To All E.R.F.F.A. Members:

On November 30, 2011 we lost our good friend and president Bob Schwarz. We all know how much Bob loved the Evanston Fire Department and E.R.F.F.A. He (Margaret) was the one that kept E.R.F.F.A. going over the years. We all will remember Bobs love of a good joke and some that were not so good. He had a real love for life and family. Please keep Bob and his family in your prayers.

At the winter luncheon in December Ronn Gannon and I volunteered to take over E.R.F.F.A. I will be President and Ronn will be the Secretary. We both look forward to the challenge and will do are best for E.R. F.F.A. If you have any suggestions or information, jokes, etc. please sent them to me.

If you go on Local 742 web site at w.w.w.efdlocal742.com, on the left side go to Local 742, drop down to Retiree’s and E.R.F.F.A. Information will be on there.

Looking forward to the spring luncheon.
