Alvin RC - Charity Fund Raiser Fun Fly

by Benny Behrens   December 15, 2018

This year Alvin RC Model Airplane Association had to cancel their Charity Fun Fly due to rain and wet field conditions. At the club’s last meeting it was decided to ask for donations and as a result of this effort we were able to give the Sheriff $700 in $50 gift cards for distribution to less fortunate folks by his deputies. Below is a letter from the Sheriff expressing his appreciation:

“CHARLES S. WAGNER
SHERIFF
BRAZORIA COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
3602 COUNTY ROAD 45
ANGLETON, TEXAS 77515
{979) 864-2214

Mr. Benny Behrens, President
Alvin Radio Control Model Airplane Association


On behalf of myself and the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office I want to thank you and all members of the Alvin Radio Control Model Airplane Association for your contribution to the citizens of Brazoria County.

I understand that this year due to extreme weather you were unable to hold your "Fly ln Fundraiser" but instead members of the club donated $700.00 which you wish to contribute to the Sheriff s Office in the form of cash cards. The Sheriff’s Office through its deputies will identify citizens in need some still from the effects of the last three years of flooding and other hardships and will then distribute these cash cards to those citizens.

Again, I wish to thank you and your fellow members for such a generous act and for giving the Sheriff's Office a chance to be a part of your team to help those in need.
Sincerely,
Charles S. Wagner, Sheriff
Brazoria County, Texas”

Thanks to everyone that contributed and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year full of great flying weather...Benny
