ParadeAuctionmembersThe ClarksThe Dixon’s

The rally was held on October 26-28th at the Lee County fairgrounds. It was a nice autumn weekend with a little rain on Friday night. There were 18 trailers, a motorhome, and a B-van in attendance. Ten more members drove in for the Saturday activities.

Friday night we had chili. After the meal, a number of brave folks wore their Halloween costumes for the parade contest. They were all winners. Everyone got taffy apples.

Saturday morning, the business meeting was held.   The White Elephant auction was held in the early afternoon and raised $604.50. Dwight and his helpers made a lively session of it. While the auction was in progress, the ladies were cooking four turkeys around the hall in roasters. After the auction, Bob Whitesell led a roundtable discussion about trailer safety and maintenance. Everybody enjoyed the turkey feast. There were lots of member provided side dishes. That evening, Dave Toeppen showed a movie he shot 50 years ago, while on an excursion through the Grand Caynon on a raft.
