PRESIDENT’S REPORT
Gail Smith

Recently the news has been full of stories and allegations of prejudice, bigotry, racism, violence and other not-so-exemplary traits. It sometimes seems that the whole world is veering off course! It reminded me of a quote I read by Mark Twain, which he penned way back in 1869. He said:

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely. Broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one’s own little corner of the earth!”

Maybe this is the reason that we meet so many nice people while traveling around in our RVs and camping with our Traveling Supremes friends. Join us on one of our upcoming rallies or gatherings or tag-alongs, and we will do our best to prove old Mark Twain’s theory to you!

We just completed two great Gatherings. In Canton we shopped until we almost dropped and in Bullard we ate until we almost popped. Special shout-outs to Polk and Linda Brian for hosting the Canton Gathering and to Billy and Myrna Braly for hosting the Bullard Gathering. Great jobs!

Summer is just around the corner and it brings more activities for Traveling Supremes members. We have three Tag-Alongs–one in June at Buena Vista, CO and two in July (Ruidosa, NM and Sault Ste Marie, MI). August features a Gathering in Chama, NM.

In September we will have our annual Business Meeting Rally. This year it will be held on Lake Livingston in Onalaska, TX (between Huntsville and Livingston, TX). And our traditional New Year’s Gathering is scheduled for Coleto Creek KOA between Victoria and Goliad, TX.
We already have some 2018 scheduled activities. Reservations are open for a January 2018 Tag-Along in Quartzite, AZ. Block your calendar for other scheduled activities in March, 2018 (Llano, TX for the Earth Art Festival and Rock Stacking Championship) and two back-to-back Gatherings in July, 2018 (Berlin, Ohio for Ohio Amish Country and Elkhart, Indiana for more Amish and the area considered as the RV Capital of America). Watch for reservation information to come later in the year for these and other 2018 activities.

Check out the Future Rally section for specific information regarding all of the above Tag-Alongs, Gatherings and Rallies. We have exciting places to go and sights to see as together, we Travel Supremely! See you there!!
