Blueberry Hill RV Resort
It was with great sadness when we heard Janet Shankle passed away - she was
our Chapter cuer for many years; she was a charter member of 082. She will
be greatly missed by our members who came to love her dearly over the years.
Our December campout (27/28) took place at Blueberry Hill Resort in
Bushnell. FL. Hosts/hostesses were Phil/Deanna Sortore, George/Sandy Oakes
and Eddie/Joyce Julian. Tom and I did not camp for the weekend however we went
Saturday for the meetings and potluck dinner. We surprised everyone
when we arrived with Bobbie Collins, past member of 082. We were all
delighted to have her spend the day with the dancers.
I was able to glean some information to report: I heard many of the couples
arrived early on Thursday, the 26th. Several enjoyed dining at a Mexican
restaurant while others visited and enjoyed a German restaurant. It was
great to see the Eversoles camping this month; they were visited by their
son Clifton and his friend Jacqueline (more on them later). Lloyd Floyd was
present after a lengthy illness. John and Dolly Ide rejoined as Associate
Members for 2014. Caught up with our President Al and wife Mary for a short
time before they departed due to Mary not feeling well. Caller/cuer Mike
Gormley from Sebring and his wife Colleen, camped for the weekend. He
offered to and did help us by cueing for the round dancers Friday and
Al and the rest of the board had a 10 o'clock meeting after breakfast
Saturday morning. At 2 our caller, Ron Reardon, held a workshop which gave
many of us attending some eye-openers. During the workshop Ron had Clifton
and Jacqueline join in a tip where he led them through several calls and
soon they were square dancers! Always fun with Ron!
5 o'clock found us ready for a delicious potluck dinner; ham supplied by the
club along with sides and desserts brought by everyone. Following dinner, we
had our general meeting, led by our Vice President John Ruppel. Tom, Bobbie
and I departed for home immediately after. Check out the photos for December
