President’s Message – May 2024


Happy Mother’s Day to all our members and to their mothers, and prayers for those who have passed.

Condolences to the family and friends of the late Reverend Michael Keane, who was the Hudson Valley 1013’s Chaplain. We thank him for his dedicated service to our organization.

Thank you to those members who attended the Albany rally to support the Health Benefits Protection Bill sponsored by Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski (A07866) and Senator Pete Harckham (S8388). Please call your representatives and ask them to pass this very important legislation.

Our next meeting will be help on Thursday May 23rd at 7:00pm at the American Legion Post 1122 located at 840 McLean Avenue Yonkers, New York 10704. There will be a carpool leaving at 5:30pm from the lot between Mavis Tire and Aldi Supermarket on route 59 in Nanuet.

June’s meeting, which is also our last meeting before the summer break, will be our “not to be missed” annual BBQ. It will be held on Thursday June 13th from 5:00pm-9:00pm at the Haverstraw Elks located at 877 Elks Drive, Haverstraw, NY 10927. There will be Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Sausage and Peppers, Chicken, Pasta, Salads, and Beer and Wine included. You are invited to bring a significant other as well. We ask everyone to send a check in the amount of $30 for each person attending. This check allows us to get a more accurate count of who will be attending and will be returned to you when you arrive. We will also be calling our bi-annual raffle as well. Please mail all checks and raffles in by June 4th, to Hudson Valley 10-13 PO Box 1013 Pearl River, New York 10965. Hope to see you all there.

Hudson Valley 10-13 member Ronny Diz is running for County Legislature, District 2, please consider supporting him.

Let us remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice as we celebrate Memorial Day.
