What is important about the pictures above is that our special invited guests took the time to visit and share with our members and yet to be members.   

Among the attendees at the Informational Meeting were Unit Officers from other NARVRE units.  David Rosse from Barstow unit, Larry Philippi from San Bernardino unit and our Master of Ceremonies Bob Aparicio from Los Angeles unit.

Several of our Health Groups were invited to attend and set up booths.  This is a great opportunity for our members to visit with and get the facts on health programs that help our members.  We are certainly glad that they can come and take part in our Informational Meetings they are welcome guests and participants. It seems we often do not give these people the recognition they deserve and we need to do that.  They are special and offer so much.
