From the Chapter President:
Our meetings are normally the second Thursday of every month but Dec will be on the 7th at 1300, American Legion. PLEASE mark your calendars.
What a year 2017 has been for the CPOA, here are a few fun facts:
* We started 2017 with $1200 in the bank, this year we are starting 2018 with $5000.
* Our goal for 2017 was $7000, we raised $14,505.82.
* 2016 we gave away the FIRST CPOA Scholarship for $1000, 2017 we DOUBLED it to $2000.
* Attendance when I took over as president started with about 4 or 5 Coasties, and has slowly built to the highest ever with 21 Coasties last meeting.
* Our accomplishments:
Coastie Emergencies: $1550
Community Support: $7318
Support for CG: $1781
We are so excited for what 2018 brings! We hope you consider joining this year. It can get over whelming as we grow and your support is definitely needed!
Our DECEMBER meeting is to make a 2018 spend plan, so if you have ideas, please come prepared! We are also going to go over fund raising ideas.
Thank you all for your support!
