CHAPTER 50 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 chapter will host a FLEOA/IPA/FOP picnic at Owen Beach, Pt. Defiance, located just minutes away west of the Highway I-5 and SR-16 interchange in Tacoma, WA. It’s a good old fashioned family style barbeque. Pets are welcome on leashes-cats included. Go to www.metroparkstacoma.org, then click on ‘Parks and Facilities’, ‘Beaches and Boats’, ‘Owen Beach’, ‘click here’ (in blue font), and then either ‘Owen Beach’ or ‘View picnic shelter photo gallery’ (in blue font at the bottom of the window). In the photo gallery, there are several pictures of the picnic grounds and waterfront at Owen Beach. It is a gorgeous and beautifully appointed place to host a picnic, so make it a point to bring your family and friends (and furry friends). For FLEOA members and their guests, there is no charge other than showing up. In addition to the last article, if you have a favorite side dish or dessert you would like to share, feel free to bring that too…we will be grateful in advance! Parking is provided free by the park just a couple of minutes walk from the picnic site. We are expecting great weather, but do bring a light jacket/sweater as a breeze off Puget Sound often shows up by the mid-afternoon. This is the only invite notice the chapter is publishing, so we hope to see you there! On Monday, August 22, 2011, the DEA Seattle Field Division will host the 8th Annual Seattle Field Division 2011 Golf Tournament and Luncheon Raffle/Auction, which will be held this year at the Fairwood Golf & Country Club in Renton, WA. For the $125 registration fee, you get the driving range, 18 holes of golf, a golf cart, snacks while golfing, a great lunch and beverages (while on the course and at lunch). Check-in/registration will occur mid-morning complete with some great giveaways, followed by 18 holes of golf, followed by the luncheon and raffle/auction. Registration can be found at www.deamemorial.org (under the “Golf Tournament” tab) and which will list the who, where, what, when, why, and how of the tournament. Consider participating in the raffle and/or auction for some awesome prizes/items, the proceeds of which will go to a most worthy cause. All you will have to do is to follow the website directions, and stand by to have another great day of golf, food, drink, and fellowship! FLEOA Chapter 50, along with several great vendors, will be co-sponsoring the tournament.

CHAPTER 65 NEBRASKA Chapter 65 held a meeting March 25, 2011 to conduct business and to watch basketball games from the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Men's basketball championship. There was plenty of pizza and beverages to go around. Chapter President Tim Kasun presided over the meeting. Agencies represented by the members include HIS, ATF&E, HHS-OIG, SSA, IRS-CI, and a retired member from IRS-CI. The following was discussed at the meeting: • There was discussion about putting together kits for National Missing Children’s Day. The parents/guardians of the children will put pictures, DNA samples, and other pertinent information in the kit to turn over to law enforcement officials in the event the child is missing. Tim Kasun has a tent that can be set up outside of sporting events, stores, and other locations to distribute kits. • Other outreach ideas were discussed. One item brought up was to volunteer at Mission For All Nations, which provides food and personal use products to families who cannot afford to purchase them. Help can include assisting families to pick out supplies or to help with stocking items in the pantry. Long time member and past Chapter 65 President, Mark Kula was presented with the Department of Veterans Affairs Police Supervisor of the Year. If you have an idea for outreach, community service, or just plain having a good time at an event, let the chapter know! FLEOA Chapter 65 belongs to its members and needs your help to bring forward ideas. Be prepared to own your idea. You take the lead to organize the event and the chapter officers will make sure the event gets funded if at all possible. The following gmail accounts have been set up for officers. If you are an officer, you should have received an email with the password to access the email account for your position. The email accounts also have the contact list to send emails to members. Any questions accessing the account should be forwarded to Ed Sealock.
