May Meeting Cancellation

Fellow Emeralds,

The May meeting, which was to take place on May 6th, of the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society has been cancelled. Your Board unanimously agreed and voted to cancel this meeting due to our schedule conflicts caused by the many observances of Police Memorial Day which are taking place throughout the month. Many of you are taking part in Police Memorial ceremonies at the local, state, and national level. I encourage all Emerald Society members to remember the fallen and their familes and friends they left behind in their words, actions, and prayers!

Our Los Angles Police Emerald Society Pipe and Drum Band will be representing us at the California State Police Memorial Ceremony proudly and with honor!

I, along with Pipe Major Scott Walton, and Brother Mike Apodaca will be representing our Society in Washington, D.C.! If any other members are planning to attend the National Ceremony please let me know so we can share the experience as fellow Emeralds.

While May 15th is Police Memorial Day and we will be participating in special memorial events, let everyone know that our fallen and those they left behind are always remembered and never forgotten every day of the year!

We salute the fallen and remember the National Police Memorial motto---

"In Valor there is Hope"

Benefit for Ruben Matthew Ramirez

(Click on flyer to enlarge)
The following event information is from Society member Bill Robertson

Dear Friends:

I have attached a flyer for a very special event this Sunday, April 26, 2009 @ 5:00 pm.

The event is an evening of Jazz, Rock and Blues for the benefit of Ruben Matthew Ramirez ~ Children First.

We will also have a Silent Auction featuring sports memorabillia, animated cells, Thomas Kinkaid fine art, as well as, a raffle with many great prizes!!!

This is the inaugural event of Chidren First, which is a non-profit organization working to reach at-risk youths to prevent child abouse.

Ruben was only 18 months old when he died as a result of child abuse. I am working very closely with Ruben's mother and grandmother to get this worthwhile memorial organization off to a good start.

Tickets are $10.00.

It is at the Sage Restaurant in Whittier. There will be a no host menu and bar. I had dinner there last night. The food is outstanding and the chef promises that you will have excellent choices on the menu.

I will be the MC for the evening, so I would love to get a large group of my friends to come out and support this great cause.

I am looking forward to see my friends from: The Los Angeles Police Emerald Society, the Hollywood Republicans, Upsilon Omicron Alumni Association, the Parrotheads, Coldwell Banker, GEM Mortgage, Prudential CA Realty, Bristol Home Loans, etc, my friends in the entertainment business, etc.

So, bring your credit cards, check books and/or good old American cash!!!

I hope to see you there.
