Finally! The weather for our February campout was finally
warm and very pleasant! We gathered 15 rigs strong at the Floridian RV
Resort in St. Cloud, FL during the third weekend of the month -
February 18 - 20, 2011. One of the couples camping with us came from PA,
they belong to Chapter 106 - we enjoyed socializing and dancing with Maria
I know a few of us turned our heaters on in our RVs in
the early mornings to take away the chill, but each day was so
very comfortable; we were able to have Saturday breakfast and our Board
meeting outdoors. Saturday's pancake breakfast was served up by host Tom
Hartwig with the help of Phil Sortore. Tom and I thank all the 082 members
who helped us in so many ways over the weekend.
We missed our cuers, Jan and Pete Shankle; Jan was not
feeling well - we hope to see her at our next outing.
We had too many members under the weather this month and
we missed them all. We were glad to see Dick Fournier stop by in his golf
cart Saturday morning and then he and Nancy spent time with us at the
Saturday dance. They came by with Joyce and Lee Whitten because our
Activities Directors, Sandy and George, wanted to honor the Fourniers with a
presentation which Dick and Nancy missed in January - honoring them for
their many years of service to 082.
You can check out the complete
presentation to our entire Board, along with many photos, at our website at
Sandy and George also reported our 'adopted' Marine
Philip is back home again from his latest tour of duty in Afghanistan!
Did you ever give a party and no one came? Well, I heard
that this was the second year in a row a birthday party, along with cake,
was to take place over the weekend in my honor....and I didn't show up for
either one! First year I did get a smidgen of the cake, this year,
nothing! I really do believe it is true what I was told....I think!
(Or someone was pulling my leg!)
