August was "Raymond James Cares Month." The Saginaw, MI and Grand Blanc, MI branches partnered together to volunteer at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. 21 associates and family members inspected, sorted and boxed 6770 pounds of bread to be distributed to local soup kitchens, homeless shelters and food pantries. The Food Bank provides 21 million pounds of food each year to over 400 agencies that feed 300,000 people in Eastern Michigan who go hungry on a daily basis.

Saturday, August 23rd was the 37th Annual Crim Festival of Races in downtown Flint. David participated and ran the 10 mile race for the sixth time, along with his brother, Tim. RJ has "retired" from the Crim, having run several in the 1980's and having sat on the organizational board for inaugural race in 1977. This year, one of the official photographers happened to catch David action near the start line.
On Wednesday, July 16th, 2014, the Grand Blanc office of Raymond James surprised R.J. with a party celebrating his 45th year with the firm. RJ joined Roney & Co. in 1969, and stayed on when the firm merged with Raymond James & Associates. His 45 years with the firm shows a true commitment to his clients, co-workers, and company. We were happy to celebrate with him and look for even more success in the future.
