May 2012

Majestic May festivities with great dancing/activities, super nice campground and a delectable abundance of food!
Our outing took place at Glen Haven RV Resort in Zephyrhills, FL the weekend of May 17 - 19, 2012. Our Chapter holds a very distinctive honor: we were the first rally to be held at Glen Haven.
The office manager, Inga, was ecstatic and quite happy to have us there. She is an extremely pleasant, friendly, fun-loving person. She came to our dances both nights to watch, brought several friends, and we truly enjoyed her company and good humor!

The hosts/hostesses for the weekend were Al and Mary Teschner along with Fredda Barlow and her brother Vince. They planned and presented us with a weekend of relaxation and fun. Mary said they were in awe of the kitchen and its facilities. They may not have had a stove but everything else was available and they were encouraged to use whatever they needed. Not every campground has 6 crock pots at our disposal!
Thursday evening there were 16 of us enjoying hors d'oeuvres along with beef tenderloin steak, twice baked potatoes, salad, cornbread casserole and dessert at Fredda's ranch. We enjoyed visiting with her horses. Thanks to Sandy for helping Fredda in the kitchen. Great evening of fellowship.
Friday morning several of the women left for a day of shopping, antiquing and lunching in the Zephyrhills area while several of the men spent the time golfing. By dinnertime we had 23 folks dining at Piccola Italia in the town; wonderful food at reasonable prices.
Our Friday night dance had 3 squares on the floor at times, high paced and plenty of good fun and laughter. At one point, our caller Ron Reardon stated and I quote: "You dance like professionals!" 
Saturday started out with breakfast served by our hosts/hostesses: egg and sausage casseroles along with fruit and pastries. Before we could turn around, it was time to meet for Sharon Cormier's lunch of clam chowder and clam cakes. Delicious!
Our caller, Ron Reardon, mentioned the previous month he would set up for karaoke singing Saturday afternoon. As soon as we arrived and started, Ron said he had purchased a special song for someone because they had mentioned how much they liked it: the song was 'Red Solo Cup' and he asked Tom Hartwig to come up and perform. Tom did quite a rousing rendition - I think we were all in awe! We discovered we have a chapter of excellent singers. Everyone who sang did an awesome job! What some thought would be about a half hour of singing ended up to be 2 hours of singing, laughter and good cheer!
Dinner was 'bring your own steak' while the hosts/hostesses prepared baked potatoes, salad, fruit and desserts. Totally enjoyed by all.
And finally the Saturday dance was another night of fun dancing. However, perhaps we were becoming worn out from all the eating we did, but at one point after a tip, Ron stated...and I quote: "You guys dance like you need a workshop!" We all agreed and had a good laugh!
