Chartered on January 6, 1893, I.B.E.W. Local No. 7 of Springfield, Massachusetts, commemorated its 125th Anniversary with a Festival and Clambake — the local has held an annual clambake since 1926 — on September 8, 2018, at the Ludlow Fish and Game Club in Ludlow, Massachusetts.
For the local’s special anniversary, Union Histories produced a fully researched, full-color, 125-year keepsake History Book of Local 7’s amazing story (did you know, for instance, that Local 7 installed the world’s first continuous fluorescent lighting system in the Springfield Armory during World War II?), and Union Histories also produced special signage and a video slideshow for the celebration festivities … all at NO COST to Local 7!
