We are extremely excited to announce the organization inducted two new Lifetime members and two new Red Jacket recipients this past Saturday at our annual alumni banquet. A massive congratulations to the newest lifetime members Matt Schwartz and Nancy Renfro. Simply put, this is the highest honor one can achieve within our club, and only a handful of people are part of this prestigious group in our 58 years. This is only possible through many years of selfless dedication and unwavering, unmatched support of the KJRFC. They always prioritize the needs of the club, often times coming at a sacrifice, but know it is helping the club improve in some way. Additionally, we’d like to congratulate Paddy Delargy and Trevor Lister on receiving their red jackets. The Red Jackets were previously only attainable through various accolades and milestones accomplished during your playing career, but in recent years was expanded to include individuals who go far beyond the dedication of the average club member. These members are considered outstanding delegates of the club, and uphold the core values the organization is built upon. Along with these new members, we’d like to recognize our golf cowboys for winning our annual outstanding alumni award for their fundraising efforts. These men have been going on a destination golf trip every year for what will be the 25th time next year. Their ages range from 20s all the way to 70s. A majority of our donations come from these men, and our club quite literally would not be the same without them, both financially or the foundation they laid during their time here which our club stands on today. Between them, $500k was raised for various improvements, including the renovations currently being made to Westwick. We cannot thank these men enough for what they do for this club. If you are involved with the KJRFC at all, it comes at no surprise that all of these people above are being recognized. Congratulations to all!
