Steve & Joanne Wyble (22701)
Region Seven Directors
Greetings from Region Seven! We have returned from International, travels out west and a Grand Circle Caravan. It was an amazing trip. Such an incredible country we have to visit.
Now it is time to settle into our new position. First on the agenda is the 2023 Region Rally. The rally is booked for May 4-7, at Gettysburg Campground and is posted on the NKK website. Our hope is to get to know more people from around the region early in the year and have a chance to listen to what they would like the region to be doing.
2023 is shaping up to be a busy summer. So far there are 10 rallies booked throughout the region plus International. We will be attending International, all of the state rallies and as many of the chapter rallies as we can make it to.
The Lakers celebrated their 25th anniversary in September and we would like to congratulate them. This is a great accomplishment to keep the chapter active for this long. One way they have been able to continue is to get the newer members involved. When Joanne & I were elected as President and Secretary we were in our 2nd year of membership. At their recent election, Dave & Karen Woodward were elected Presidents and are now in their 3rd year with the Lakers. Bill Kruszona was elected as Vice President and Monica Monte as Secretary. They are both in their first year of membership.
For those of you who are interested in continuing the growth of your chapter, do not be afraid to step up. Some say they do not have the experience but how do you get experience without stepping up. Chapter, state, and region officers will be available to help, support and mentor. Past officers and longtime members who have “been there and done that” are also available for support. Give it a try, you might find it is easier than you thought.
