July 2010 Travel N Fun Column

JULY MEETING NOTICE CHANGE:  The July meeting will be Monday, the 19th at the Shelter due to travel of most of the officer corps.  This meeting will be a potluck with greet at 5pm   (or earlier if you wish), eat at 6, and meet at 7.  Hopefully, by then, the rains will have stopped.

The next two meetings are also Monday potlucks at the Shelter:  August 9 and September 13.  Meetings will return to the Lodge on the second Monday in October.

Although the number of campers at Harmony Lake in May was less than normal, a great time was had by all.  Skip Lampman won card bingo and Joyce Cordova took Left/Right/Center.

The Northwest Elks RV Rally will be July 22 to 25th at the Polk County Oregon Fairgrounds.  Our hosts will be Lorene Brannan and the Lewises.  Registration is closed but there may still be room (with a late fee).  Call Sherie Lewis at 360-692-6505 if you are interested in attending.

There will a Wednesday restaurant outing and Thursday dinner by the hosts. The normal games are planned.  Members with books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, etc, that have not been turned in to the Club, should take them direct to the Rally for sale.

August 18 to 22 we will travel to the Outback RV Park at Rochester.  Hosts will the Fallehys and Bellings.  September’s outing will be at the Yakama Nation RV Park in Toppenish the 15th to 19th.  Hosts will the Schmittlers, Lewises and Halls.

SUNSHINE:  Please contact Sherie Lewis if you have Sunshine news.  At the May meeting, Sunshine was reported for Ben and Marcella Peterson, Judy Gertsch, and Cliff Lillybridge – all for death in the family.  And illness for Ed Turner, Ellena Retzlaff, JoAnne Foskett, Dick Davis and Sam Josephson.

Dues are due.  For payment or membership information, call Kathy Josephson, 360-692-8642.   Prospective members are always welcome as guests at outings or meetings.

Tickets for the Darrell Schmittler crafted patio set are on sell by Travel N Fun Members and in the Lodge office (and will be sold at the family picnic).  Lorene Brannan will be in charge of raffle sales. 

New rosters are available.  Call Sherie Lewis for your copy.  Labels are available for changes.

Historian Karen Belling needs outing pictures, rosters etc for the Club records.

Stephanie Schmittler is taking orders for items embroidered with the Travel N Fun logo:  Shirts, sweatshirts, and vests.  Please call her at 360-2875-6314 if you wish to place an order.

Stephanie is looking for members for a nominating committee for officer elections.  In 2011, every officer position is up for election (though we hope some return).
