BLET Division 266 hosts Marty Kinder Benefit

CLEVELAND, January 15 — The members of BLET Division 266 (Savannah, Ill.) are hosting a benefit for Brother Marty Kinder who suffered a severe on-duty injury last month.

On December 10, 2012, while on duty as a conductor working for the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad (DM&E) in the Savannah Yard, Brother Kinder was involved in an incident resulting in the loss of his right arm. Brother Kinder, 43, first joined the Brotherhood on January 1, 2010. He and his wife have two children: a son in the eighth grade and a daughter in college at Northern Illinois University. BLET members on the DM&E property are represented by General Chairman Pete Semenek of the CP Rail/U.S. General Committee of Adjustment.

The benefit will help Brother Kinder and his family through this difficult time. It will be held at Flipper’s Island Bar (407 Pearl St., Sabula, IA 52070) from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 19. Events will include a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, dart tournament, private donations, other raffles, food and drinks. Anyone with questions should contact brother Emilio Villalobos, Secretary-Treasurer of Division 266: miov1027@gmail.com; or (563) 580-0034. There is also a Facebook page for the event.

Those who cannot attend but wish to make a donation should make checks payable to "Marty Kinder Benefit" and mail them to Brother Villalobos at: 104 California St., Savanna, IL 61074.
