President’s Message – December, 2023

Hello, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Thank you to Westchester Trustee Bob Lebzelter for the great job of putting together November’s meeting in Yonkers.

Our Christmas and Holiday Celebration, the last meeting of the year, will be at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 21st at the K & E American Legion Post 1600, 20 Station Road Pomona, NY 10970. December’s Bi-annual 50/50 will be drawn. This meeting is also attended by our Snowbirds home for the Holidays. 2024 Courtesy cards should be available also. Hope to see you all there.

The amendments to our Constitution and Bi-Laws will be voted upon at December’s meeting. These changes have been read at two consecutive meetings and have been published in two consecutive newsletters. Thank you to committee members Mark V Murphy, Chip Hayes, and John Briganti for your efforts.

Our March 2024 meeting will be in Pomona, April’s meeting will be in Yonkers, Westchester County (tba), and May’s meeting will be in Monroe, Orange County (tba). In June we will be having our meeting/picnic, details to follow.

Please remember to pay your 2024 dues early. Thank you to Members and Life Members who continue to generously donate to our organization.

On behalf of Hudson Valley 1013 I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, and Peaceful New Year.
