President’s Message


Joseph J. Ramondetta

Being asked to serve as the next president of The Hundred Club of Connecticut is a great honor that I am humbly accepting as the Club completes its 50th year.  Founded in 1967 this organization continues to be acknowledged as “The Club With a Heart”, assisting the surviving families that have suffered the greatest loss; that of  loved one who was serving their community in the line of duty as Police, Fire or Corrections Officer in the State of Connecticut.

Our programs assist in areas of financial hardship that includes an initial death benefit as well as special needs expenses for the surviving family members.  Education costs are a significant burden and the Hundred Club has established scholarships for all family members for public and private institutions for higher education.  The stress of financial responsibility can be somewhat lessened by knowing that these programs are available and we are available and will assist the families in charting the best path moving forward.  Our most important mandate is to remain in contact with families so that we can assist and serve them forever.

As a member of the Club for more than 35 years, I believe in its work and the manner in which the Board of Directors, Managing Director and members all pledge themselves to the original vision of helping the families.  My goal during my tenure is to build our membership to broaden our revenue and strengthen our long term commitment.  I am asking each member to consider sponsoring a new member to help in attaining this goal.  An increase in membership will insure our ability to move the Club into the next 50 years, always caring for those families whose loved ones have been tragically lost while serving and protecting us.
