President’s Message

SEPTEMBER 2014
(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD ENTIRE SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER)

Well, it is hard to complain about this summer. I hope everyone is having a safe and happy one.

On August 1-3 we attended the National NYCPD 10-13 Convention at the Honors Haven Resort. A good time was had by all: good food, drinks, friends and many great stories. We fared pretty well in the scholarship and mega categories. Past President Tim Connolly’s granddaughter and member Chris Morley’s granddaughter each won a scholarship.

Medicare reimbursement checks for calendar year 2013 (for those of you and/or your spouses who have Medicare as their primary healthcare provider) were received in August. If you do not know what I am talking about, please stop by the board table at the September meeting.

Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for the year will remain the same as 2013. Eligible members receiving an annual pension of $18,000 or more will receive a maximum increase of $15.00 per month beginning with the September 30th pension check. One of the criteria to be eligible for COLA is that one must be at least 55 years of age and retired for at least 10 years. Other criteria exist for disability retirees, etc.

Although the summer is our off time, politically speaking – we spent one night at Sen. Klein’s office in the Bronx. I would like to personally thank the 9 members who showed up for telephone duty. We will try and visit both Assemblymen Kenneth Zebrowski and Senator Carlucci before the September meeting.

We cannot be a strong organization without your support and participation. Please promote us in your conversations and recruit new members whenever you can.
Next Meeting: Kearsing Edwards American Legion Post #1600, Pomona NY Thursday September 11, 2014 @ 7:30PM. – Guest Speaker is Susan Branam, Deputy Director, County of Rockland Veterans Administration.

Fraternally,

Lou Massaro
President


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