I hope that everyone had nice and meaningful high holidays. This is always a busy time of year, between the holidays and the various September details. With September now behind us, October is an important month for us.
Our annual Lou Weiser Memorial Service and Scholarship Breakfast will be at the end of this month on October 28th, 0815 hours at Temple Emanu-El. This is one of our most important events, remembering the Department’s most recent line of duty deaths, its 09/11 deaths, and Shomrim line of duty deaths over the years.
While not specifically a Shomrim event, there is a thirty year memorial this month on October 19th for Brother Joe Galapo, killed in the line of duty on August 16, 1988. The memorial will be at East Midwood Jewish Center at 1100 hours.
Finally, I’d like to take the opportunity to remind everyone of our tzedakah drive to raise money and donate a medicycle to Magen David Adom, Israel’s national paramedic service. These medicycles often provide essential first response medical care when ambulances cannot access the location as easily. Please consider making a donation today. Click here for more info.
In the meantime, everyone stay safe, and I hope to see you soon at the membership meeting or an event.
