RMCFA has been mostly dormant since our last meeting, June 2013.

Tasks have been continuously performed to maintain RMCFA as a nonprofit entity in good standing with state and federal government.

Sometime we hope to get restarted, or at least hold another meeting.

We did not manage to hold a Membership and Board Meeting in the first few months of 2014 (with purpose to see if RMCFA can be revitalized by the volunteer help of more people).  We still hope to hold a meeting of some sort, now looking to Spring of 2016.

For Events, No Perfumes or Colognes are allowed!
