Happy Holidays!

CLEVELAND, December 23 -- As we enter the Holiday Season, I want to extend to all BLET members and their families my sincere best wishes for a Happy Holiday season and a prosperous, safe and happy New Year.

The December 1958 issue of the Locomotive Engineers Journal contains a holiday greeting from Grand Chief Engineer Guy L. Brown and the Brotherhood’s "Grand Officers," the equivalent of today’s Advisory Board. I would like to share a part of it with you, as sometimes the simplest greetings are the best:

"One of the wonders of Christmas is that all the trappings and tinsel, the written and spoken greetings, the music sung and played, are time-honored, well-worn and traditional, yet also always bright, fresh and new. Young and old delight in the customs, which generation after generation has delighted in. We cannot say anything new and would not if we could. The old greetings and prayers are the best -- Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men."

Wishing you a Happy Holiday season and fraternally,

Dennis R. Pierce
BLET National President
