  Until we get back to the Jamaica Armory we have to hold meetings at various restaurants. This poses problems in securing a single location on the dates we want. That was a problem this year, so the EC moved from Saturday to Wednesdays for general meetings. We recognize this is a problem for working members and wish we could stay with non work days.

On the 17th of October each year we are hosted by Squad 18 FDNY at their house on West 10th street. Starting at 8:30 through to the Memorial Ceremony on 23d Street at noon. The service honors the memory of the whole squad that perished in the tragic Drug Store Fire. The Squad was led by Lt. Joe Priore brother of our former officer Vinny Priore, who authored “Happy New Year Yankee Bastards” based on his experience's in the battle of the bulge in WW II. Attendees are family members, descendants, fellow firemen of the Squad.
