PPC Trustee Chairman, Building, Range & Safety Committees 



Frank Klemser, our former club Trustee and Membership Chairman passed away on April 4th. Frank will most be remembered for his role as Membership Chairman. He created and maintained our club’s electronic membership database. He processed all member renewals and maintained the club’s membership records until his health forced him the take a less active role in the club. He would always be there on Thursday evenings to sign up new members, review range rules and make sure our club safety rules were strictly adhered to. Frank was one of the club’s RSO’s and NRA certified instructors. He was a fixture at all club training events promoting the PPC and was a staunch advocate of the Second Amendment.

Frank is one of the people who I came to depend on for support and guidance. I am deeply saddened by his passing. Frank was laid to rest at the Warren Hills Funeral Home in Washington, NJ but due to the Coronavirus epidemic a “Celebration of Life” arrangement will be made and announced at a later time. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Warren Hills Memorial Home. To send an on-line condolence please visit www.warrenhillsmemorialhome.com

Please read the legislative update section of the newsletter and familiarize yourself with the law that affects everyone who will use the PPC range. New Jersey as well as Pennsylvania residents are required to comply with the new law that limits the magazine capacity to a maximum of 10 rounds. The law applies to shooting at any range or merely possessing a large capacity magazine (anything that exceeds 10 rounds) while in the State of New Jersey. If you did not get the e-mail blast from PPC, please e-mail membershipchairman@phillipsburgpistolclub.org to verify your e-mail address so we can update our records.
