Clarence Board joined the Mombasha Fire Company in 1957. Eisenhower was President, the average yearly salary was $4,500; a gallon of gas was $0.24; “Twelve Angry Men” was playing at the movies; Perry Mason debuted on TV; Monroe’s fire trucks were red. Through the decades, so much has changed in society, here in Monroe, and at the Mombasha Fire Company. The one constant in Monroe and at the Mombasha Fire Company is Clarence Board. He has served in many capacities over his 60 years of dedicated service, including Secretary, Chaplin, Assistant Chief, and Chief.  He is currently the Sergeant at Arms. Throughout the years he has also served beyond Monroe’s borders in the Orange County Chiefs Association, Orange County Fire Advisory Board, NY State Chiefs Association, Hudson Valley Volunteer Fire Association, and FASNY (Fire Association of the State of New York. He also served as Vice President and President of the Orange County Volunteer Firemans’ Association. While he no longer fights fires, there’s not a meeting, parade, or civil function that you won’t see him actively participating in.  

We gratefully acknowledge Clarence Board for his 60 years of service and his dedication to serving the residents of the Town of Monroe and Orange County!

Volunteers share skills and interests in a manner that provide comfort and enrich the quality of life for those served. Volunteers provide companionship through presence, listening to music, reading and reminiscing etc.

Today the Village of Kiryas Joel received notification that Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed into law the bills advanced by Senator William Larkin Jr. (R-Cornwall-on-Hudson) and Assemblyman James Skoufis (D- Woodbury) which expedites the process of the Village of Kiryas Joel becoming the Town of Palm Tree.

“We appreciate that Governor Cuomo recognizes and supports the will of the Monroe and Kiryas Joel communities,” said Gedalye Szegedin, Village Administrator for Kiryas Joel. “From the beginning, our only goal for creating the Town of Palm Tree was to establish a solid foundation for a lasting peace between the residents of KJ and the residents of Monroe, by giving both communities independence from the other without any political interference. Today we have finally achieved that goal and have shown that diplomacy and compromise produce better results than acrimony and division.”

There has been widespread support and tremendous enthusiasm for the creation of the new Town of Palm Tree. Among Orange County legislators, the Town of Palm Tree now has won the support of 18 out of 21 members of the legislature. At the local level, the Mayors and all Trustees of the Villages of Monroe, Harriman and Kiryas Joel, as well as the Town Board of Monroe have shown support for the new town. The Boards of the Monroe Woodbury School District and the Kiryas Joel School District both expressed their strong support for Palm Tree. At the state level, the initiative has received the unanimous support of the New York State Senate and Assembly, and the Governor. In the Town-wide referendum vote last year, 85% of Monroe voters showed their support for the new Town of Palm Tree.

Now that Governor Cuomo has signed the legislation into law, the creation of the Town of Palm Tree will occur on January 1, 2019, one year earlier than originally planned.
