We are approaching 65 years of E & A. In that time this organization has seen fit to sponsor many athletic teams, has given scholarships since 1958 to members' family members, and has maintained a place for IBEW members to meet almost continuously since 1948.
The first building E & A owned was the building at 622 Hague. That building served us well until its sudden demise in 1992. With dedication and lots of volunteer time from Dan Greising, Dan Muccio, Mike Semborski and Don Sinna we now have the building we are now in.
The purpose of E & A, Inc. is the same now as it was in 1948. We, on the board believe this, and this building is what we have to show for it.
This is your building. Be proud of it and the craft that we all belong to.
The general membership hall is available for rental to any member of E & A. If you are interested in renting the hall for a wedding, party, etc. please call E & A.
