Business Manager Comments
You should be seeing a packet in the mail from our Health Insurance for open enrollment. Even if nothing has changed in your family, each member is required to fill out the paperwork and send back in to the administrators. This will prevent any lapse in coverage for your insurance.
With 2019 coming to an end we look back and realize what a crazy year it has been! I hope all members had a chance to spend time with their families during the Holidays and to recoup a little bit. 2020 looks to be promising with work coming up at Nutrien for their fall shutdown and continuing work at Van Wert Hospital and Honda Anna. I would like to wish a happy and prosperous New year for everyone!!
