The Central New York chapter of CSEA set up a nice union get-together at the Syracuse Mets game for Saturday.
Yes, I passed the Civil Service Test and scored high enough on the list to secure my position at the library, part of the Onondaga County system. So I said yes for tickets that included spots at the tables and a nice buffet meal of hot dogs, burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, watermelon …
My dear wife Karen, daughter Elisabeth and fiance George Three much appreciated the whole setup, much different than our usual view from the stadium stands.
It was fun taking in the different perspectives … even though Jacksonville jumped off to a 5-run lead in the top of the first.
It was fun seeing the last leg for the mascot race unfold right in front of the table we chose.
On this day, the mascots beat the kids.
Eventually, we strayed out to the rest of the ballpark. And, we stayed for the fireworks. Check back on Tuesday and Wednesday for more photos.
