Local chapter by Carole Maxwell and Nancy Schad
Hi from New Jersey. We had four coaches go to GNR this year.Nancy and Mike Schad, Sue and George Shinkunas, Janet and Charlie Rizzuto and Joyce and Vito Rizzuto. Everyone had a good time and plan on going again.
August campout was at Pinch Pond in Pennsylvania.Those present were Kathy Knight, Carole Maxwell/Frank Horton, Tess Eakins, Cindy and Cork Smith, Dea Pittman, Gary and Elaine Schmidt, Patricia and Gary Takata and Ed Pirkey/Joan Graupner. Dea Pittman had Diane Burges as a guest and Tess Eakin had guest Barb Heinrich. We had our usual campfire and we noticed a Winnebago in the campground with New Jersey plates. So Carole Maxwell went over and introduced herself and we invited Kathy and Tim Chin for Saturday breakfast and dinner with us. They accepted and to our delight have joined our club. Welcome.
September campout was at Seashore Campground in Cape May New Jersey. We had 17 rigs. What a good time we had. Some came on Thursday and we started our campfire. Frank Horton is our fire master or fire bug, whichever. Those present were Kathy Knight, Karen and Bob Trace, Patricia and Gary Takata, Leslie Houston, Cindy and Cork Smith, Carole Maxwell/ Frank Horton, Gail Sears, Tess Eakin, Jennifer and Gary Gore, Jean and Bob Graga, Joan Gaupner/Ed Pirkey, Judy and Mike Kane, Sue and George Shinkunas, Mike & Nancy Schad, Kathy and Tim Chin and guests Carol and Bob Ketchersid. Leslie and Tom Barnes came to visit and were with us for dinner. They sold their coach to Carol and Bob Ketchersid and they have joined our chapter also. We welcome and enjoy the new people.
Friday night we went out to dinner at the Harbor View Restaurant. Beautiful views and great food. Our Saturday breakfast and Saturday dinner were in the activity room, and a good time was had by all. Our campfire keeps getting bigger and so much fun. Nancy Schad has been voted our official photographer. Tess Eakins had guests Pat and Joe Horgan from Virginia. They were camping at Cape Hatteras when the hurricane arrived and came to New Jersey to be with Tess Eakins.
We will meet again in November at Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Till then safe trips, thoughts and prayers to all.
