John & Diane Svatek (21793)
New York Hudson Aires Chapter – President and Secretary (outgoing)
Welcome new chapter members, Tommy & Audrey Ruttura from Long Island. As this is written we look forward to joining them in Sedalia, Missouri at the International Rally, and at future Hudson Aires and New York State rallies.
The Hudson Aires Chapter Rally was held at Belden Hill Campground, Harpursville, New York, northeast of Binghamton. Twenty-nine attendees in fourteen coaches enjoyed the Spiedie Fest and hot air balloons, Binghamton Carousels, golf, Animal Land, the auto museum in Norwich, New York and other attractions. Yummy food included a breakfast sponsored by SkyMed at which nine couples/singles signed up for Sky Med protection. An ice cream social on Saturday night, in honor and memory of John Alquire, charter member of the Hudson Aires back in 2017, closed out the rally.
As this is written, we are looking forward to joining the Pennsylvania state caravan heading to Sedalia, Missouri for the International Rally. Thanks to Wayne & Sue Burke for organizing this adventure. Our first ever International Rally was in Sedalia in 2017, at which the Hudson Aires received the charter as the newest NKK chapter. Returning to Sedalia, six years and many NKK adventures later, will be fun.
