Highlights from GEAR

GEAR (The Greater Eastern Area Rally) was a great success! Despite the economic situation and lower attendance, there was a nice selection of seminars, vendor exhibits, entertainment and a good time shared by all. Click here for photos from the rally.

Thanks to the Noltes and Gruels who hosted the Dogwood social hour. Our hosts provided a nice selection of goodies as well as good weather (it had been raining). We had a good turnout and a lot of fun. There were several impromptu happy hours throughout the week at the Alexanders and Duffs.

We discovered a hidden talent. The Dogwood Dodgers placed 4th in the bean bag baseball competition. Our star players were Ryland & Evelyn Watts.

Special recognition should be given to Dogwood members Wilt & Barbara Greenwood who put in a lot of effort throughout the year to make this event such a success. Thanks to Berkley & Karen Alexander (chairman for seminar monitors), Paul & Nancy Cummings (chairman for motor home exhibits), and to the many Dogwood members who volunteered during the rally.
