Presidents Report
Greetings to everyone,
We had our May meeting at Station 67. With 117, 4 Unit members present and 5 guests. Thanks to the girls from CME for the cookies and gifts they brought to pass out to the members. We will be sponsoring a golf outing for CME Credit Union, a chance to win tickets will be held at the next monthly meeting at the Firefighters VFW. Date for the outing is September 15 2014. The proceeds from the outing help Local 67s Columbus Firefighters Foundation. We are also hosting a Golf outing for the Ohio Fallen Firefighter. The drawings for both outings will be held at the next monthly meeting. I would like to thank Jack Reall and the men from local 67 for all of the courtesy extended to our members. Thanks to Lt. Garey Borgan and the crew from Ladder 1, Paul Deskins, Mark Foster, Ray Wine, Brian Morsadt, Todd Carl. and Harlan Henderson for all of the kindness shown. The meal they prepared for us was great.
At our May meeting we also made nominations for the upcoming election. John Sherman who has served as trustee for many years of dedicated service to us, is asking to be replaced. Phil Christ has ask to be considered for the trustee position. We will vote on this at the June meeting. Next year we will have several other positions that will most likely be vacated. These members have worked many years and now would like a break. Brothers if we want this organization to continue we are going to have some of you that have been on the sidelines to suit up and get in the game. I have been looking for a secretary for a year now, I thought we had one but things did not work out. Many of those that have come before us have left us a great benefit, but this benefit takes people to make it flourish. Please take the next few months and consider stepping up and helping out. Some of these positions would need you to learn the job before taking it on. I want to thank Bob Elfilne and Bill Balthaser for stepping up to fill some vacant positions. Bob has taken over as Chairman of the Banquet. Bill has done just about anything I have ask of him. Butch Blackburn has also asked to be replaced, we are sure going to miss his presence in the kitchen. Tom Troup has agreed step in and provide our lunches. Thanks to the members who have stepped up to help this organization continue to grow.
Work continues on the rosters and we are hoping to have them finished by the middle of August. Dr. Hassel will attend the June meeting to discuss health problems and answer any questions our members may have. He is not here to answer questions concerning insurance problems, so please refrain from asking.
Gary Church.
4 Unit President.
