Our September outing took place at
Theme World RV in Davenport, FL during the weekend in which autumn began:
September 23rd to 25th. We had beautiful weather with just a short period of
rain, but it was still very hot, like summer!
10 member rigs gathered together along with several
guests. An NSDCA meeting was held on Saturday afternoon, which brought in
several other square dancers visiting for the day.
Sandy and George were host and hostess; they made the
weekend welcoming and very enjoyable for all of us.
Friday morning several of the fellows went golfing - at
our Saturday potluck meeting, George presented Tom H. with the Golf Buddy -
an award that circulates among the golfers, given out for some extraordinary
golf feat! After the next monthly golf game, it will be Tom's job to decide
who gets Buddy!
By Friday evening, all the square dancers were waiting
for our caller, Ron Reardon, to strike up his music so the dancing could
begin...counting the month of September, since we danced late in the
month...most of us had not danced for about 4 months and we were ready to
get out on the floor!
We were very fortunate to have Carl Rod and his lovely
wife, Betsy, come by on Saturday night; he did rounds for us and also called
a tip with Ron.
A very moving letter sent from Dot & Bill was read to the
membership at our potluck meeting; Dot thanking everyone for cards, prayers,
etc. The letter has been given to our club historian, Eivor, to file and
have available for members absent from our September outing to be able to
read at a later date.
