As president of the company, he focuses on large industrial distribution facilities in the Dallas area and across the U.S. Jim and Pat have lived in Robson Ranch for three years.

Paul and Pamella Vicalvi have lived in Robson Ranch for a year. Paul grew up in Albany, New York. He spent 30 years traveling the world on active duty as an Army Chaplain. Fourteen of those years were spent as a paratrooper (nickname – the Leaping Deacon!). Following his retirement from the Army, he taught high school in Branson, MO. Paul and Pamella have five children, 12 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

Joyce Ambre and her husband Bill have lived in Robson Ranch for over 14 years. Joyce has also served as secretary and membership chair for the RR Women’s Club, secretary of the HOA Living Well Committee and is currently chairperson for the HOA Living Well Committee. Before moving to Robson, Joyce and Bill travelled with the Air Force throughout the United States and overseas. Bill is a retired Colonel. Joyce worked as a teacher and principal before retiring in 2000. The Ambres have three children and 12 grandchildren.

Amy Enloe, treasurer, is a native Missourian. After graduating from Central Missouri State University, she became a flight attendant for Continental Airlines. Once married with children, she opted to be a stay-at-home mom. She served as treasurer for a pre-kindergarten program in Missouri and treasurer of both the middle and high school bands in Flower Mound. She later became a bookkeeper for a small company in Dallas. Amy enjoys golf, sewing and bowling along with her husband Pat, who is also from Missouri.

The Republican Club is making plans for a lively group of meetings in the coming year. The club meets the first Wednesday of each month beginning in September.
