If you have a loved one, who is a member of Local 21 who has recently passed. Please let us know if you would like us to help with casket watch. This is something we typically do as an Honor Guard to show our continued commitment for our fallen brother/sister. As an Honor Guard, we typically only travel in the Twin Cities Metro area and perform our watch during the wake. We have at times done different events and outside the Metro for the retirees but each event has different needs. Please call or email to find out what we can do for you. Remember, the earlier we can be notified, the greater chance of securing more Honor Guard for your family member. You can fill out the box to the right of this page, or call me at 651-785-3740, ask for Ben.
