Navistar Picnic Planned

Some former Chatham Navistar workers are hosting a picnic for past employees and their families.

Co-organizer Gary Pryor sees the first annual event as a way to get some closure and have a good time. “It was an idea (that came to me) watching the plant being dismantled and driving past it on a continuous basis and running into various employees shopping in the area along with gasing up and all, you run into various employees,” says Pryor. “You know they’re very distraught as to what’s going on, what’s been transpiring.”

The event will be held at St. Phillips Hall in Grande Pointe on September 13. Pryor is asking anyone who will attend to RSVP by August 29.

Anyone looking to RSVP, sponsor the event, or make a donation should contact Gary Pryor at 519-354-2834, Cye Addley at 519-354-0413, or Bill Willder at 519-352-2557.
