President's Corner

This will be my last article as your president, where has the year gone? For Jan and me, it has been a year filled with much enjoyment as we have met so many members, been to so many great places and participated in so many amazing adventures. This is truly a club of fun, friendship, and adventure!

Leading any organization requires a team of people who are all working for the same goals and I have been very fortunate to have such a team supporting the club and my presidency. My biggest thanks go to the headquarters staff in Jackson Center, Ohio who make everything happen and have made me look good for the past year. Thank you, Lori, Julie, Deb and Barb. I hope that you have enjoyed working with Jan and I as much as we have enjoyed working with you! I also want to thank each and every member for their support; you have helped to make this a year of wonderful memories for Jan and me.

In parting, I am reminded of a song made famous by “old blue eyes”.

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way


Travel safe and we will see you in Escanaba!
Richard and Jan
