Join us for our annual pistol shoot September 11th. It will be held at the FBI range west of Buffalo, MN. Whether you are an accomplished shooter or barely know what end of the gun to point at the target, it’s a good time! If you would like to participate and did not receive a flyer email the chapter secretary/treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Chief Karl Jegeris, NA Session 253, recently retired after more than 24 years with the Rapid City, SD Police Dept. During his time with the department Karl served as an officer, school liaison officer, juvenile detective, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, assistant chief, and chief. Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender said, in part, of Chief Jegeris, “For a quarter century Karl Jegeris has served the people of Rapid City well, with a sense of calm, compassion, and community.” Sounds like reflections on a career well-spent. Congratulations, Karl, on your retirement and your next venture as the director of collaborative excellence for the Children’s Home Society of South Dakota!

During the following 19 years Jim spent time in command of all six divisions of the department, leaving an indelible mark on each. Jim and his wife, Kim, have three sons of which he was very proud. Jim was an active member of the Northwest Chapter, participating in a variety of get-togethers and had become the chapter’s unofficial grill-master, serving up brats, burgers, or steaks during our annual pistol shoot & barbeque.
