As I write this article, it is 86 degrees in Fort Myers and 20 degrees at home in Pennsylvania. That’s why we choose to spend our winters in Florida.
We are happy to say both Pennsylvania chapters are active even during the winter getting all the final details together for their June rallies. Sue & I are excited about both rallies and the agendas at each. We know they are going to be filled with fun and plenty of activities, and did I mention food.
The details for our State Rally at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania are falling into place. From a covered horse drawn wagon tour of the lower portion of the Grand Canyon including a cowboy bar-b-que lunch, to a tour of the upper portion of the canyon, to going to the Elliot Ness Museum and the Lumberman’s Museum to spending a day in downtown quaint Wellsboro with music and entertainment and shopping, to sitting around the campfires. We look forward to having a great time with all.
It is with a heavy heart that we pass on the following news. Bobby King, husband of Patty King, went home to be with the Lord on February 7, 2021. Bobby & Patty were members of the International Kountry Klub for nine years and attended four International Rallies and untold Pennsylvania rallies as they were not only members of the Alleghany Kountry Kampers, but Patty was the Treasurer and was an important part in holding them together until the end of the chapter in the fall of 2020. Bobby LOVED motor homing and traveling out west and loved his Newmar Kountry Klub family. He also loved his Patty dearly. He will be miss by all. Patty, we love you!
Our Penn’s Friends Klub will be doing the “Caring & Sharing” program at the International Rally again this year and the West Penn Travelers has been asked to host a table collecting small stuffed animals in gallon Ziplock bags to be given to the local law enforcement and EMT people for children in crisis. We are looking forward to both of these endeavors. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Rally in West Virginia.
Remember wear your mask – Keep your distance – stay safe – and may God Bless you richly!
