Greenfield Village event sold out at BLET 150th

CLEVELAND, April 18 ó Members and guests who have not yet registered for the BLETís 150th anniversary celebration in Detroit are advised that the May 7 trip to the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village is now sold out.

The trip will include a tour of the museum, cocktail hour, dinner, and a train ride. Greenfield Villageís "Railroad Junction" area features an operating steam powered locomotive and the Detroit, Toledo & Milwaukee roundhouse, which was moved to Greenfield Village from Marshall, Mich., approximately 10 years ago. It is the only working late 19th-centry roundhouse in the Midwest.

Late registrations for the Greenfield Village trip will be placed on a waiting list in the order that they are received, in the event of cancellations. If space does not become available, then those on the waiting list will be given a full refund.

On May 8, 1863, American labor history was made in Detroit with the founding of the Brotherhood of the Footboard. The Organizationís name was changed one year later to Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, and then to Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen in 2004. From May 6-9, 2013, the BLET ó the oldest labor union in North America ó is returning to Detroit to celebrate its 150th anniversary.
