Our second campout of the year was held June 20-22 at the Turtle Lake RV Campground in Turtle Lake, WI. It was very special as Northern Lights celebrated its 15-year anniversary as a chapter! We had a total of nine coaches with a few arriving a day early and the rest coming on Thursday. Members, Joe and Vicki Vinopal; who live nearby and honorary member, Mary Lou Pabst, and friend, Dave, joined us for a potluck on Thursday evening, which included a great tasting anniversary cake. Later on some members went to try their luck at a nearby casino while others played cards or other games.
Friday morning we all enjoyed a great breakfast served by our hosts which was followed by our chapter meeting. The meeting was followed by games and just plain ol' good conversation among members. After a social hour on Friday afternoon, we all went to the casino for a wonderful fish fry or a selection of your choice from the menu. A shuttle bus was available for those who did not wish to take their vehicle. Those who felt lucky stayed to play their favorite slots or table games while others returned to play games of their choice.
Saturday morning, after saying our goodbyes, everyone departed their separate ways.
