Property Insurance Voted On

Property Insurance discussed and voted On!

Property insurance options were slim, as insurance companies are steering away from "club" type policies.  Taconic Mountains Insurance (TMI) was able to find an underwriter who would insure our Post.

We had nine members, at the special meeting, on the 19th and discussed our options along with what funds the Post would use to pay for the insuance.  A motion was made to accept the insurance package TMI offered and PASSED with 100% for and zero against.

The plan is to have the paperwork transferring the property from the Town of Berlin to Post 937 ready by our next Post meeting on 02 August @ 7PM.  Post Commander, Chris Lecce, plans to sign the transfer paperwork at this meeting, thus officially accepting the property.  The insurance policy will be signed immediately following the acceptance of the property.

2017 4th of July Parade

Once again, Post 937, lead another great 4th of July parade with a four member color guard consisting of Chris Lecce, Chris Von Shilgen, Stanton Goodermote, and Wally O'Neil while other Post 937 members and veterans enjoyed a ride on the Veteran's Float.

It was good to see some members of the community rise and stand at attention, as the colors passed by; something that all Americans should do whenever our Nation's flag passes, in a precession.

Thank you to Laura Saunders (Taconic Mountains Insurance Co.) for organizing the Veteran's Float and to Burkick Excavating, in Petersburgh, for supplying the trailer and pulling the float.  It's involvment like this from our communities that makes all the difference to our veterans. We look forward to having this float or something like it, in next years Memorial Day parade.
