Richard Blake, former employee passes

Chief Richard J. Blake

It is with deep regret that the Chiefs Office of the St. James Volunteer Fire Department announces that Past Chief Richard J. Blake has answered his last alarm. We ask that you please keep Richard and his family in your prayers at this most difficult time.

“Richie” as we knew him worked at FRC for a time and would stop by to visit after he retired. Sometimes he would ride his bike (always a Harley) all the way to NY from Florida.

He transitioned to a three wheeled version (pictured below) in around 2009 when we all gathered around to admire it in the parking lot, but we remember some similarly beautiful two wheeled version of his from years before as well. Richie was born in 1928 which means he was 81 when he rolled in on this bike which none of us realized at that time.

Terri Hines, receptionist and office assistant, retires

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Mark Roth, Operations Manager, spoke at Terri’s retirement party on Tues, Oct 15 and he said everything so well we thought we’d just provide his speech in its entirety here!

Terri joined FRC in March of 2002 and has worked for us now for almost 18 years. I am both happy and sad that Terri has chosen to retire. I joined FRC and worked with Terri for a little more than 5 years. Since Terri has been employed by FRC for longer than I worked here I decided to talk to some of my fellow employees to get some history to help me write this speech.

Toh Meng, President of FRC was going to be away for Terri’s retirement party so stopped by for Terri’s last Long Island gig at the Rocky Point Ale House to say goodbye

FRC Summer Food Drive

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018

Earlier in the summer FRC’s own Lisa Radesco started a program to encourage employees to donate food to the Long Island Cares Summer Food Drive. The Summer Food Drive is a tradition of the Harry Chapin Food Bank (which the folk songwriter from Long Island founded one year before his tragic death on the Long Island Expressway in 1981) and promoted by our local business association, HIA-LI. Donation boxes were set up around our facility to collect non-perishable food. To extend our outreach a bit we have set up a partner page at YouGiveGoods.com where you can purchase food for donation to the cause online. Our online goal is a modest 200 lbs.

Click the image to donate!

When you shop online, YouGiveGoods will email you a tax deductible receipt and all donations will be shipped at the close of the drive directly to the charity. Visit our page frequently to check our progress.

Drive ends on September 15th 2018
