Thank you for your interest in ordering a copy of REV: Service Above Self by Richard D. Ellsworth with Mike Crispen, which details the inspiring life of Reverend Ellsworth including his service in World War 2 and his work as the long-time chaplain for the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The paperback book is now available for sale through the OSHP Auxiliary Store for $16.95.

All profits from the sale of this book will be used to support the work and mission of the OSHP Chaplain Program.

In the 40 plus years of our existence, the OSP Retiree's Association has charged $1 per month / $12 per year for membership.  How do we spend your dollar? The PDF below provides an overview of our expenses for 2019 from President Bob Booker and Treasurer Brenda Collins.  The Association sponsors a number of events, (including the Retiree's Cookout and the Cleveland Police Museum's Vintage Car Program) reducing the cost of these events for our members that wish to attend.  Also, Board members work for free, putting in many hours of volunteer time to reduce administrative cost.  Thanks to all who have served on the board over our long history! 
Retirees Colonel Tom Rice and Kathy McKinnis pose in front of SP-683 at the 2019 Retiree's Cookout.
The Annual Luncheon and Business meeting, scheduled for Saturday, November 7th at the Aladdin Shrine Center in Grove City, has been cancelled. This decision, by the Executive Board, was due to COVID-19 concerns and announced during our third quarter business meeting on August 14, 2020. The most compelling reason for the cancellation is the present surge of the virus and its unpredictability, as our luncheon would be held during the typical fall cold and flu season. The health and wellness of our retirees paramount.  We are looking forward to a full schedule of events in 2021, providing dates and information for our functions and meetings when available.
Colonel Rick Fambro addresses our retirees after the cancellation of the Retiree's Cookout and the continued unrest and rioting in Columbus and other areas of our State.
As we continue to look for ways to improve our website by providing additional resources and information to our retirees, we are providing a link to "Your Guide to a Better Retirement".  As an example, this free resource highlights coverage, costs, eligibility and enrollment information, along with answers to some frequently asked questions about medicare.  Please take a look by clicking open the link above and let us know what you think.
