Special Olympics New York - Polar Plunge
On Saturday, March 5, 2016 Lodge 911 participated in the 12th Annual Town
of North Hempstead Polar Plunge held at North Hempstead Beach Park to
benefit the Special Olympics.

Our team, the FOP Lodge 911 Bears in Blue, consisted of 8 volunteer
plungers, Silvio & Santino Sweet, Diana & Jonathan Fuller, Steve & Joseph
Bosco, Rich Altamirano and Erin Maher. Collectively Lodge 911 raised over
$3,000 to benefit the Special Olympic Athletes and we ranked number 3 out
of 49 competing teams in terms of money raised!

The Lodge 911 trailer was transported to the scene by Associate Member
George Cerruto and it provided a changing and warming station for all FOP
members attending the event.  George also donated hot refreshments and
snacks for everyone.  The trailer was also utilized by other police agencies
present at the event which provided a nice atmosphere of camaraderie and
DWI Awareness
The Stop DWI Lodge 911 Mustang has been busy this year starting off with the 2016 Winter Polar
Plunge for Special Olympics then on to the grand opening ceremony for the new Paws of War
location in Nesconset.

On May 15, 2016 we supported the first annual Nassau County Holy Name Society Widows and
Orphan Fund and attended the Blessing of the Cars in Uniondale, NY.

During the Summer Lodge 911 was represented at two events. The first event on June 12, 2016
was the Centurion Cruisers and Police Surgeons Benevolent Association at St. Anthony’s High
School in Huntington honoring fallen NYPD Police Officers Brian Moore and Randolph Holder, both
killed in the Line of Duty during 2015. All of the proceeds went directly to their families.

The second summer event on July 17, 2016 was the Centurion Cruisers Car Club and David Lerner
Charity Car Show held in Syosset, NY to benefit children with Autism.

The Lodge 911 car and trailer were both present at these events to raise awareness of the dangers
of DWI.

Memorial Day 2019 -  "Field of Honor"
Memorial Day is a day set aside each year on the last Monday in May to remember and honor the
members of our military who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

This year, the Fraternal Order of Police Law Enforcement Officers Lodge 911 created a “Field of Honor” to
pay tribute to those in our military who made the supreme sacrifice. Lodge members John Frezza, Mike
Lastihenos, Tom McGovern and Ed Walz made 50 flags which were displayed in front of the Babylon
Masonic Lodge located at 250 West Main St., Babylon, NY.

Members, friends and families of Lodge 911 and the Babylon Masonic Lodge contributed almost
$1,500.00 to sponsor a flag and all of the money collected was donated to the Long Island State
Veterans Home, a 350 bed not-for-profit skilled nursing facility located on the campus of Stony Brook
University which provides short term rehabilitation, skilled nursing care and adult day health care to the
250,000 veterans who reside on Long Island.
Thank you to Lodge member Robert Licata, also a Trustee at the Babylon Masonic Historical Society, who
graciously welcomed the “Field of Honor” to be displayed in front of the Babylon Masonic Lodge and to all
of the other volunteers who assisted putting up and taking down the flags.
The FOP NY Lodge 911 "Field of Honor"
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis we are unable to schedule
our next meeting.
We will email our membership and post the information
when it becomes available.
While we go through this crisis I urge anyone who has a problem
and feels that our Lodge may be able to assist them,
to please contact us.
We will do all in our power to help you.
National Peace Officers Memorial Day -  Police Week
Law Enforcement Officers -  "Field of Honor"
Friday, May 15th, 2020
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the
calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of
Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who
have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
This year, the Fraternal Order of Police Law Enforcement Officers Lodge 911 created a Law Enforcement
Officers “Field of Honor” to pay tribute to those in law enforcement who made the supreme sacrifice in
the line of duty.
It will remain on display in front of the Babylon Masonic Lodge located at 250 W. Main Street, Babylon,
NY thru Saturday, May 23, 2020.
We believe that this is a first of it's kind tribute to appear anywhere in the country and was conceived by
Lodge 911 President James Bosco.
If you do not have the opportunity to pass by and pay tribute to our fallen officers we ask that you
please take a moment on Peace Officers Memorial Day, May 15th, 2020, to reflect on the supreme
sacrifice many of our Law Enforcement officers have made to protect the people of our great country.
We wish to thank all of the donors whose contributions helped us collect over $2,500.00 which will be
given to the NYS FOP Foundation to assist the widows and orphans of law enforcement officers who
were killed in the line of duty in NYS.

Thank you also to Bob Licata and the Babylon Masonic Historical Society for their assistance in hosting
this tribute and to Lodge members Bobby Daddino, Richie Denton, Edward Walz and Tom McGovern for
providing the manpower to erect this memorial to our fallen brothers and sisters.
