Richard & Donna Ritchie (16254)
Illinois State Directors
I saw some trees starting to turn colors this week which means it’s almost time to head to our winter destinations. We’ve only been home about six weeks this summer, which was not enough, so better luck next year.
We’ve got a couple of family trips planned for the next couple of weeks, and we’re really looking forward to that. It seems like grandkids grow an inch or two every time we visit. First, we’re going to Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska to visit kids and grandchildren. Next, we head west to Colorado to the “World’s Fair” in Eads, Colorado for an all-school reunion and sibling reunion.
After this we will head to the Region Four Rally in Minnesota. This will be a new location for us, so we’re looking forward to seeing our Newmar family. October 1 we’re having a luncheon to get together with our Northern Chapter, NIKK, before we all go our separate ways for the winter.
We want to thank all the volunteers that helped with the Arts and Crafts Contest at International. We had over 45 entries in the contest, and the talents we have in the Klub are amazing. We encourage you to bring your talents to Sedalia.
While we were at International, we won a Dometic dual control cooler that fits in the bay. It was heavy to install, but Richard managed to put it all together. Just one of the benefits for going to International Rally. Mark your calendars for the 37th International Rally – Sedalia, Missouri. Dates are September 30 – October 7, 2023. We were there several years ago and looking forward to going again.
Don’t forget to check the Newmar Kountry Klub Calendar to see if there is a monthly luncheon where you reside. We’re in the process of making plans for our State Rally next year, so the Klub Calendar and the Legacy will keep you up to date.
