This year Lloyd & Leona Tatman graciously opened
up their house and hosted
the picnic - A BIG THANK YOU TO LLOYD & LEONA! Starting at around noon,
Chapter H members began arriving, and by 1:30 the picnic was in full swing
with over 30 members in attendance.
The members enjoyed appetizers, hamburgers, hot dogs,
pasta & potato salad,
chocolate cake, cheese cake and too many other treats to mention. I don't
think anyone went away hungry.
One of the highlights of the picnic was the newest
member of Chapter H -
Russell Levin. Russell is the brand new baby boy of Chapter H members Cary
& Kitty Levin. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed spoiling Russell & then handing
him back to his parents! :0)
Among many other interests, Lloyd and Leona are avid
car collectors &
restorers. Lloyd enjoyed quizzing everyone who showed up if they knew the
identity of his "mystery car". After most people incorrectly guessed & gave
up, Lloyd divulged that it is an extremely rare 1953 Muntz convertible (old
timers will remember Muntz's main claim to fame in the 1950's was his line
of television sets!).
In an effort to try and work off some of the food,
some members decided to
toss around a few horseshoes. The highlight of this effort was Coffee
Dick's "double leaner" (check out the picture - it REALLY happened!).
If you didn't attend this year's event, don't miss it next year!
