The 2017 National rally, Shawnee Jamboree is over and was enjoyed by over 230 happy campers.  Missouri Valley was in charge of the food.  I only heard compliments for which I am thankful.  Droffs, inc. the catering company- did an excellent job.

Missouri Valley Chapter had six coaches in attendance. A seventh, Darrel and Connie Hubble from Jefferson City, MO encountered trouble with their coach and did not make it.  We all dread that happening while traveling.  Out of our six, two coaches were first timers.  They are: Harold and Marcia Stone from Jackson, MO and Gary and Brenda Nash from Bolivar, MO.  In addition former President Jim and Donna Catron (and Abby), James and Hil Monahan and Gary and Barb Park completed our group.  We enjoyed the fellowship of our “bonus friends.”

Since Shawnee- I am no longer the entire Board of Directors of Missouri Valley.  In a meeting Jim Catron nominated Gary Park as Vice-President, he agreed to serve and was unanimously elected.  WELCOME GARY!!  However I whispered to him “thank you” and that I was still the boss.

Until we meet again,

Barbara Weeks,

President Missouri Valley
