Tennessee Volunteer Kruisers – President
At the writing of this article, people are quickly finalizing their plans to attend the 36th Annual International NKK Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming. As such, I would like to take this opportunity to brag on the latest accomplishments of our great Volunteer Kruiser members.
Our Tennessee State Directors, Phil & Charlene Budd did an outstanding job of hosting their Tennessee State Rally at Two Rivers RV Park in Sevierville, Tennessee. This rally was enjoyed by all that attended and it could not have happened without our wonderful hosts and volunteers. This was definitely a five pound rally. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Currently we are halfway through the year, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our newest chapter members. In January, Don & Patti Liedtke from Spring Hill, Tennessee; David & Julie Baker from Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Larry Hicks from Sweetwater, Tennessee; Allan & Holly Smith from Mountain City, Tennessee; and Steven and Robyn Roscoe from Crossville, Tennessee joined our chapter. In April, Bob & Helen Vaughn from Clarksville, Tennessee, Evan & Debbie Hughes from Petaluma, California chose to join us. Welcome to all of those that are helping to build our Volunteer Kruiser chapter.
Additionally, since our chapter is 20+ years old, we took a long hard look at bringing our chapter logo, our newsletters, and our letterhead stationery into the 21st century. A new chapter logo was created by our chapter Vice-President, Bill Mannion, approved by the Newmar Kountry Klub and Newmar Corp and was incorporated into our new look and feel. Thank you Bill Mannion!
Finally, we occasionally get questions about “Where can I purchase a chapter t-shirt?” Well, now we have an answer to that question. Once again, our chapter officers took up the task of working with one of our favorite external vendors (ZONEZ) to create a chapter online store. This link https://www.storessimple.com/zonez/16284 will allow our members to shop for t-shirts, polo shirts, hats, blankets, bags, koozies, etc. All merchandise carries our chapter logo, and it is easy for our members to order their chapter merchandise shipped directly to them.
OK, time to close. Enjoy your travels, your Newmar RV and I look forward to renewing friendships and making new acquaintances at our next stop. More to come next time. We can be reached at SherynWard@gmail.com.
