Looks like November is starting out with a chill in the air. I am sorry that this letter is a tad late, but we spent the last few days in Kansas City because our youngest son finally found the one and was married on Saturday. Great weekend with family and friends.
November is a month with a couple of important days on the calendar. First is Veterans Day, November 11, almost all communities have the day set aside for various activities for gathering and remembering the sacrifices of our veterans. Next gathering this month normally involves family and sharing love and food at Thanksgiving. I remember back when Grandmas house just about did not hold the family but it always seemed to work out. Let us all be thankful at this time.
I know that some of you have already moved toward a warmer climate and many of you will be moving later this year. We will be sending out the Newspaper in January and the post office will not forward this paper because of the bulk rate we use to mail the paper. We need your winter address so you can receive the paper. At the Rally there was only one that left their winter address. Please contact Pat Nippert if you have a winter address you would like your paper sent to. While we are talking about the paper, we need your chapter news. How about your outing schedule; where are you going; what’s new. Let’s try to have all chapters submit something for the paper. ASD’s, we would like your District Camping Schedules and if possible a brief comment about your activities for the weekend. Please submit your items to Dave Marlowe this month. Also if you have any one that would like to purchase an add let us know so we can get it in the paper.
We have sent thank you letters for those who donated items for our Rally. I would like to thank the many Chapters who donated door prizes, cakes and cookies. This was greatly appreciated.
The following are Dates of Activities for 2018 that I have at this time. If I have not included something, it is because I don’t have confirmed dates.

I know that some Chapter Officers will be changing. It is important that we keep communications with everybody. I will be getting a new list as soon as all chapters have turned their paper work in to Pat. If for some reason I have not entered your email correctly and you do not receive my monthly letter, please let me know. Also, I would like each Chapter to continue to send your Chapter Minutes to me each month.
Please share this letter with your chapter members.
Make Your Journey Count,
Dean & Karen Stewart
