Remember, our new mailing address is P.O. Box 417, Throggs Neck Station, Bronx, N.Y. 10465. Thanks to the crew for doing some SAL mailings for me. The first meeting in the next chapter of Korony Post 253 will be at American Turners (the Turner Club) on the third Sunday in September at 11 a.m.


Important Notice

The Bronx VA Medical Center is conducting a study of Gulf War Illness Syndrome. If you or someone you know has headaches, sleep and muscular symptoms associated with Persian Gulf military service, please call the VA and inquire about their ongoing studies.

Homeland Security

I didn’t know our infrastructure includes over 600 bridges with one out of four in need of immediate structure repair. In order for America’s supplies to keep moving (and obvious disasters), this problem is in need of work. Also, are you personally ready in case of local emergencies? Ready NY is a good, common sense booklet and is available from 311, as is an automated phone notification of weather emergencies in our coastal area as a test project.

Until Next Time

You know you’re getting old when you check the cereal box for the fiber content instead of the  toy.
