NEWS BRIEFS: Had our Christmas Luncheon at the Elk Grove Pavilion and a good time was had by all. The egg nog must have helped. Last year the heavy rains dampened attendance but this year the weather has co-operated and we had a very good turnout. Sheriff Jones was in the Bay area for a State Sheriff’s meeting but he was ably represented by Undersheriff Eric Maness and Chief Deputy Kris Palmer. Elk Grove Chief Bryan Noblett sent his regrets, the PD was hosting their Volunteers Appreciation Luncheon and we all know the value of volunteers to all of our organizations. The raffle table was well stocked with lots of Christmas goodies and our President Judy Denton and Dottie Greene made sure that the tables were all decorated in the spirit of the season. Mike Garcia was on hand to put out a fine lunch for all the members and guests.  

Our next meeting will be the always popular January luncheon at the American Legion Hall in Jackson. This is a sit down lunch is served tableside by the American Legion Auxiliary and this multi course affair has always been one of the most popular and well attended lunches of the year. Our host Sheriff Martin Ryan always makes it a very festive and enjoyable event. If you have not attended one of these, this would be a good one to attend and bring your spouse, friend or guest. They will not be disappointed. After the lunches there is the popular Jackson Rancheria and shopping in the town of Jackson. A trip to Jackson would not be complete without a stop at Swingles Meats, just down the road to stock up on some fine items.  

This month will mark the half way point in our events for the year and looking forward to the last lunch in Lincoln on June 21st. when we will elect the new board and officers for your association. It is not to early to think about new board members for the coming year. Not a great deal of time and effort, but a good way to support the NCPOA and its activities. If you have suggestions or questions about the requirements you may ask any of the board members or our Executive Director.  

Some of you may not know, but the NCPOA web site, www.ncpoa,net has been joined by a Facebook page, check it out and give us a thumbs up “LIKE.” If you don’t know what that means, you are probably not on Facebook!

SAD NOTE: The NCPOA lost two life members this past month. Captain James Feusi, Sacramento Sheriff’s (ret) and Fred W. Links, Sacramento Sheriff’s and Supervising District Attorneys Investigator passed away in December 2017. Both were long time members of the NCPOA and made great contributions to public safety in our community. We also extend our condolences to Sgt Ernie Owen, SSD (ret) whose wife passed away in December. May they rest in peace.  

SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS: Good month for donations, fortunately the scholarships will be awarded in March, so the donations will come in handy. Received a sizable donation from the Cameron Foundation in honor of one of our founders and past president, Sheriff James Cameron, Yolo County. Also, after a spirited auction for an Elk Grove PD challenge coin, Don Savage paid a hefty price which went to the fund. Also, received donations from Doug Duncan, Robert and Sharon Nichols and Ramon Lopez, Jr. who won the monthly drawing and all benefited the Scholarship Fund. Thanks to you all.  

TREASURERS REPORT: The Red Book of luncheon receipts and checkbook expenditures are available at the Treasurer's desk at every meeting. Membership renewals are going great for this year. Remember to pick up your membership card from the Treasurer at the next meeting. If you don’t know if you are current, ask the Treasurer, he has the roster at all the meetings
or email him at rdenham@ncpoa.net. The treasurer will either endorse your membership card or issue you another upon request. We will mail you a membership card upon request if you include a SASE or you may pick yours up at a luncheon.
If you do not have an NCPOA name tag or are having a hard time remembering your name, the name tags are $8 and can be obtained from the Treasurer. 

SECRETARY NOTES: Don’t forget to submit your email address to the web master at rdenham@ncpoa.net. With our membership roster of over 300 plus, we now have over 286 on file. We will continue postal service to those without email connections. If you move or change email address let us know so we can keep in touch.
