Iron Workers Local 29, their Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee, and the Pacific NW Ironworkers Federal Credit Union held their 34th annual Breakfast with Santa party Dec. 7 at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas.
Initially hosted during the difficult economic times of 1985, the special event was created to help make the holiday season a little brighter for ironworkers’ families. Since that first year it has become a very popular and eagerly awaited holiday event. About 400 Iron Worker family members and more than 190 children and grandchildren enjoyed a holiday breakfast, followed by a visit from Santa Claus. Kids 10 and under each received a wrapped present.
