Happy Fourth of July!
Emerald Golf Classic: Another great job by Past Presidents Joe Sullivan & Mike McManus and their helpers on the June 1st outing! A full course of players, including Connecticut State Police Emerald Society President Ken Cain, enjoyed a round of golf in great weather and the festivities back at the Hall.
PawSox Trip Recap: On Sunday June 24th, a full busload of kids & parents headed down to McCoy Stadium, meeting up with more Emerald members who drove to catch the PawSox in action. There were as many coolers as adults on the bus for the ride. We occupied almost 4 full rows behind home plate and were out of the sun. “Irish Day” was theme and we fit right in! Five chances were pulled for the five day round trip tour of Ireland and we had two of them. Out on the field the final winner was pulled, with one of our guys, Rob Stowe winning the trip!
Emmet F. McNamara Sr. (ret. Det. BPD) passed away recently, he was one of our founders, earliest members and big supporter. He served on the Eboard and was the brother of Arthur McNamara and father of Emmet Jr. both of whom were Past Presidents.
John “Jack” Smith (ret. U.S. Marshall) also passed away, respected and loved by the membership, he will also be missed.
“Ar dheis De go raibh a n-anam” May their souls be at the right hand of God.
Next Meeting: Thursday July 12, 2012 @8:00 p.m. BPD Squads 5&6 are off!
