1) The Merchandise Committee is excited to announce our 2018 Greater New York COA Calendars are ready for purchase!

Please click on our NYCOA Store link to view the merchandise photos, descriptions, and order form --> New York COA Store

Once there, navigate around the website, and there you will find a preview screen shot (photos also in our merchandise factsheet) of the January month from the calendar, so you can get an idea of how the product looks. It is an easel calendar (5x7) which we are confident will dress up your desk each month and serve as a stylish gift for all PHS families to appreciate. Easels come on a wood block with hard cardboard calendar sheets; a very sleek and modern look. We are very happy with the product and hope you too will feel similarly!

We had a lot of fun putting this project together for you and your families to enjoy for the holidays. Photographs include NYCOA officers involved in various PHS activities highlighting esprit de corps and officership, including a Social Event and Veterans Day Parade photograph with Surgeon General, Jerome Adams, the very first Parade attended by our current Surgeon General!  Another calendar highlight includes NYCOA officers featured on the Dr. Oz Show with our former Surgeon General, Vivek H. Murthy. The calendars were ordered on Saturday evening from Shutterfly and we were able to take advantage of a 40% off sale as well as free, expedited shipping as a military discount. This ensured we were able to keep the cost down, at $22.00 each, while being sure to have them ready for purchase just in time for the holidays! 

Also, on our NYCOA Store, we have the updated NYCOA Merchandise Order Form where you can , which can be used to place orders for calendars, as well as coins, t-shirts, and ID reels. We are extremely grateful to all officers who took the time to provide us with photographs allowing us to put together the most comprehensive calendar for our Branch! 

Thank you all for your support of our NYCOA mission! Happy Holidays to all!
