Presidents Corner May 2016

"Summer Time, and the livin' is easy. Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high. Your Daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'." I am listening to Ella Fitzgerald sing this song as I write this message. It is one of my favorite memories from my youth. It seems appropriate, as the Ocala Central Sams has now adjourned for the summer, not to gather again until September when autumn will be near at hand. Sue and I will on the road heading for the Rockford, Illinois area in a week or so and likely won't return until late August. Our immediate plans are to spend time with our children, especially our daughter, who remains in a rehab facility in Rockford. There are a few important matters we need to resolve from a legal perspective so that we can insure that she is taken care of and her interest are protected. But that is a conversation for another time and place. We will be heading to Forest City, Iowa for the Winnebago Grand National Rally in July but plans are uncertain beyond that. We hope that all of you enjoy a fantastic summer wherever your travels may take you. While we were gathered at Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park this month I was approached and asked if we have a Facebook page and the response was yes, but no one keeps it up or adds to it.

that shocuolmdn't be too hard for me to remember. I have added several of the members who were already on my personal friends list to the group and am encouraging you to please join the group. To do so, open your Facebook pages, in the search bar, type Ocala Central Sams, then hit like and/or join. This is currently a closed group meaning only active members of our Chapter will be added to the group, so either one of the current site administrators or I will add you to the group. It is my hope that this FB page will become a place where we can stay in touch, share our adventures, and post pictures. It also can be a place where we share information with members. As I said, this is currently a closed group, but someday, we may feel the need to change that to an open group, I ask that you all be patient with me as I am trying to learn how all of this works and how we can use it for the benefit of our membership. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please communicate with me by message on Facebook or text me at 815-543-4831 and I will work to answer your concern as quickly as I can.

Monday evening everyone was on their own. Tuesday morning we started with a great breakfast with all the trimmings.

The ladies met after breakfast to make more blankets for the children of Boggy Creek.


Wednesday morning started out with another great breakfast followed by our monthly meeting at the couch. There was another function in the club house.

The guys did what they do best. TALK

Some of us went to the pool, which was very nice, and some read or took naps. We got together for happy hour before eating our wonderful picnic dinner. Rick out cooked himself with smoked pork! YUM, YUM!! We luckily had enough for sandwiches the next day for lunch. That was followed by ice cream sundaes and other yummy desserts. We were all pleasingly full. Later we played Take Out the Trash with Chuck winning all the Nichols.
