New Business:

The College of the Desert Public Service Academy will graduate this year on December 17th
instead of June. The Scholarship Committee has sent out applications for a LPOA
Scholarship. We will be selecting one person for this award. The graduation begins at 1800
hours at the McCallum Theater.

Joe has volunteered to review our by-laws to assure we are current and up to date.

Manny- We discussed the Tour De Palm Springs. Because of scheduling conflicts with most
members in past years, it was suggested we skip this year. This year it will conflict with the
Indio Date Festival. David Chandler motioned we not do this event in 2010. Ruben
seconded. Motion passed. Manny will contact organizer Mark Paul.

David Chandler has volunteered to use his company’s media contact person to also provide
us (LPOA) with some coverage on our Turkey and Toy Drives.

Damian has experienced with a variety of different items with our logo on it to see how it
looks. He showed us a paper tablet, mouse pad, ink pen to name a few.

Manny apologized to both Mark and Dan for not having them in the picture at last
month’s meeting with Imperial County Sheriff Ray Loera. Sheriff (an LPOA member)
Loera presented Manny with the plaque. The plaque was for their participation in the
Yuma Border Sheriff’s gathering on September 22nd. Mark and Dan posed for a photo with
the plaque.

Sabas motioned that we purchase a digital camera for the Historian. Manny believed we
should be able to get a really good one with lots of memory for under $150. Dan seconded.
Motion passed.

DUES ARE DUE IN JANUARY

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at El Campanario restaurant in
Indio. Hope to see you there – 5:30 pm.



Meeting adjourned at 1837 hours.
