NEWS BRIEFS: Though Sheriff Tom Lopez was unable to attend, Police Chief Luis Soler graciously came by to welcome us to Woodland before leaving to participate in the Yolo County Peace Officers memorial. Officer Mike Simpson attended on behalf of CHP Captain Ivan Tien. Since Yolo County celebrates their Memorial on the 3 rd Thursday each year, it seems appropriate that our May meeting date needs to change and we will consider changing next years to the 3 rd WEDNESDAY. The attendance in Woodland was disappointing . We guaranteed 55 meals and only 32 of you showed up. That means our check book suffered badly due to the poor attendance.
It was good to see our Treasurer, Bob Denham join us for the meeting. He spoke of his continued progress with treatments and that he was glad to be with us. He will continue to handle NCPOA business from home and says he appreciates the emails he receives from YOU ALL.
Bringing in New members and paying your dues on time are what keeps the NCPOA a vibrant and functioning organization. If your dues are due in June, you should receive an addressed envelope with this month’s newsletter. Your membership date is shown on the label, if it is 6/30/2019 that is your expiration date, and if the date is before that you must have already missed a payment. Dues are $25 per year and you can just put your check in the envelope, stamp it and send it in. Thank you, from your Treasurer.
This month will be the tenth of the luncheons for the year and we are looking forward to the lunch in Lincoln on June 20 TH, when we elect the new board and officers for your association. We need members to step up and show some interest in keeping NCPOA a worthwhile organization. Val and Bob have been at the forefront of running NCPOA for many years, and are getting tired. Not a great deal of time and effort, but it is necessary to enlist some new help to ensure that NCPOA will continue to support students at CSUS that are the future of Law Enforcement. 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.
ATTENTION Car Buffs: NCPOA was involved in a car show held at FRY’S Electronics in Roseville on Saturday May 11 th. Pre ’79 cars were displayed. Our President Chris Champlin proudly displayed his Mustang convertible and Life Member Tony Martinis, dressed in his gala roadster suit had his silver roadster there. It was a great fund raiser for the Roseville K9 corps. If you missed this year’s show, watch for future events we may be involved in that will be appropriate for our members.
SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS: The auction by President Champlin raised scholarship funds from Tom Guichard, Allen Ward and Nancy Wolfe. In addition, Harlan Dobyn’s and Kelly Hoffer made their annual donations as well as Marcia Whitaker the winner of our attendance drawing who chose to donate her winnings to the scholarship fund. We Thank You for your continued support.
NEW MEMBERS: We have two new members: Jack Campbell and William Gaede, both retired from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. Welcome to NCPOA.
SAD NOTE: Member Tom Leonard, retired from the California Department of corrections, passed away on May 17, 2019 at the age of 81. Pat O’Neal, retired from Sacramento Sheriff Department passed away at home May 26, 2019 at the age of 79. Rest in peace old friends.
TREASURERS REPORT: The Red Book of luncheon receipts and checkbook expenditures is temporarily unavailable due to our Treasurers illness, but any questions about the NCPOA finances can be directed to our Executive Director Val Kobza who is filling in for Bob. Also, see Val if you want to take care of your dues – he has the roster at all the meetings. 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 or his assistant.
SECRETARY NOTES: Don’t forget to submit your email address to the web master at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of our membership roster of over 300 plus we now have over 300 emails on file.
