New Mexico Chile Peppers – Presidents
The RVing season has started and many of us have been using our coaches, nice! The New Mexico Chile Peppers have also been busy RVing. In May we held our first chapter rally in several years. The sold-out rally was held in Ruidoso, high in the mountains of New Mexico. The attendees were kept busy going to a Kentucky Derby party, seeing CATS the Musical, visiting historical locations and museums, and even visiting a petting zoo! Of course, what would a Kentucky Derby Party be without a hat contest, and we had one! As the party was held at a horse racetrack, there were over 500 guests in attendance, and many entered the contest. Can you believe that one of our Chile Peppers won first place? Yes, our Secretary, Wendy Wilkerson, won first place and her share of the $500 pot!
Cindy & I have also been quite busy. One of the rallies we recently attended was the Cajun Festival in New Iberia, Louisiana. This is one annual rally that should not be missed for those who enjoy Cajun food and music. While there, we met one of the original honorary members of the Chile Peppers, Marty Lown, who owns a Newmar dealership, Coachlight RV in Carthage, Missouri. It was fun talking to Mr. Lown and learning about some of the history of our Klub.
The Chile Pepper officers are now working on our next rally which will be held in a beautiful mountain location, again in New Mexico. More details will be coming. Also in the planning is our New Mexico State Rally which will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico this September. Use the NKK calendar to sign up for this rally.
On behalf of the Chile Pepper officers, safe travels and we hope to see you at a future rally! We can be reached at email firstname.lastname@example.org or cell 214-437-3734.
