Ohio Lake Erie Drifters – Secretary/Treasurer
Since our last article in the Legacy, we had a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I was unable to attend this one, but I have heard it was a great time. There were seven rigs in attendance, and they even had a speaker who was very knowledgeable about the Civil War in that area. He was also very interesting to listen to. The group traveled around the battlegrounds and found much to see. As always, I am sure there was plenty of food.
Our next rally was in August in Dundee, Ohio (Amish country). There were nine units total. We had one guest unit, Jay & Beth Palmer, friends of Jim Senft. One brand new member, Jane Cozad, who just bought her rig and is trying to learn everything there is to know about her new Canyon Star. Joe & Gail Swartz visited with us also.
We were left to buddy up and visit the places we already knew and to find a few new ones. We had dinner on Friday night at a restaurant in Massillon and if you are ever there, don’t miss it. Everyone raved over their food. Jerry & I said we think it is the best steak we have ever had in a restaurant.
Saturday, we prepared hamburgers on the grill provided in the shelter at the Resort and we all provided a dish to share. As normal we had a great dinner. Newmar people are wonderful cooks with great recipes. We held a short meeting after dinner, and we have an interim President now. Todd Knierman and his wife, Sheryl, joined this year and he volunteered to fill in until we have elections in October. Thank you, Todd.
Sunday morning, we had breakfast casserole, and coffee cake provided by Pam Mehan and donuts by the hosts. As we were eating, we were joined by our newest member, Buckeye. He is the cutest Golden and is 13 weeks old. As Mike & Gina Karcic were leaving Kiem Lumber in Charm on Friday they spotted a sign that said Goldens for sale. They went to check it out and you know the rest.
Our last rally of the year is at Gallia County 4H Park in Rio Grande. We will be attending the Bob Evans Festival. This is one rally we always look forward to. See you there.
