Old business:
There were reports on both the Coyote Creek Ranch and the Blossom Tour.
1. The Coyote Creek Ranch was a lovely peaceful day spent on the veranda. Everyone
brought their lunch and enjoyed the quiet time resting and visiting with each other.
2. The Blossom Tour was a wonderful success, even though the weather was quite hot
and the drives were long. Tony Wollesen deserves a great big thank you from all who were
able to attend. Tony says that he can’t take all the credit, because he had a lot of helping
Special thanks to the Azevedo’s for their wonderful Hors d‘ oeuvres. Special thanks to the
Morrison’s for their road assistance, which was used quite a bit, and for the Neil’s for their
great coffee break stop. Everyone was quite impressed with the wonderful spread, thank each
and everyone of you.
