The Board Members of the BRPBA would like to take this moment and thank you for all you do for the organization and the Distress Fund.  Without you, we are nothing.  These past few months have been trying for all and we were saddened to have to cancel our meetings where so many gather to get an update, enjoy good food, meet new friends, and reminisce with old friends.

It is the time of year when we renew our commitment to the BRPBA Distress Fund with our yearly raffle.  It will be mailed the first week of September.  As promised, we have removed over eight hundred names from our mailing list of members and widows who do not purchase tickets.  This saves the Distress Fund some much needed money and saves our members from having to throw them in the trash.

Again, thank you very much for your continued support of this very important yearly drive to replenish the Distress Fund.  Due to Covid19, we haven’t had any requests for help in the first four months of this year, but we suspect that will change very shortly as people try to dig themselves out of the bind of being out of work for months at a time. 

Before I sign off, I want everyone to remember. The BRPBA is here for you and wants every one of you to know that we are only a phone call away if you need financial help or even emotional support.  We can listen, or we can help you find someone in your area who will help. You are not alone.  Call Patrick Youells at 443-695-4202 or myself at 410-803-2293.

Take care, stay safe, stay well.
