Notes From Your President – June


Sorry this is a bit late, but Jim and I have been busy with his rehab from a right knee replacement. He spent 2 weeks in rehab and now we are busy with in home PT and other assistance. We want to thank folks for all their thoughts and prayers.

Two rallies are now under our wings for 2017.

Our first rally this year was held at Cypress Resort, Myrtle Beach, SC. We had great weather and lots of good friends and wonderful meals. There were even some of the chapter members that were able to stop by just to join us in the gathering for dinner. A special visits was made by Mickey and Paul Serlanio, it was wonderful to see them. Paul was the president when Jim and I joined the chapter in the 90’s. We also had two new members join us. Dave & Jan Fowler plus Jerry & Marie Dickerson. Wonderful having you join the Pelicans. There was also a Hawaiian best dressed contest, at dinner Friday night, and we played LRC after dinner, some went home with a few extra quarters.

The second rally was held at Fayetteville RV Resort Wade, NC. with 17 coaches. We lost one of our members, Jim Champion, a couple of weeks before the rally. Our prayers are with Leslie and her family.

Leslie, Jim, Bill and Carol Petras were the host. Bill and Carol took the reins and continued to run the rally. As would be expected the members of this Chapter stepped up and there was another successful weekend. We were all guest of the campground for meal on Thursday night.  It was a nice pulled pork dinner that they had for everyone in the campground.  Breakfasts were great and Dinner on Friday night cooked by George & Ro Edwards was first class.   A few new folks were able to join us for this rally.  Rusty and Rosemary LaBarre, who have been members for some time were able to attend there first rally and hopefully not there last. In addition, first timers were Tom and Coleen Leighty — Welcome!

Here’s hoping everyone has an enjoyable summer and that we see you folks again in October.
