What's New at IBT 776
On Saturday December 8, 2019 the Union Hall became Santa’s Christmas Land as Local 776 held its Christmas Party for members and retirees children and grandchildren. After a stop at Santa’s workshop for a gift next up was a visit with the Big Man himself! Followed by food, drinks, assorted sweet treats and a trip to the face painter!
Again this year the Smiley household was turned into a cookie factory as Local 776 Trustee Rob Smiley and his wife Janet baked approximately 2000 cookies for the event!
Taking a break from his kitchen duties President Ed Thompson was delighted at the crowd that filed the Hall. “Events like this help to provide quality time for our members and their families. With hurried work schedules, school schedules, and daily life activities time for gathering like this is important. As our name implies: the Brotherhood of Teamsters. I would like to thank the Officers, Agents, and Staff for all the time and effort put forth to insure the party was a success!”
The Union Hall was packed as family and friends got together to celebrate Christmas!
Santa and Mrs. Claus were kept busy with a steady stream of kids!
The face painters stayed busy all day!

On December 1, 2018 Local 776 sponsored a Christmas for Kids party for children in York County’s WIC (women, infants, and children) program. This annual event is a community services project the Local undertakes in the York area. Each child received a gift and a chance to meet with Santa, along with a bag of treats to take home. After meeting with Santa there were snacks and refreshments available for the kids and their families. Party committee chairman Rob Smiley, a Local 776 Trustee, and 776 TITAN operator Mandy Day worked together through the year to make sure that over 100 children from some of the areas most needy families had a brighter Christmas. This year members of the Teamster Horsemen Chapter 53W played an active role in making sure the party was a success.
Local 776 President Ed Thompson commented, “Helping these kids have a brighter holiday is one way we give back to the community where our members live and work. I would like to thank the members of the committee and the Teamster Horsemen who put a lot of time and effort into making this event happen. I would also like to thank Bimbo Bakery (Stroehmann/ Maier’s), Canteen Foods Corp., and Navistar for their participation this year in helping these kids have brighter holiday.”

This past Labor Day weekend Local 776 has several “guests” in the area. Several Teamster Horsemen from various Local Unions were spending the holiday in the area seeing the sites by motorcycle. Local 776 hosted a cookout at the York Union Hall for the riders before they left on a bike ride to Gettysburg. Horsemen from various chapters, including chapter 53 and chapter 46 joined with Local 776 members from chapter 53W for the cookout and the ride.
