 donation to the Iowa Veterans Welcome Center in Cedar Rapids in an event at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Coralville.

“We owe a debt of a gratitude to every veteran. We hope that our donation will help the Center further its cause of Veterans helping Veterans by providing ongoing outreach, activity services, and supplying resource information as veterans continue to adjust to civilian life,” said AFSCME Local 2985 President Marty Hathaway.

In photo from left to right (click "read more" below to visit a page with a larger photo): Jim Payton (AFSCME Local 2985 member and veteran), Chad Sauser (AFSCME Local 2985 member and veteran), Marty Hathaway (AFSCME Local 2985 President), Roger Wiest (Iowa Veterans Welcome Center President), and Jay Kaiser (Iowa Veterans Welcome Center Vice President).

AFSCME Local 2985’s memorial fund was started many years ago by the membership. When a family member of a member passes away, the local puts $25.00 dollars into the fund and at the end of the year the local looks for an organization to donate the money to in the names of the people that passed away that year so that their memory can live on.

In Iowa, AFSCME Iowa Council 61 represents 40,000 public employees and private sector employees. AFSCME Local 2985 represents employees at the Iowa Medical & Classification Center, which is part of the Iowa Department of Corrections.
