Holiday Greetings RSAMCC Members!
Before we gear up to celebrate the holidays, welcome family and friends to your homestead and ring in 2019 … breath and reflect on all that has been accomplished!
Super Sign-Up: This event single handedly recruited 100+ members. The Executive Board Members, as well as General Board Members were highly energized, organized and went above and beyond the call of duty to exemplify our ideals of good fellowship. The RSAMCC board members “flamingled” with prospective members at large with creative presentations and sweet southern hospitality.

Wreaths Across America:
One dedicated Ways and Means Board Member, Fern Brazda has set a goal to sell 150 wreaths by December 3 and lay those wreaths with 30 RSAMCC members on December 15, 2018. Help Fern exceed the goal – for each wreath sold, $5.00 is returned to RSAMCC. Even if you are unable to lay the wreaths, your donation is not only an act of love for our veterans, but a means of support for our organization and the needs of the community.
