It is not just the holiday season approaching, but that time of year again whereby we schedule our next semi-annual BCPD Luncheon in Orlando, Florida.  It will be on 26 February 2015, 12 noon at BJ’s Brewmaster, located at 8761 Vineland Avenue, Orlando, FL, 32821, 407-827-9105.

 It’s difficult to imagine it has been 4-years since Tim Markland had the concept of arranging a luncheon for retired officers now residing or visiting Florida. The initial luncheon entailed just 6 of us from BCPD and 1 active Florida FWC Police Officer.  This past September there were more than 30 retirees that attended.  We were further fortunate to have Retired Homicide Detective Arthur Vidler.  Mr. Art retired in 1969 and is now 94 years young.

I have included a few pictures from the past for those folks that were unaware of our luncheon.  Each of you has been blind copied so your email addresses remain protected.

Any retired, or active BPD officer interested in attending the semi-annual luncheon in Orlando, Florida, please contact Tim Markland or Tony Petralia.  We are both on Facebook,  We had a very nice turn-out in the spring.  It was interesting swapping war-stories; some of them were actually true. Try to attend, none of us are getting younger and we are already one step closer to death by residing in God's Waiting Room.

Time: 1130 hours
