The Real Estate Insider

 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE  
By: Jay Webster

Over three hundred and fifty REALTORS® and their families attended the Annual Awards Membership Luncheon Meeting in March.  The luncheon, held at the LaFontaine Bleu, honored the outstanding performance of agents during 1999.  We had many new entrants this year because of the revised rules which made the entry process much easier. Congratulations to Connie Stommel, Chairman, and the Awards Committee for a job well done.  

By the time you receive this Newsletter, we will have held our annual RPAC fundraiser at BET SoundStage.  This event is so important to our fundraising efforts.  I hope that you were able to attend and enjoy the evening.

The Annual REALTORS® Outing will be held on Monday, June 5th,  at the Courses at Andrews Air Force Base. All members should plan to attend this year as there will be something for everyone. Sign up for Golf, Tennis, Volleyball, Horseshoes or even Basketball.  But if that seems too much like work, you can bring your lawn chair and watch the sports events.  Just come and relax with your colleagues. It'll be a fun day for everyone. Detailed information is enclosed in this mailing.

Also don't forget to visit the Association website located at www.pgcar.com.  Education classes as well as other important information is easily accessible there.   If you have suggestions for improving the website, please call Craig at the Association office.

Finally, the Association will sponsor a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross.  The blood drive will be held on May 24th from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Your participation will be appreciated. 

IT'S NOT TO LATE TO SIGN UP FOR 
THE BLOOD DRIVE

The Association in cooperation with the American Red Cross is sponsoring a Blood Drive on May 24, 2000 at the Association office.
