Forman Rally coming up July 19-22 – Welcome to New Members!

From Unit President Jack –  Some thoughts to share with you as this Rally approaches.  We have been members of this unit for 30 plus years and never have we had a period of time like the last year in which FIVE units have joined our unit. While we have not had the opportunity to meet all of our new members, we hope the upcoming rallies this year will afford us all, that opportunity.  We have seen from the Valley City rally that each place in our area has unique features waiting to be discovered, toured and enjoyed by our members.  Information from Kathleen on the Rally site indicates the electric is available in 15 and some 30 amp services. Arlene and I are looking forward to enjoying your company at this Rally.   To view or download the Rally Schedule, click Forman Rally Schedule

There’s still time to join us in Carrington!

Our Spring Rally and luncheon kicks off tomorrow at the City Campground in Carrington in central North Dakota.  We’ll head out for a tour of the Carrington Research Extension Center at 1:30 pm.  Saturday, there are garage sales city-wide to put a little adventure in the morning.  At Noon we will meet at the Chieftain Motel for our spring luncheon and business meeting.  Afterwards, we will head out to Dakota Sun Gardens and Winery for a pre-Happy Hour sample of local wines.  Saturday will be a “grill your own” and bring a side dish to share for an evening of good conversation, great food and plans for our summer adventure.  There’s still time to join us – don’t forget to bring some warmer clothing, the weather forecast is not going to be too generous with Spring warmth.

Unit Founding Member passes away

We are sorry to report that one of the Peace Garden Unit’s founding members has passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s. Some of you may not remember him, but Robert Detlaff was a walking source of knowledge and skill.  He was a talented woodworker, hard-working farmer and an avid birder – from him I learned how to spot a tiny finch in flight just by their scalloped dance across the sky.  He and his wife Shirley were so welcoming and gracious to us at our very first unit rally.  Robert was a past unit president and served as the presiding officer at the 2007 Fall Installation Rally.  His Airstream was a masterpiece of woodwork – at first glance you could tell he took great pride in his trailer – his love affair with camping spanned decades and his family was often helping with and sharing in the festivities.

Robert was 89 years young and passed away in a Minot healthcare facility. Funeral Service are 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Minot. Visitation: Friday, April 7, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in Thomas Family Funeral Home, Minot. In lieu of flowers and plants please consider sending a memorial donation to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, ND Alzheimer’s Association or to an organization of your choice.  To read his complete obituary, go to:  http://www.thomasfamilyfuneralhome.com/obituaries
