Tuesday, September 11th – Gather at 11:30 and meeting starts at noon. Hosted by Evelyn Yates at the Red Barn Restaurant, probably in the watering hole.
We took the month of July off (except for the parade on the 4th) and I didn’t know how much I needed a break until I realized we didn’t need a newsletter or minutes or a meeting place and finally relaxed. We have really been busy this year (I am so proud of us!) and if we are tired, it is understandable.
I think the Shindig was a huge success even if I haven’t heard yet what the final figures are. It was well attended, the food was great, the auction was awesome, the dessert table was decadent (thank you Rosella) and the band was terrific and well received. Kim has already booked the Yarbrough Band for next year, so stay tuned!
Thanks to Beverly, Bobbie and Mary Jo we went right into the 4th of July Parade with our rodeo float and we won 3rd place! It was very gratifying to hear people yell their support as we traveled along saying “I love beef! where’s the beef? What’s for dinner? yeah cowbelles! yeah Shindig!” It almost made me cry.
I attended the Mid-year Meeting in Ruidoso on June 25 and 26th. It was a very worthwhile event but the best part for me was being there to vote yes! when Aubri Allen was nominated for a Pat Nowlin Scholarship. Congratulations Aubri!
A big thank you to our June hostess Judy dePedro assisted by Arley Howard.
