Message from the Board


The scholarship awards presentation was amazing!  We have

incredible young people who give hope for a better and ever

changing future.  Thank you to all our members who attended our first in person gathering since the beginning of the pandemic.  For those of you who were unable to attend, you can still “meet” the 2021 scholars online at www.reccs.org.  The scholars created videos about themselves, and they are worth watching.  As always, thank you to all our members who generously donate to support the scholarship program.  We could not do this without each and every one of you. 


What’s Next?


The Board is planning our September luncheon.  We are hopeful for another great turn out and opportunity to meet in person.  Watch for details in the coming months.


The Board takes July off and will resume meeting in August.  Thus, there will not be a July newsletter but watch your email for

upcoming activity announcements and RECCS U courses. 



 Scholarship Update


The scholarship committee is looking for volunteers for the 2022

selection process.  Serving on the scholarship committee is a great way to be involved with RECCS and help choose future scholars.  Scholarship volunteers serve a 3-year term.  The committee meets monthly October—May.  If interested, please contact Rodger Stewart at stewmail66@gmail.com or Michelle Kleve at dmkleve@comcast.net


RECCS Activities


Lavender Festival


Our activities director, Carole Smith has been hard at work and thinking creatively to plan upcoming activities for the RECCS

membership that are safe and comfortable for in person gatherings.
