Under sunny blue skies and puffy white clouds, SEIU 721 Inland Region members and their families celebrated the many contributions they and their co-workers have made in the desert, with a day of family fun, food and games at Victoria Park in Palm Springs on Saturday, Oct. 25.
Congressman Dr. Raul Ruiz stopped by to show his support for the workers and families gathered and vowed to continue to fight for those in Eastern Riverside county.
You are the backbone of the middle-class!– Congress member Dr. Raul Ruiz, D-36
SEIU 721 members from all over the desert attended, among them workers from City of Palm Springs, Riverside County, the City of Indio and several from the cities of Hemet and Riverside.
This was a great event. It has been many years since we’ve held an event for members in the desert and I hope we can do it again next year.– Bill Notte, SEIU 721 City of Palm Springs Chapter President and Executive Board member
