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.

FLAG MYTH

 * * FLAG MYTH * *

There has been a change to the Flag Code that no longer requires the flag to be properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.


There has been NO CHANGE to Flag Code section 6(a), which states: “It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flag staffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.”  https://www.legion.org/flag/flagmyths

Banner Orders

TRIBUTE BANNERS ARE GOING UP!

Tribute Banners are now being mounted in town on streets along the parade route.

There is NO deadline to order banners.

This is a year round program.  Banners will be mounted, as they come in.  If you desire to have you banner(s) up before Memorial Day, time is running out.  It takes approximately two weeks to receive a banner once it is ordered.

Pick up a banner brochure in Stewarts, Post Office, library, Hewitt's, Old Corner Store or go to your town's troopbanner page and print out application. Bring photo, application and payment to Berlin Town Office or the newly opened "Indoor Tag Sale" (old corner store) on Wed., Fri. & Sat. 10am-5pm, at 74 S. Main St. in Berlin.
