On behalf of the members of the Hudson Valley 10-13 Organization we wish to extend to all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. God Bless our Armed Forces, Veterans and all Law Enforcement Officers throughout this nation.
On December 7, 2016, this nation will honor the memory of those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor. President Franklin D. Roosevelt said “a day which will live in infamy” for all time.
This is the last newsletter until March 2017.
I would like to extend the warmest wishes to you and your families in this 2016 Holiday Season. The presidential election is now over. We are still a nation with tremendous opportunity, although uncer- tainty prevails. In the 21st century, we have witnessed a multitude of controversial issues. For some of us born in 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, the world as we once knew it, now seems of foreign origin.
As the world continues to change and the United States of America remains a melting pot, respect for all is the key. In the realm of respect, I hold America high on a pedestal, always honoring what I grew up to know America to be.
Growing and learning is a part of life. Acknowledging and maintain- ing the Christmas Holiday Season is what I have have practiced my whole life and where my heart will always be. During the holiday season, practicing kindness, understanding, humbleness and good will toward men are the true meaning of Christmas.
When one has peace and love in their intentions, whether you say Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday’s, it’s the sincerity that counts. The overriding fact that is always true, is that Christ is the reason for the season. In closing, I wish you joy throughout the Holiday Season. Have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a blessed New Year, from my family to yours.
God Bless America and keep America strong.
Bart Foley, President
