Eastern Contractors Association's 60th Annual Steak Roast was held earlier this week at the Polish American Citizens Club in Albany. A large turnout of more than 300 members and guests enjoyed a good time of delicious food & good fellowship and great door prizes were won by many! The Steak Roast also marked the completion of our 38th membership contest. There were 35 new members who joined during the contest this year. ECA members sponsored eight of those new members and by doing so, were eligible for a chance to win one of our grand prize items. Congratulations to Kevin Garrity of Rose & Kiernan, Inc. (large screen HDTV), Tom Carney of TEC Protective Coatings, Inc. (iPad) and Roger Jones of Campito Plumbing and Heating, Inc. ($250 gift card) on taking home the big prizes. Many thanks to them and the other sponsors for their efforts in recruiting new members! ECA's membership now sits at 293 -- the most members we've had in nearly 30 years! THANK YOU for putting your trust in us! Help us continue to grow by recruiting new members and you could be eligible for prizes at next year's Steak Roast! We also had 10 of our new member companies in attendance, with Louis C. Allegrone, Inc. winning the new member prize drawing $300 gift card. Our 50/50 drawing was a huge success as well, with the winner claiming $900! ECA will be donating this year's proceeds from the 50/50 drawing to the St. Peter's Hospice Inn.
