Dave & Barbara Burtrum (22047)
Missouri State Directors
Happy Fall ya’all! Oh wait, by the time you get to read this it’s “Seasons Greetings”! We hope everyone had a great finish to the summer and fall season. As mentioned in our last article, The Mid-MO Wanderlusts had their fall rally in Carthage, Missouri at the Coachlight RV Park. What a great place! The park is well kept, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Activities included some great meals including an Italian meal and also a fried chicken meal that was excellent. They also traveled across the border (state that is) to Mineral, Kansas to see the gigantic coal shovel “Big Brutus,” the largest still- standing electric shovel in the world. We received a tour of Big Brutus and learned about coal mining in eastern Kansas.
The Mid-MO Wanderlusts also held a business meeting and elected new officers (no voter fraud detected). Bob Briggs will be serving as president, John Yarick will be vice-president, and Mary Sue Briggs will be secretary. Dale Daniel will continue as treasurer. Thank you so much Bob, John, and Mary Sue for stepping up and filing these positions.
Barb & I were able to get out and travel some after her successful shoulder surgery and physical therapy. We attended a rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and toured the area while there. We also got to visit with friends in the area. On the way back to Missouri we stopped in Nashville (Grand Ole Opry) and also Paducah, Kentucky (quilters will know why).
We are home now until just after Christmas when we head west for warmer, sunnier weather. Hopefully we’ll see some of you in our travels this winter. If you’re in Arizona, look us up!
