To date the New West and District Labour Council have been unable to field a full team for the 5th annual Hyack Homecoming Tug of War and are at risk of losing our trophy by default. We have held the trophy (and bragging rights) for 4 of the 5 years and would love to keep it for another year.

This event is to be held tomorrow night (Friday, September 13th) at the football field at New Westminster Secondary, 835 8th Street. It is expected to take less than 2 hours of your time and volunteers are asked to meet up at the field by 4:45 pm. Volunteers will receive a free ticket and program to the game.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Hermen Kailley at (778)991-2063 or

We will be participating in Labour Day celebrations again this year with the New Westminster & District Labour Council at Holland Park in Surrey on Labour Day, Monday, September 2nd. We will have a booth and be hosting a BBQ with hot dogs. Please come down and say hi!
