Dogwood Sams Annual January Eat Out


January 27, 2020

It was a “Good Day in the Neighborhood” for a nice luncheon with our Dogwood Sams Chapter members and guests. Our room at the Golden Corral in Tyler was large enough to accommodate our 27 eager members and guests. I say eager because we all had stories and memories to share as we had not seen each other since first week of December! It did get a little noisey and loud a time or two. Hope it wasn’t too much for the guests Ben & Angela Starr brought, Corky & Tom Olsen, from Wisconsin. My goodness, that is a long way from Texas and a very cold place this time of year! It is always a pleasure to have Darrell & Wanda Underwood’s daughter, Tammy join us. Seems she is about to go North to spend some time with her little granddaughter in Oregon.

We missed James & Margaret Taylor, Jerry & Brenda Scott, Derrell & Wilma Clark, Shirley Coon, Tom & Nell Bills and Dewey & Ruth Ashworth. Our Chaplain, Curtis Coombs led us in prayer asking for God’s blessings and healing for our members who are ill and for H.L. & Mary Langston’s son, Curtis. Please continue prayers for Curtis and family as he has a very hard and long road ahead.

We were anticipating visiting with the Kuhns who have been in contact with me regarding our chapter. Unfortunately they were sidetracked and unable to attend but are planning to attend the February camp out. And of course, we are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible February 24-26 at Lake Athens Marina in Athens.
