Presidents Report

Hello to all.

I wish everyone a healthy and prosperous New Year. My wife and I were talking about the year 2000 the other day. The year all the computers were going to crash and the bad things we were supposed encounter. It is hard to believe that was 17 years ago. Glad we made it thru the year.

Last year just before Christmas, it was brought to our attention that the Firefighters 4 Kids program had some trouble with gifts for teens and very small children. So this year the Executive Board thought it would be a nice gesture if we got involved. It was brought to the floor that we donate $300.00 to help this worthy cause. The members present approved the motion. In addition we also collected another $200.00 at the November and December meeting for a total donation of $500.00 dollars. We have several 4 Unit members that are still working with the Firefighters 4 Kids. Thanks to them all and to 4 Unit for their support. I hope we will continue to support them in the future.

With this being the New Year you will notice many changes in our insurance. We attended the Pension Board meetings, but these changes were thought necessary to keep our insurance solvent for as long as possible. We were not pleased with the outcome.

Our Chaplin has ask for some help, as many of you know Larry Baker just sits around most of the time. He is looking for something to fill up his quiet time. If you know of any of our members who are in the hospital, or assisted living or a nursing home please let Larry or anyone on the Executive Board know. Our lines of communication have a major glitch. We lose track of people, we do not have contact information for family members. So we are counting on you to keep us informed. Many thanks to our Chaplin, he is very busy man and represents us all very well.

Our two IT staff, Al Allen and John Simkins have been working hard to keep the website up and running. Our website host has made many changes in the past few months. These changes have made it hard for us to make the necessary updates on our website. I know Al and John have spent a lot of time on the phone and the computer trying to get these issues corrected. Thanks to these two members that work so hard to help keep us informed.


Gary A. Church.

4 Unit President.
