PBA BBQ Pictures

Well, I am most happy to report that the PBA BBQ was a great success!  We had about 100 members attend to enjoy 12-ounce steaks, Lundberg’s road kill chili and raffle prizes.  It was nice to see old car partners, team members and PD alumni getting together and talking about the old times.
Heartfelt thanks to the following who helped to prep the BBQ, grill the steaks, and man the bar:

  • Larry Lundberg, Armando Elemen, Bill Santos, Glenn Harper, Terry Handforth, Bob Kosovilka, Brian Bennert, Rich Frazier, Bob Moir, Larry Reuter
  • Thank you, Craig Clifton, for taking the photos
  • Thank you, Ken Jacksteit, for continuing your efforts in putting together the bulletin, or as it will now be known as, “Mattos Mail Bag”
  • Thank you, to all the members who were able to attend to those who support the association 

Margie Thompson formally became a dues paying Associate Member; welcome aboard!
Condolences to the families of the following:
Retired Lt. Robert (Bob) Hollars
Retired Lt. Norvel (Norv) Pulliam
Raffle prizes donated by: Jim Silvers (SJPD Ford Interceptor model car), Al McCulloch (Wine) Dave Dulong (Wine, Flashlights), Andy Layne (Wine), Ernie Hernandez (Brandy), Rodger Cripe (Polo shirts/Caps from the Mattos collection) and your PBA (pocket knives, 49er item, coffee mugs).  All contributions are very much appreciated, thank you!
A happy birthday to the July members and to the winners of the $25 monthly birthday gift cards:

  • Mike Mendez (Olive Garden)
  • Felipe Flores (Shell gas card)
  • Scott Savage (Dunkin Donuts) 

Receiving individual recognition prizes/awards were:

  • Gilbert Torres, for longest trip (2282 miles) from Tennessee (POA souvenir gift pack)
  • Jim Guido, for the oldest living PBA member in attendance (US Mint LEO commemorative coin)

Lastly, it will take a bit for all the photos to download when you receive the email. It will be well worth the wait; Ken painstakingly added the names as best as I could recall and provide, I hope you enjoy.
Please ensure the PBA has your correct mailing address.  Updates can be sent to Larry Lundberg:

2 Thoughts on “PBA BBQ Pictures

  1. What a classic bunch of photos?!?!!! Totally blown away by how well our guys all look!!! Thanks to the photographer. Thanks to POA for organizing. Thanks to you, Leroy, for collating and sending out to us. A jillion years worth of history and unparalleled public service …. and 10-times that many stories to tell! Sorry to have missed this opportunity and hoping to make the next such gathering, if in town at the time. My best to each of those who made it/and in the photos.
