NEWS BRIEFS: The NCPOA is starting a new year with the first luncheon in Grass Valley. We will welcome the new officers, President Judy Denton, Vice President Chris Champlin and Sgt at Arms Hal Barker. Always a great time in Grass Valley with the luncheon both cooked and served by Sheriff Keith Royal and his able staff. A great opportunity to get out of the heat in the valley and enjoy a nice drive in the foothills. Shops in Grass Valley and Nevada City always offer some unique products and bargains.  
Congratulations to Chief Daniel Hahn, Sacramento PD, who will be our host at the October 19th luncheon. And our long-time member Jim Maccoun has been chosen as the newest Chief of Police for Roseville. We wish you both great success in your new positions, and will see you at our future events. 
We will be openning the 2017/2018 scholarships this month and hope for a great response. The scholarships will be awarded at the March 15th luncheon in Sacramento. The college has committed to broadly recruiting qualified candidates and Chief Mark Iwasa, CSUS PD said that he has several officers and staff that will be very competitive applicants. This is both the future of public safety and our commitment to our philanthropic goals.  
While we had some outstanding lunches in 2016/2017 our numbers have been down. The unfortunate passing of some of our loyal and dedicated members may have contributed to the decrease, but it is a reminder that ours in an organization that depends upon membership and every member should be an active recruiter of both active and retired personnel from any public safety or correctional agency. We value and welcome not just sworn personnel but all employees and associate members.  
Customarily, the NCPOA meets on the third Thursday of the month, however scheduling venues sometimes presents the requirement that meeting dates be moved. This year we meet in November on the 9th, December on the 14th and May on the 24th. Mark your calendars accordingly. 

SAD NOTE: Long time member Howard Mehl, CHP (ret) passed away in June. We were also informed that former member, Glen Lewis who had moved to NC, passed away in March. May they rest in peace.  

SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS: The scholarship fund remains healthy and we will have sufficient funds to award this year’s scholarships. We have received donations from Kelly Hoffer, Dorothea Greene, Bill and Margriet Roloson, Peter Scordakis, Oliver Acuna, Bill Mullis, and Garth Tanner. Dennis Larson won June’s member drawing and donated the check to the scholarship. Thank you all for your generous donations.  


NEW MEMBERS: Barbara Smith, our raffle shopper, became our newest Life Member. Maria Sandoval, POST and Dale Waaler, CHP & LAPD (ret) joined at the June luncheon. Maria has expressed an interest in having POST co-host the November luncheon with West Sacramento PD and we will welcome their participation. Welcome aboard to all.
