July-August 2018 MisSPrintS

Commander’s Message

Goals 2018: Education, Education, Education

 Summer is officially here! Not only by the calendar but by the scorching heat.  I find myself doing more labor either earlier in the morning or later in the evening and taking siesta time in the midday.  At least that’s my story (or excuse) and I am sticking to it!  

Speaking of labor, I want to thank Gary Wildman for his time, patience and instructions while teaching Advanced Piloting.  It paid off as both John White and I passed the course and test.  Congrats to you, John.

And now that hubby has brought our boat back to TN from Florida I just may make use of this new knowledge.  Like letting me plot the way to Florence AL for the July trip to the WC Handy Music Festival or a trip up the beautiful Tennessee River.   Look out boating community here I come.

Another place I need to get knowledgable about is our beautiful Pickwick State Park.  Why, because in October we are co-hosting (with Music City Squadron) our District 17 Fall Conference to be held at the Inn at Pickwick Landing.  During this weekend conference we will have the opportunity to show off our area to visiting squadrons from Atlanta, Birmingham, Montgomery, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Huntsville, Oak Ridge and Johnson City.  The District Conference is an opportune time for squadron members to meet, exchange ideas and develop friendships.  

But that is not until the Fall so for now l will get back into summer mode.   Is it siesta time yet?

Fair winds and following seas,

Barbara
