New webmaster…Susan Kercher

Traveling Supremes,

John Laninga, has decided to take a break from the job of Traveling Supreme webmaster! On behalf of the Traveling Supremes, and as former President of the club, I would like to thank John for getting our web set up and posting all of our rallies, meetings and information pertaining to the Traveling Supremes! I also want to thank John for the great instructions he provided me and I’m hoping to not bother him too much!

I have volunteered to try and carry on in John’s very large footsteps! Please be patient with me and I welcome comments and suggestions! This is my first “test post” so wish me luck!

I decided I needed to try and insert a picture, so here I am in Colorado in the Rio Grande Forest, near the historic 1880 Train Depot with some of the Traveling Supremes for lunch at the Depot September 4, 2020!

Interim officers

As you may know, our President Susan Kercher has resigned formally from her position effective October 1, 2021. Our Wagonmaster and Second Vice-President, Jim Hoover, has agreed to move into the Presidency to finish out the term. This has left a vacancy for the office of Wagonmaster. In addition, our Treasurer, Bud Odom, has requested relief from his position, which he has held for several years.

Based on these needs, the Executive Board has met and appointed a committee to appoint interim officers to fill these two positions. We are pleased to announce that James Smith has agreed to accept the position of Wagonmaster and Billy Braley has agreed to accept the position of Treasurer. Both will fill these interim offices until such time as the next formal club election of officers in the fall of 2022, which represents the end of this slate of officers’ term. Bill Bobo will continue as Second Vice-President and Myrna Braley will continue as Secretary.

Thank you to everyone for your help during this transition.

Photo challenge!

Here’s a neat idea, brought to us from our President Susan Kercher. Let’s have a photo challenge! Not sure what that is? Well, hang on…..

Your challenge will be to post one picture of any Traveling Supreme member of members, from any time or event. It would be nice if you also posted when and where the picture was taken. Let’s get some memories started!

You may be aware that we have a Facebook community page. You can go there from the search bar on top of the Facebook page. Just type in Traveling Supremes. You have to be a member to post here, if you’re not a member, it’s easy… just press the “Join” button and wait for a note letting you know you are a member. No credit cards, no forms, that’s it. You can now fully participate in any discussion, or start one of your own.

Once you are in the Community, you have many options. A few lines down you’ll see a section in a blue box labeled “Contact us”, and right below that you see the option “Publish”. Touch that and you will see this screen:

Now you can type whatever message you want. Below that is a green Photo button, press that and you will be able to select any photo in your camera roll. One note… if you’ve never done this before you will be asked if Facebook can access your pictures. Answer Yes.

You also have the option of adding a Check-in (where this picture was taken), how you feel about it, even open your camera and take one. Once complete, touch “Continue” in the top right and your glorious picture and comments will show up on Facebook for the world to see.

Try it! Any specific questions ask here, or on Facebook, and we’ll try to answer them.

Enjoy!

Yard signs

A&E signs, who manufactured our yard signs, has decided to discontinue making the individual yard signs. Too many signs were being returned as the post office bent or damaged them in shipment, and it was not cost-effective to replace the sign.

So if you have a sign fly it proudly, treat it as unique, because you can’t get a replacement.

Getting settled

Bylaws update

Our bylaws were updated in September 27, 2017. Although our Bylaws were properly edited, the web site was not updated with the changes. This has now been remedied. Here are the changes:

Article 2, Section 2 now reads:

Section 2. The officers shall be elected at the annual business meeting for terms of two years, but shall hold office until the successors are duly elected and installed.  No elected officer may serve for more than two consecutive terms in any one office, except the secretary and treasurer.

Also added Article 2, Section 5:

Section 5: In the event that an officer resigns or is unable to serve, the Executive Committee shall appoint a replacement to serve until the next officer election.
