Let's Memorialize Dale together

Message from Business Manager Leo Yanez
Brothers and Sisters, below is a communication put out by the company of a Memorial Service for our brother Dale Crout. Many members from the Elmira Division will be participating. If you can manage, we invite the entire Local 83 family to attend the event. If work prevents you from attending, please take a moment along with your co-workers to say a prayer for Dale and his family.
Dear fellow Iberdrola USA employee,
On November 15th we will mark one year since the tragic death of our colleague, Dale Crout. While in a helicopter conducting a routine inspection of NYSEG transmission lines, Dale was killed when the aircraft went down; the pilot was also killed.
Dale was a Line Mechanic in the Elmira Division and had 11 years of service with NYSEG. He continues to be greatly missed by his co-workers, friends and family.
You are invited.  A special memorial tribute to Dale has been coordinated by the employees of the Elmira Division. The tribute will take place at the Elmira Service Center lawn on November 15, 2013 at 12:30 p.m., followed by refreshments in the Auditorium at 1 p.m. On behalf of the company and the employees of the Elmira Division, we would greatly appreciate your participation. During the event, we welcome Dale's colleagues to share any special remembrance they may have of him. 
Kind regards,
Sheri Lamoureux
