This will be my last newsletter for the year 2011-2012. I have enjoyed being your Chef de Gare. We accomplished a lot this last year and I want to thank all of you for your help and support. Read the annual report and you will see what we accomplished. At the Grande Promenade in Lafayette we received three awards: Grande Voiture Locale of the Year, Grande Voiture Activities and Grande Voiture Attendance. Congratulations to the newly elected Dennis Engdahl, Grand Chef de Train; Don Andries, Grand Conducteur; Don Vallery, Grand Drapeau; and Shawn Bohannon, Grand Historien. Now is the time to pay your dues for the 2012-2013 year. There were 7 of us that visited the Northwest Louisiana War Veterans Home on the 16th of July. We had a good turnout and hope you will mark your calendar for the next visit on August 20, 2012. SICK CALL: John Taylor is still at the Northwest Louisiana War Veterans Home. Don Schreiber is home now, recovering from hip surgery. I think next time he will sit down to put on his P.J.s! I would like to thank a few that have been a big help to me this year: Shawn, Terry, “Frog,” Jim C., Milt, T.P., Tommy, Don V. and Carroll. I really appreciated all your input and help. Don’t forget the Promenade on August 2, 2012, at 7:30 PM. We will install our new officers. Come out and cheer them on.
