Thanks for coming to our “Re-build the Post Fund Raiser.” I especially want to thank the Hoboken Elks Lodge No. 74 for hosting our fundraiser. And for their generous donation of $5,000 toward our rebuilding fund. Exalted Ruler Tom Foley, PER Jason Mauer, and Edward Madigan have to be singled out as the leaders from the Elks wholed their team. Needless to say, I want to thank all those in attendance, especially my brother veterans and the Adopt A Hoboken Soldier group led by Joann Peluso.
Additional donations are always welcomed and can be sent to: American Legion Post 107, 308 Second St. Hoboken, NJ 07030.
And as the song goes: “There’s no place like home for the holidays”… Let us remember all those men and women wearing the uniforms of not only the United States but those too wearing the uniforms of our police officers, our firefighters, our EMTs who will not be home for the holidays.
And in closing, as my good friend Tom Kennedy would say, “God Bless Our Troops, God Bless America and God Bless Hoboken!”
