MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT FOR JUNE 2014
They say that time flies when you're having fun. It's that time again to write my president's
report and I didn't realize that I was having that much fun. So, here goes.
Andy Clark and I presented the Twin City Idler's scholarship to a deserving Stanwood senior
at the Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation presentation. For me, it sure is different to stand
under the bright lights and speak before a lot of people that you don't know. Andy was a
great help. I used the KISS method - Keep It Simple Stupid!
We had a great tour to Boomers in Bellingham. We took the ever beautiful drive up Chuckanut Drive. It's always a
crowd pleaser. The crew at Boomers were ready for us and did a great job taking care of everyone. A big thank
you goes to Les for leading the procession to a fun day. On the way back, my wife and I took more back roads and
stayed off the interstate all the way back to Camano Island. Fortunately, our route took us by the Snow Goose on
Fir Island so I was able to have a massive single scoop cone of lemon meringue ice cream.
Our next big event is the car show on June 29th. We hope that the proper weather has been ordered and that everyone enjoys
the car show in some way, shape, or fashion. The ones who can find a way to help with the show will be the most appreciated.
This is the first year that my work schedule or lack thereof, will allow me the time to help. I worked third shift for
many years and my sleep schedule was out of sync for the show. One year, I had to drive to Portland to weigh a 777 Sunday
afternoon. There always seemed to be something. Hopefully, I will have no excuses this year. I haven't heard if there is a
controlled cruise ("draggin' gut") on Stanwood's main street the night before the show. It's a fun activity as long as things stay
under control and no one takes out a fence at Stanwood Middle school.
Looking into the near future, the North Cascade Fly-in at the Concrete airport is on Saturday July 26th. In the past,
they've let in the old cars so that the public can look at both beautiful aircraft and automobiles. Sometimes, older
motorcycles show up. In some of the past years, some of the local museums have sent up their Spitfires and Mustangs
to make a little extra noise. Ya gotta love it!! I've babbled long enough. I'll see you at the next meeting, DQ
cruise-in, or morning breakfast at the Stanwood Cafe.
