Member Updates.


Dear Friends,

As many  of you may already know, I have completely moved out of Rossmoor and am living with my daughter in Rancho Cordova near Sacramento.  Prior to doing so I sold the tow  car and later the Dolphin motor home.  I have enjoyed my time as a member of the Roadrunners and will continue my membership, joining 

you whenever I can.  I canceled my local 925 phone number, however, my cell 

number remains the same,  843-997-0705.  My new address is : 4004 Aura Way, Rancho Cordova, Ca 95742.  I look forward to seeing many of you in the future. 

Best regards,

Jack Melvin

Web Site Photo Gallery, Per Michael Casey:


If you have not recently checked out the Roadrunners web site, give it a look.  Many 

improvements have been made, one of which is the Photo Gallery section.  This has been 

expanded with many new pictures added.  There is lots of room for more pictures.  If you have some digital pictures that you think would look good in the gallery, send them to

They will be reviewed, and we would like to add many more pictures to the gallery.  New photos do not have to fit in the categories that are currently open since we can add new categories as the occasion arises.  Additional pictures for the existing categories are also welcome.  The photo Gallery is meant to inspire us all to “hit the road”, see the sites and take some pictures for all of us to enjoy.
