Summer is upon us, hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather. Maybe it is getting a little too warm for some. We have had several fun campouts already, April at Hagerman was the first one this season, we had a good turnout for it. The wind tried to relocate us to Wyoming but they had a nice indoor facility for our activities. Then in May the trip to Hells Canyon was interesting as well, the tour of the dam was a big hit with all who participated. Next was the state rally in June. We were asked to put on a "Senior Games" which proved to be a lot of fun for us and the other participants. The pet parade that Marilyn chaired appeared to be a big hit also, thank you to her for her hard work that she did on it. From Lewiston, we went to Ponderosa State Park in McCall, the pollen in the air there was really bad, and we had to leave from there a day early due to allergies (which became a cold for Monica, which she so graciously shared with me after we got home). The tour of the smokejumper facility was very informative, a few of us went there when we camped up there last time but gladly went again. We left before the boat ride, but heard everyone enjoyed it. Next is Fort Running Bear for our July trip.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bob Brassfield on the loss of Margie, and to Tim and Bonnie Haskell for the loss of their son. It seems we have lost a lot of members, former members and family members so far this year.
For those that missed our June meeting, we voted to have a bring your own picnic dinner to the July meeting, so on July 25th bring your favorite food to enjoy before the meeting. The quilt we are raffling will be on display and tickets for it will be available for purchase at our meetings in July and August, for $1 each or 6 for $5. We will hold the drawing at the fall roundup in Jerome and the winner does not need to be present to win. The quilt is really nice, thank you to Ron's cousin who put it together.
Well that's about it for now, see you at Fort Running Bear or the July meeting.
We attended a dinner theater at the Ashley Inn. This is the cast with the audience in the background. The prime rib dinner was very good.
