President’s Message


I would like to thank Vice President Bart Foley for the wonderful 911 memorial service he presided over at the opening of the September meeting. It was the first time I remember doing a ceremony and I think the participation was great.

We must never forget that this was not the first time terrorists struck. On October 20, 1981 two terrorist groups The Weather Underground and The Black Panthers joined forces to rob a Brinks armored truck in Nanuet NY. Peter Paige a Brinks guard was killed at the scene along with police officers Sgt. Edward and PO Waverly Brown who were gunned down in Nyack. Two of the terrorists Bill Ayres, co-founder of the Weather Underground and Van Jones a Black Panther are now advising the President of the US.

A memorial service will be conducted on Monday October 20, 2014 @ 4PM, NE Corner of Route 59 & Mountainview Avenue, Nyack NY. We usually have a great turnout for this ceremony.

Recently we have made some visits to our local politicians. November 4 is Election Day, please vote for a change. Two candidates we are supporting are Chris Day, son of HV member Ed Day; he is running for US Congress against Nita Loewy, and HV member Montgomery Delaney, running for NYS Supreme Court Judgeship 9th Judicial District, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester Counties.

See you at October 9, meeting. Please send in your dues for 2015.

*MEMBER UPDATE: Bill Hatch is recovering at home. We wish a him a speedy recovery.
