I hope as we are reading this message that signs of Spring are in the
air and that this terrible winter is almost behind us. I or one know, it
really altered my way of doing things.
I must apologize for the way last months FEMA presentation turned
out. It seems they left us with more questions than answers. Despite our
coordinated efforts with them, things did not go as planned. We are
reaching out to other agencies and organizations to see if we can get an
accurate assessment of the flood zone changes and how it impacts our
property insurance requirements. If need be we will reschedule this for an
upcoming meeting. For any immediate concerns, I suggest you call our
local elected official's office with your questions.
At the February meeting, Lt. Vito Ardito of the 63rd Precinct was on
hand to discuss the recent criminal activity at the Kings Plaza Mall. We
are in ongoing discussions with the police and mall management to determine
what could be done to make us feel safe when we shop at the mall. We
expect to have a representative from the mall management staff on hand
at this months meeting.
March is nominating committee time, which means we will start preparing the
new slate of Officers and Directors to present to you at the April
membership meeting. If you feel you have something to offer and some
free time to volunteer, you must contact us by March 25th. We
require you to submit a resume or bio/profile of yourself. You can
call the hotline with any questions you have. You may forward
your resume to our PO Box, see a board member at this month’s
meeting, or email it to us. Remember the above deadline, since no
nominations will be accepted from the floor for new directors at the April
general membership meeting.
I can see by the fine response, that most of you received your membership
renewal kits. I'd like to thank all of you for your renewal, with a special
thanks to those who sent an additional donation. Besides having good
people, $$$$ is the foundation of any organization. If you lost or cannot
find your renewal kit, please use the renewal stub in the newsletter.
As mentioned last month, the advertising section of the newsletter is being
updated, so, now is the time to get your Ad into our widely circulated
publication. Please leave a message on the hot line.
Just an early alert, due to the Passover holiday, the April membership meeting will be on April 22nd, which is the 4thTuesday.
Please plan on attending this months meeting on Tuesday, March 18th, where
you will be able to ask questions, voice your concerns and enjoy the
O'Malley Irish Dancers.
Hope you all have a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day.
