This has been a busy month so far; all of our RealSource Committees have been meeting and planning for the balance of the year.

On Thursday March 9th the RPAC committee held their auction at the Abbey at Ramsey Country Club. There were over 80 attendees and the committee raised over $4,300.00. Congratulations to Angela Ponticilli, Cathy Vick and the entire committee and we all appreciate their dedication to our members.

I have established a safety task force co-chaired by Amy Debellis, Karen White and Carmela Holt. They have investigated over 30 different apps as well as various devices and we will be presenting their findings to the Board of Directors this month.

Finally I want to continue to remind all our members of the importance of investing in RPAC. There are numerous legislative changes proposed at both the federal and state levels and Realtors must have a seat at the table.

Please help us as we collect new and gently used items to help provide desperately needed supplies to our local shelter in New Jersey.

Donations will be accepted at RealSource, 5 Franklin Turnpike, Waldwick From March 1st through March 31st.
