Assist the Officer Foundation Donations

The club held a moving ceremony at our weekly meeting on July 15 to remember the five fallen officers from Dallas.  We did not want our show of support to end there.  By consensus we decided to continue our show of support by contributing to the ATO fund created to support the families of these five officers.  Our club foundation will match every member dollar contributed up to $5,000.00.
As a club we are collecting contributions to the fund for one month, from July 15 to August 12.  If you would like to participate, please make your check to the Assist the Officer Foundation.  You can turn your check in to Kathleen Klaviter, Sergeant-at-Arms or Laurie Aldredge, Club Administrator.  We will total the checks at the end of the four weeks to determine the matching amount from our club foundation.  The club will forward all the checks to the Assist the Officer Foundation.
If you would like to learn more about the Assist the Officer Foundation: https://atodallas.org/

RCPC Goes To Beer School

RCPC Beer Imbibers at Total Wine Beer Tasting
RCPCers had a grand time learning the difference between IPA and IBU at the July 12, Beer Tasting Fellowship sponsored by Herb Ziev and hosted at Total Wines and More.  RCPC members sampled--that's sampled, not drank-- 12 different beers from Belgium to the New World learning some of the finer points and distinctions among different beer styles from lagers to stouts to American stouts and more.  Unfortunately, all participants failed the test at the end of session, and have been remanded to repeat the class this fall.  That's what happens when you don't study!!!
