Sean Andrews (E-54), John Mayberger (E-268) and Mike Zaczyk (E-250) share the spotlight at the March Meeting. Sean, our new Manhattan Boro Delegate, John the new Queens Boro Delegate and Mike "Z" from Brooklyn look forward to volunteering their time to help the Steuben's with the new challenges facing our organization in the year to come.  Joe Canosa from the Bronx and John Sarnes, Staten Island although not at the meeting, are also eager to help and look forward to a banner year in the FDNY Steuben Association. We welcome them all to the fold.

MARCH MEETING MINUTES:

We had a nice turn out at the March Meeting with 3 of the new Steuben Association Boro Delegates present. Mike "Z"-the Brooklyn Boro Delegate, John Mayberger-the Queensboro Delegate and Sean Andrews-the Manhattan Boro Delegate, were cordially greeted by President John Louthan. He thanked them for stepping up. They all enjoyed themselves and plan to attend many more. Joe Canosa-the Bronx Boro Delegate  and John Sarnes-the SI Delegate were unable to come but vowed they would be there in April...The Auto-Dues Program continues to flourish. Many existing members are choosing it to pay their dues and many new members are using it to join our organization, hence our membership numbers are beginning to grow.. Speaking of new members we welcome Robyn Summerlin of E-313 into the fold, she joined via Auto-Dues and looks forward to her first meeting, welcome Robyn!

 THE FDNY STEUBEN ASSOCIATION PROMOTES GOOD WILL AND GERMAN HERITAGE THROUGH ITS' MEMBERSHIP AND BELIEVES IN THE VALIDITY OF THE MERIT SYSTEM. ALL MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO ATTEND THE MANY EVENTS WE HOST THROUGHOUT 

THE YEAR.

2019 EVENTS THAT YOU SHOULD ATTEND!

HERE IS OUR 2019 CALENDAR OF EVENTS:

Of course we will host our monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month; January to June, then September to December. All meetings are held at the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant 1132 Hempstead Tpke Franklin Square, NY 11010. This year we hope to have interesting guest speakers at each meeting. After the conclusion of business hot food will be served along with refreshing beverages.


Beginning in June of 2019 we will have our first event; The Annual Steuben Family Picnic. We welcome any suggestions for the venue to be located, as of now we are researching places to have it.  Two years ago we had it at Oyster Bay Park but it was lightly attended. We need new guys to get involved to help with getting it off the ground. Most of our other events are successful but this one needs a little help. So it's time to step up and get involved! The date of the Picnic is Saturday June 22nd. We have the date, now we need a place. 


Friday July 19th, 2019-The Steuben Boat Ride HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THIS YEAR-WE HOPE TO BE BACK IN 2020...


The Steuben Scholarship Golf Outing was held in September of 2018 and it proved to be the best success of 2018. John Louthan, our President and Golf Chairman did a great job with it. Even though we had a light turn out (49 Golfers) the outing  was a tremendous success. How to improve it? : We need our members to get the word out and bring in more golfers. Come On Steubens! Help Us! It is tentatively scheduled for August 26th, 2019.

 

Saturday September 21st-The 62nd Steuben Day Parade. The 2018 Parade was organized incredibly well and we had a lot of help from our membership-we thank all for that. Dave Schleyer, our Parade Chairman did a great job and we look forward to another great event on 9/21/19.


Saturday October 26th, 2019: OUR ANNUAL STEUBEN OKTOBERFEST DINNER DANCE-This event gets a lot of support and can only get better as the years go by. Many Thanks to Our Oktoberfest Committee for making this one of the most popular events. Over the past 3 years attendance has grown from 150 in 2016 to 200 in 2018. Let's get that number up to 225 in 2019.
