Tuskegee Airmen Depot Family Fun Day

TWU families from the Tuskeegee Airmen Depot turned out for their fourth annual Family Day at 99th Street and Lexington Avenue. There were two beautifully restored vintage transit buses and a bouncy castle for the kids, and plenty of great food for everyone. TWU Local 100 Recording Secretary LaTonya Crisp-Sauray spent the day with our families, along with MaBSTOA Division Chair Richie Davis, who was given an award along with Depot Chair Dwayne Ruffin by City Councilman Ben Kallos. Also on hand to congratulate our two officers was City Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito, who represents the adjacent district. A big crowd pleaser was dunk-the-chair, during which children of our members took shots and throwing a baseball into a red switch that triggered the chair above a water-filled tank. Ruffin was doused a dozen times! Enjoy the pix.
