"From the first phone call to the after-celebration follow-up, their professionalism and attention to details were very clear. I strongly recommend Union Histories to any local planning an anniversary celebration."

U.A. Plumbers & Fitters Local No. 60, New Orleans

The officers and members of Iron Workers Local 263 express their appreciation and gratitude for the work Union Histories and Union Events did to make our 100-Year Celebration a huge success. The History Book is nothing short of incredible. Over the years, I have seen several 100-year books, but they are no comparison to the one Union Histories produced for Local 263; the details and pictures were exceptional, without question. I also can't say enough about the job Union Events and event coordinator Robyn did to pull all the different aspects of our party together, from start to finish. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased with the work Union Histories provided -- we got exactly what was promised, something that is not always easy to produce in this day and time.

Ronnie Smitherman, Business Manager, Ironworkers Local 263

U.A. Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 60 gives its sincere appreciation to Union Histories and Union Events for making our 125th Anniversary Celebration a huge success! From the first phone call to the after-celebration follow-up, their professionalism and attention to details were very clear. The detail of the History Book was unbelievable, and because of it, we all now have a greater understanding of our forefathers and our place in the history of the City of New Orleans. The Anniversary Celebration was tremendous, and Robyn, the events manager, did an excellent job working with the event facility staff, the hotel management and the entertainment group. I strongly recommend Union Histories to any local planning an anniversary celebration.

Curtis Mezzic, Business Manager, UA Plumbers & Fitters Local 60

Union Histories and Union Events did an incredible job with our 100th Anniversary. The intricate details they found with their research were nothing short of fascinating -- there is no way we could facilitate so much research, nor published it into a book without their professional services. The publication of the History book resonated so well with our members and, more importantly, our retirees.  Robyn did an amazing job with the event, and her aggressive bargaining helped offset so many costs. She and her staff took care of so many details, from the most significant items all the way down to the napkin selection. Everything was spot on, on time and more than we expected.  I highly recommend Union Histories and Union Events to anyone hosting an event of this nature; it’s what made the difference for our great local.
