Tandy Krugler’s update

Tandy Krugler’s mother (and Paul’s mother-in-law), Alta Kirk, lost her battle with health problems/dementia on Tuesday, November 21. After cremation, memorial services will be held at a later date. I am sure they would appreciate any cards or prayers from fellow Traveling Supremes during this sad time.

Paul and Tandy have been members for about 3-4 years and are from Austin. Many active members know them and have been aware of her mom’s illness. They come to Chama every year and most Rallies.

First report, Business Meeting

From Susan Kercher’s Facebook post, with permission

Ted and I left Alabama last Friday afternoon. We spent that night in Mississippi and then two nights in West Monroe, Louisiana at our friends’ (Polk and Linda) home on their RV pad! On Monday we arrived in Onalaska, Texas with 12 other Traveling Supreme rigs! On Monday we had a group dinner, Tuesday we had lunch at Manny’s Shrimp Boat and then went to a very cool rock shop! Wednesday we had a member give a really interesting presentation on metal detecting, along with a boat ride on a pontoon boat for all interested members and another great meal fixed by our hosts! Today we headed to a Texas prison museum. It was very interesting and there are pictures of the great things the prisoners are capable of making.

Next stop was lunch at the Farmhouse Cafe! They have yummy dinner rolls and cornbread. Ted and I had salads and shared banana pudding pie! From there we went to the Sam Houston Museum. Our tour guide had tons of amusing anecdotes. A fun day, followed by a light supper at the clubhouse! Tomorrow we all head out for other adventures! Thank you Deanne and David Phillips, our great wagon masters!

Mary Lang

Dear friends–

We are sad to report the passing of our sweet friend and fellow traveler, Mary Lang. She passed away on Tuesday after a brief fight with lung cancer, as well as other complications. The funeral visitation will be at St. Bernard Memorial Funeral Home in Chalmette, LA, on Friday, September 8, from noon to 2, with services at 2 and followed by private burial service.

I have sent a memorial bouquet of flowers on behalf of the entire Traveling Supremes Club.

Some web changes

No more newsletter, search the blog!

The web has changed many things, including the way that  club news gets reported.  In the past, someone had to write a report on a rally, take the pictures, write it all up, and publish a news letter.  This was one of the most difficult things about doing a news letter… getting the rally reports.

But this is changing, with the advent of blogs.  Instead of a newsletter, information is updated ad hoc, or, whenever someone decides to write something.  You’ve seen some of this from the most excellent updates provide by Lou Butaud.  So instead of a newsletter, you get current updates anytime.  From now on, there will be no more newsletters mailed to you.

But, you may ask, how do I get all the info on any one event?  Well, that is why we added a Search box on the left menu bar.  Simply type in any word or words you want to search on, and all information with that word now is presented to you.   Yes, we will keep the historical rally reports, they are still all on the web site.  But for any recent event, use the search box.

Also, make sure you are set up to receive automatic updates when a post is issued.  That is how you stay up to date better than ever before.  So makes sure you enter your email address in the “Follow this blog” space.
