The June meeting of the Mid-Mon Valley Shipmates was called to order by CO Bill Hess, followed by the playing of the "Navy Hymn." Opening prayer was given by Rev. Fred Pfeil, followed by the flag salute led by Jack Hoak.


A thank you card was received from the family of James Caccimelio, thanking the shipmates for Two-Bell Service held in his memory. Operation Troop Appreciation, located in Century III, sent in a letter outlining their new procedures in helping veterans.

Fred Owens reported that any veteran that hasn't had his/her DD-214 recorded should get it done ASAP. Whatever county you live in, take it to the Recorder of Deeds office at your county seat and get it recorded , i.e., Washington, Greensburg, Uniontown, Pittsburgh. There is no charge for this service.

The Memorial Day services were well-attended, both the Monessen services and the parade and services on the following day in Monongahela. Thank yous were extended to all those who participated in these two events and/or events in other cities in the Valley. The Shipmates will take part in the annual parade in Finleyville on Wednesday, July 16. The parade starts at 7 p.m. and Shipmates are requested to line up at the parking lot shortly after 6:30.

The annual picnic will be held on Saturday, July 26, at the Social Hall of St Anthony Church in Monongahela. Invitations will be mailed out shortly; please return the reply card only. One free guest per member and additional guests will be assessed $10. Dessert dishes are requested again, and don't forget your door gift.

Patrick Maloy took over the chairman position for the annual Christmas party and will be choosing his committee shortly. If you are asked to be on this committee, please accept the chance to help out. Joe Gallo will continue sending out the invitations and contacting the caterer and Pat will also supply the music for the night.

The executive committee decided that instead of stocking uniforms in the office, all new members will be advised to go to Perfection Embroidery and Monogram, purchase their shirt etc, then present the bill for reimbursement by the MMVSM. White belts, white gloves and the white dixie cup hats are available at the Army Navy Surplus store in California, PA.

Marshal Lignian reported the 2013-14 Flag Presentation program will conclude this coming Friday. The committee attended 36 schools and 5 adult organizations; in attendance were 3,300 students and 600 adults. George Essey reported that the committee traveled over 2,700 miles to the different schools throughout the area.

The dismissal prayer was offered by Chaplain Pfeil and the meeting was adjourned until the next meeting, which will be held on July 1, 2014 at 7 p.m.
