Ho-Ho-Kus June 24, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 11 VFW seeks new members, pro bono attorney by Jennifer Crusco Stanley Kober, commander of the Washington Elm Post 192 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, has put out a call for new members for his organization, which serves Ho-HoKus and Ridgewood. Kober told the Ho-Ho-Kus Borough Council last week that Post 192 wants to sign up an additional five members by the end of June in order to meet its goal of 100 percent paid membership. He asked the council members to pass along the word to friends, relatives, and neighbors who might be eligible for VFW membership. The organization currently has 94 members, he said. Kober also reported that the VFW is seeking a pro bono attorney, preferably a real estate contract lawyer who is a litigator, as Post 192 continues the dispute with the Ramapo Valley Railroad Club. “We’re willing to pay reasonable costs,” Kober added.

Any other action taken by you which prohibits my client access to the subject property will be dealt with rigorously by me.” The railroad club holds a lease that allows its members to use the VFW-owned building on Cliff Street. The terms of the lease, which was renewed in 2002, allow limited access to the VFW, a situation that has been problematic since the veterans’ organization was reorganized and revitalized four years ago.
