Bressler, Amery & Ross recently hosted a group of Boy Scouts and leaders from Puerto Rico. The group spent the week of July 23 at Sabattis Adventure Camp in the Adirondacks, approximately 75 miles from Lake George in New York.
Bressler, Amery was one of the main sponsors and paid the camp fees for the group. In September 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico hard, causing damage, flooding and mudslides. Power was knocked out, and fresh water became a commodity. BSA facilities in Puerto Rico were similarly affected. Their scout summer camp suffered severe damage during Hurricane Maria. In many towns and villages, Scouting units were among the first organized groups to respond after the storm. ‘To help other people at all times’ took on a life of its own as Scout groups cleared debris, distributed food and water, cooked meals, and helped those who needed it.
Leading the effort for Bressler was Mark Tallmadge, a principal at the firm, who spends his off-time as a leader in Patriots’ Path Council, Boy Scouts of America. He serves as a Practice Group Leader for Bressler and is also the firm’s Chief Financial Officer. Tallmadge’s practice focuses on litigation with a concentration in defense of professional liability and insurance coverage litigation.
Tallmadge, an Eagle Scout, serves as the Executive Vice-President for Patriots' Path Council and will assume the position of President in 2019. He has served on its Executive Board since 2007 including a term as Council Commissioner, one of the “Key 3” leaders of the Council. Patriots’ Path Council serves 16,000 scouts in Northern and Central New Jersey.
