August−Greetings, Green Country Winnies! We were at McClain's for another successful Show and Tell on Aug. 10-12. We had 23 members who came for at least one of the three days. Those in attendance were: Mary Barton, HB and Gayle Canida, Darrell and Connie Carver, Alice Combs, Mike and Susie Grimes, Nate and Reatha Hill, Tom Murdoch, Gene and Delores Parnell, Arno Pautsch, Bill and Carolyn Roberts (new Sooner Schooner members who recently moved from TX to Norman), Mary Sill, Susie Smeal, Larry Theriot, Mary Ann Turley, Fred Zacher, and Ken and Donna Zwiegel.
We cooked the normal meal—ham and beans, corn bread, hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and cookies. We met a lot of nice customers and saw our McClain's friends again. On a personal note, the salesman who Donna and I worked with at Dean's when we were deciding between buying our Via from Dean's or McClain's, now works at McClain's. It was good to see Pepper and be able to wish him the best at his new job.
During August we added five new members: Steve and Ann Hoover from Muskogee. They visited us shortly at an outing in Grove in October 2016. Mary Barton from Enid. Mary came to our state rally a couple of years ago. She lived in MS then, but she has now moved to Enid where her daughter lives. Paul and Janey Ronck from Pawhuska. They became new members of WIT in May.
