Galena Rally

The weather this weekend was excellent. We had six member trailers attend. One prospective couple also attended. Former members, the Wiemers, live in Galena and stopped by a number of times and invited us to Friday night dinner at the Elks.  Bob Whitesell and his wife stopped by Saturday afternoon. They were visiting Bob’s mother, who lives in Galena.  Jamisons made sausage and egg soft tacos with all the fixings for Saturday breakfast. The local restaurant was so close that we walked to it for dinner.  Saturday, most of us toured the town seeing all the shops and visiting the museums.  The campground was a typical “side of the busy road” layout with a swimming pool out front. There were lots of locals with kids and motorcycle tenters. We all enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Carol and I even got in the pool.

Brian McFarland will be installed as president at our October Rally. Jim Matkovich, immediate past president, will host the Christmas Luncheon. As of January,2012, he will be be organizing the 2013 WBCCI Alaska Fly Drive caravan.

Carol Dixon, as Chairman of the Nominating committee, is still looking for two members to step forward to become 1st and 2nd vice presidents for next year.
