February 2022

I hope this finds everyone doing well. The lodge held a “social gathering” on February 8th, 2022. I had all intentions of a regular meeting, but Hillsborough County is still under a state of emergency.

The dinner was held and there was not a meeting.

The lodge served our normal steak, chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs. Brother Gage and Brother Hugh Williamson assisted me in the grilling of the steaks. The weather was wet, but everyone still had a good time.

50/50 was held.

As you may have heard, I retired from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on January 7th after 43 years. I am going to remain active in the lodge and will be providing a point of contact within the office since I no longer have an office email nor mail. I will keep everyone posted on the point of contact. The point of contact within the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is Buddy Rudolph and can be reached at CRUDOLPH@teamhcso.com

I can always be contacted at JGCoueyFOP108@aol.com.

Please keep the following loved ones in your prayers. Pete Escobio, Sean Peters, JJ Marcano and Frank Quaglia all recently passed.

Our next meeting will be March 8th.

Be safe, keep everyone in your prayers.


John Couey
