Hartford Yard Goats "Organized Labor Night"

Date: 
Sat, 09/04/2021 - 4:30pm - 9:00pm
Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions are invited to join the Hartford Yard Goats for their annual appreciation of all those represented by our country's unions. The team holds the celebration to honor the history and contributions working people have made and to support the efforts of the Connecticut AFL-CIO's community service agency. Members are encouraged to wear their local union and/or AFT Connecticut gear to the game.
 
The game, which features the Yard Goats playing the Reading Fightin' Phils, begins at 6:05pm. Agenda also includes a pre-game presentation recognizing the John J. Driscoll United Labor Agency (ULA)'s "Helmets to Hardhats" apprenticeships, an on-field ceremony honoring organized labor and a post-game fireworks show.

  • non-perishable food; 
  • toilet paper;
  • napkins;
  • facial tissue;
  • paper towels;
