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.

Cancellation, Wagon Master notes

Canceled (proposed) rally

James & Gail Smith have worked very hard trying to secure a RV Park so we could attend the Earth Art Festival & the Rock Stacking Championship. However, they have been unable to find accommodations so we will have to cancel this event. It has been removed from Future Rallies.  Maybe next year!

Wagon master notes

This is an excellent time to light the fire, snuggle up to the fireplace, and think about future rallies.  Our VP and Wagon Master, DeAnne Phillips,  has also given this much thought and wrote an excellent reminder for all of us.  You can find it under the Officers Page, or click here  and scroll down to DeAnne Phillips.

 

Business Meeting report

Just added the official 2017 Business Meeting Report.  Since we already had a menu option entitled “2017 Business Meeting”, this was changed to “Onalaska Rally”.  Then the Business Meeting Report was added as a menu option under the “Member page” menu option.  Confused?

The 2017 Onalaska Rally is under “Past Rallies”, or click here

The 2017 Business Meeting Report is under “Member page”, or click here

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.

Gail Smith

President’s report

From Gail Smith.  This report is also shown under the “Officer’s Page”menu option.

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!
