AUG 7: Western Mass. ‘Purple Picnic’ in Goshen

Join us for a day of fun and relaxation!

Local 509 members work hard each day serving Western Mass families — so it’s about time we have some fun together as a union family! Join us August 7 for a ‘purple picnic’ filled with good food, great conversation and beautiful surroundings at DAR State Forest in Goshen.

The ‘Purple Picnic’ is a totally free, family-friendly event. We’ll provide the food and cover parking costs (identify yourself as part of the SEIU509 group), but feel free to bring a cooler, a dish to pass, games, musical instruments or anything else to make the day great. There’s also a great beach, so bring your swimsuit!

We want to make sure to have enough food and drinks on hand, so be sure to click here to let us know you’re coming.
