Prez Sez - October 2014

Prez Sez

Our Beloved LeaderThe 2014 Reunion in Baton Rouge has come and gone, and a good time was had by all! I want to thank the RAFINCO team for all the hard work and effort they put into this event (Bill, Harry, Jeff, and their wives, to name a few key players, did a great job). Our next Reunion in 2016 will be in Las Vegas, October 12-16. It will again be sponsored by RAFINCO (Jeff Penick will be our Host). Reunion 2018 will be sponsored by RAFINO in the Fall of 2018 at Shades of Green, Disney World, Orlando, Florida.


"Times -a-wasting" We aren't getting younger! Looking at some of the pictures from this last Reunion I wondered who the Old Man was next to Glenna, realized it was me. It was great getting together with people we all have known for more years than we care to mention. You need to come to the next one! Also, reach out now to others you know to join us.


The slate of officers we had over the last two years were re-nominated and elected for the next two years. We have established a few new Committees: The first headed up as chair to look into the possibility of  further consolidating functions or merging RAFINO and RAFINCO, was accepted by Russ Dowden. The second committee to research and present worthy causes for a donation not to exceed $5,000 in the future, is chaired by Bill Bayliss. The third committee established to reach out to our retired Finance Corps Officers, to grow our membership is chaired by Kevin Troller. If any of these areas interest you, please contact these chairman, they will be glad to have you on their committee.


More information concerning these Reunions and these newly established committees can be found on our RAFINO Website. Staying active in our organization, keeping in touch, and seeing members from our Military Family from years past at a Reunion is something you will never forget. I can be reached at jrmartens@verizon.net , feel free to contact me if you have any thoughts or questions.
Our Best to you and your family,


Jim Martens
