The RV Club did not meet in January but at the December meeting, there were 24 persons present including Darlene Bryant the guest of Ray Cunningham. Darlene lives on a farm in the country just outside Salem. The December meeting is when we donate to local charities, and we have been very generous by donating thousands of dollars during the past few years. The charities selected for 2020 were Elks Christmas food baskets, Camp Taloali for deaf children, Union Gospel Mission, Vietnam War Memorial, and Willamette Valley Hospice. The total donation amount was $700 including supplemental donations from Jim Klopp and Don Gardner for the Hospice and Taloali charities. Additional business conducted at the December meeting was appointment of various positions required for functioning of our club. The positions are: Club Reporter-John Trammell, Sunshine Reporter-Pat Jones, New member Coordinator-John Trammell, and Sheriff-JoAnna Maddux.The Historian position has not been filled for the past several years.
The club social event for December was a dinner at the lodge where 29 persons attended. The event was arranged by the Trammells, and all who attended seemed to have a very good time. While not an official club event, several members met at the lodge to celebrate and welcome in the New Year. The next club activity is a February 12th brunch at Elmer’s Pancake House Restaurant arranged by the Jonses. On Wednesday March 18 the club will have dinner at the Salem Elks lodge with meals ordered from the menu. That event will be coordinated by Trammells.
That’s all for now, please attend the February 4th club meeting at 7 pm in the Salem lodge.
