Message from the President


Brothers and Sisters,


In light of a recent event of severe consequence, several millwright brothers got together and started a Relief Fund to help Brothers and Sisters in need. The fund has helped a brother with 5 children who was about to lose his house, his car was broke down and he could not travel to get to work.  The Fund gave him $1500.00 to get back on track.

We would like to hear from anyone who knows of a Brother or Sister within our organization that may be in similar dire straits.  Have them give myself or Matt Cannon a call and we will endeavor to render assistance.

The Secretary-Treasurer of this Fund is Pastor Paul Rice - who is also a Brother Millwright.  We set the fund up thru his nonprofit church.  The fund is also watched over by a committee who reviews each case and recommends the action to be taken.  The Committee includes Brothers Matt Cannon as Chairman, Ernie Stille, Jim Indergard and myself.  Matt Cannon’s phone number is 360-431-4972 and mine is 541-990-9400. Again please let us know if we can help.

If you would like to help out a brother or sister in need, we can use any contribution you could make.  Donation can be sent to account number #954428-27 at P.O. Box 481, Rainier, OR 97048.

Thank you all for your support in this effort to prove Brotherhood still lives in our Union.  Gods Peace upon you and God Bless us all.

                                                                                                  You’re Local #96 President,

                                                                                                 Kenton E. Yoder II (CHIEF)
