Come celebrate UMG’s 80th birthday June 1

Yes, the United Media Guild is 80 years old. The local, formerly known as the St. Louis Newspaper Guild, has quite a history in these parts.

And we will celebrate this history with a party Sunday, June 1, from noon to 6 p.m. at Creve Coeur Park. This event will be at Corporate Site #2, Branwood Shelter, 13236 Streetcar Dr., Maryland Heights, Mo, 63043.

It is open to UMG members, alumni and retirees. Family members are welcome too.

We will provide meats, sides, lemonade and water. Folks can bring their own alcoholic beverages, but those drinks must remain in the shelter area.

It is very, VERY important to RSVP by May 19 by calling the UMG office at 314-241-7046 or by e-mailing Business Representative Mary Casey at

Let us know if you can make it. We want to make certain we order enough food.
