In a letter from F.O.P. #133 President Al Palacio to our members and extended families:

Brothers and Sisters:

I hope and trust that you had a great weekend with your families. We had a very good time this past Saturday at the picnic. We had bounce houses, a wave slide, face painting, drinks, food galore, volleyball, softball, a DJ, and raffles.


We had 220 + people show up to the festivities, including members of the command staff and newly elected Board Member, Maritere Rojas whom thanked us publicly for our support during her campaign. I hope that in the future we can see more of you there to enjoy your company as well. It was really a great time together!


Al Palacio
President F.O.P. #133


Shorty’s Barbeque catered this awesome event with enough delicious ribs, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs and much more side dishes to feed an army! Even after stuffing ourselves there were plenty of leftovers for those wanting to satisfy their Shorty’s cravings.

The highlight of the picnic came in the last hour when the 7 winners for our yearly raffle were announced by an emcee who sounded much like a top-notch game show announcer…Al Palacio!

Here’s a list of the prizes:

  • (2) 40″ LED TV’s
  • $150 Cash
  • $100 Cash
  • Another $100 Cash
  • (2) High Quality Home Improvement Tool Kits

We look forward to next year’s event. It promises to be spectacular. We’ll see you there!
