Monthly Membership Meeting
Our general membership meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month. Dinner is at 6:00 pm followed by our membership meeting at 7:15 pm. In addition to a steak and chicken dinner with all the trimmings, our meeting affords the opportunity to inform our members of the current events of the lodge, solicit input from our members and hear from special guests. It is only through our collective and concerted efforts to organize, to become active and involved, that we might make a huge difference in the outcomes that effect us. We have nearly 1,400 members of FOP Lodge 43, of which between 100 and 200 members regularly attend monthly meetings. Participation is the key to success and that begins with you making the decision to attend the meeting this month. So mark it in your calendar today and come out for a great dinner and good meeting
Annual Awards Banquet
The FOP Pinellas Lodge 43 Annual Awards Banquet is held in January every year. This formal event brings together law enforcement officers together to honor those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. FOP members, their families, peers, department leaders and importnat dignitaries attend this annual event during which our monthly award winners are honored and a Law Enforcement Officer of the Year is named. The festivities begin with an informal meet and greet opportunity in our ever so popular hospitality room followed by a delicious sit down dinner. Our program includes the installation of our lodge officers and recognition of a Member of the Year, Officers of the Month and the Officer of the Year. The evening concludes with a night of music and dancing in the ballroom.
State Memorial Trip
Join FOP members from around the State of Florida during the Annual Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Service in Tallahassee. The Memorial is located on the courtyard of the State Capital. It is inscribed with the names of every law enforcement officer in Florida lost their lives in the line of duty.
The trip is fully sponsored by local, district and state FOP lodges. Several events take place during the two day event, including a welcome barbeque dinner, candlelight vigil, parade and memorial service for our fallen brother and sisters. If you have never attended a memorial trip, this is an experience you will never forget.
Every year between the dog days of summer and cool days of winter, your FOP brothers and sisters gather in the midst of fall for a fun filled day of Gernan music, food and drink. A good time is always had by all. See you next October!
Children's Christmas Party
A time honored favorite! This is a day of celebration with our kids as we approach their favorite day of the year. A day of fun filled games and food filled bellies leads to a visit from Good Ole St. Nick. Every child gets to visit our special Santa and leaves with a special gift.
