New Year Message 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all public safety members and their families as we start 2016, and we hope that this year will be a happy, healthy, and safe year for our retirees and those who protect us on the street, in the jail, and from raging fires, and those who keep the whole process moving administratively.

The past year was an exciting and event-filled time for all of us. There have been many health issues, loss of loved ones, and injuries throughout the BSORA family, and we wish each family well. If there are special needs or information to be disseminated, please let one of the Board members know and we will see that it gets addressed.

The BSORA really wants to be all inclusive of all BSO retirees from every department and we need your help spreading the word to Detention, Fire retirees, and DROP participants. We have added the Fire Rescue logo to our home page. Last year we were able to add some members from these departments, and we would like to have additional retirees join us.

Requested input from Fire staff has been forthcoming, and we’re working on a design for BSO Fire retiree shirts and hats. This past year we were able to provide assistance/donations to more benevolence situations than any previous year.

The 2015 Biennial Retirees Reunion Banquet was held at the 17th Street Causeway Embassy Suites Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale and was a great success. This is a beautiful venue and attendees enjoyed the beautiful location and a delicious dinner.

Once again George Ferguson put together an amazing slide show. Retired Lt. Bob Baton provided George with pictures of new hires during the 1960’s and 1970’s which created quite a response from the attendees, seeing those “young and eager faces” from days gone by.

The highlight of the presentation was a tribute to Sgt. Bill Bushong who attended with his son, Gary, another BSO retiree. George developed a contest between the tables to name the members of a selected picture and, as always, that was the quiet time of the Reunion when all tables were seriously considering the answers!!!!
