City of Shelton, Police Chief, Darrin Moody speaks with 
Mason County Association of Realtors
 
 
Chief Moody joins MCAR at their June General Membership luncheon to discuss how they can best safeguard themselves when showing vacant homes and land.

Chief Moody also shared that our community experiences mostly crimes against property and it has been a number of years without any offenses that involve homicide, but that we continue to struggle with activities that go along with our homeless population as well as those that live at or below the poverty level.
 
He further suggested that we might promote "Neighborhood Watch" organizations, as neighborhoods that form such groups, show far fewer activities that result in police intervention.
 
He also advised Realtors to save the Non Emergency Dispatch number
360-426-4441 for reporting any suspicious activity that they may witness.
Rescheduled for September 10th Details to follow

The Mason County Association of Realtors have stepped up to the plate for the kids in need at our local schools
President Lori Brady-Dolby has worked with the staff at the Mt. View Elementary school to establish a program we call Angels and Cherubs.
Mason County Realtors and Affiliates can choose to "Adopt" a student in need for the year and supply needed items like socks, pants, coats, all kinds of clothing and school supplies.
This is a win-win program, the kids are assigned by the school and no names or identity are exchanged you get a child's age, size and some needs. From there you can supply needs monthly or when ever you want to send something to this student.  Lives are changed by someone caring for them.
The Association voted this year to send the auction funds from the Installation to the school for start up items for kids coming to the attention of the school staff. The out pour of support at the auction and since has been fantastic and a little tear jerking. Raising over $7000 dollars. 
Vickie Nunez named Affiliate of the Year at the 2018 Installation dinner 
Nominations are sent in from the entire membership, a group of peers go through them and pick the most qualified. Vickie Nunez no doubt has earned this award.
She serves on the BOD as the Treasurer, Chairman of the Oysterfest, Contributor to RPAC dessert functions, sponsors RE classes and jumps in when she is needed.
Vickie has promoted and collected for the annual school supplies drive that has grown more and more under her chairmanship. Congratulations again to Vickie Nunez Affiliate of the year!
Congratulations to Keith Fuller 2017 REALTOR OF THE YEAR
During the 2018 Board of Directors installation dinner Keith Fuller was named Realtor of the Year by a vote of the membership and a selection panel of peers 
Keith has been a member of the Mason County Association for 40 years and has served on the Washington State CRS Chapter as President in 2015.
Keith is a 3 year State Director of the Mason County Association of Realtors. Attends the business conferences & returns with a complete report to the membership. 
Keith shows leadership skills and shares great ideas with the BOD at every monthly meeting.
Congratulations Keith!!
