P-4 Summer Picnic


Dear P4 Members and Guests,

I hope you and your family are doing well. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our annual P4 Summer Picnic.  As you may know, one of the great benefits we have bargained for in our P4 contract is a paid, half-day off to attend a Union approved summer picnic. With everything going on in the world with COVID-19, however, our Social Activities Committee and I have decided to do things a little different this year.

For over 20 years, it has been our tradition to hold our annual summer picnic at the Farmington Club.  Phase 3 of Connecticut’s Reopen Plan is anticipated to begin in mid-July and may allow outdoor gatherings of 250 people.  Just because we can have a large gathering, does not mean we should. We at P4 and CSEA want to remain advocates for the safety of our members and all state employees.  In order for all our members to keep safe, we cannot recommend holding our traditional picnic get together in Farmington.

With that being said, the Social Activities Committee and I would like to invite you to the first ever “CSEA P-4 Council Virtual 2020 Summer Picnic” on Friday, July 17th.  We will have an open virtual meeting on Zoom for all picnic guests from 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Check in from your computer or phone and join us from your own backyard (or wherever you choose) for fun, prizes and entertainment.

Tickets are available at https://www.gofundme.com/f/p4picnic2020.  The council is charging $5 per ticket to attend, which will all be donated to our own McCusker Scholarship Fund or other charity.  The P4 Council will pick up the tab for any costs involved with the picnic and festivities.  Please be sure to use your home email address as it will be used to send you your ticket and Zoom invite.  Rockin’ Ron Sedaille of FunTowerRadio.com has graciously volunteered to DJ our picnic.

Feel free to send us pictures and captions of your celebration to post of our P4 Facebook Page.  You can email pictures toTWoodwardPE@yahoo.com, or text them to me at 203-675-3428.  If you’re not currently subscribed, our P4 Facebook Group is CSEA / SEIU Local 2001 P-4 Council.
