President’s Message

Saturday, February 9th was the RMTC event for the month where 6
members and 6 guests gathered in Parker to watch the play “Newsies”. The play was about a group of newspaper boys taking on the big newspaper businesses, which addressed issues concerning child labor and the formation of Unions. The performers did an outstanding job playing their roles and even met the audience afterwards in the lobby!! The group of 12 met at the Hickory House for BBQ ribs, pulled pork or steaks and had time to sit and socialize.. THANKS to Barb Herbel Hendricks for making all the arrangements for the play and dinner. I only wish Barb would have had a better turnout of RMTC members for all the work she put into trying to organize an event for February!! Next year we will try something more car related!!

The Specialty Auto Auction is March 2nd at the Ranch in Loveland. Call Jim Merritt at 303-472-1328 if you want to help drive cars over the auction block.

Start making your vacation plans and mark your calendars for this year’s “BIRD BATH” to Cheyenne, Wyoming, September 6th– 8th. Laurie Sarno is finishing up the final details, but you can make your hotel reservation now. More information can be found elsewhere in this newsletter. As you can see, many of the various events for this year have already been planned.

The RMTC Officers and Directors have been working very hard to provide the membership with a variety of different activities that will hopefully get you excited and out to join other members. The only way we will know that all of our planning and work is paying off is by your participation!! PLEASE plan to attend as many RMTC functions as you can. Last year 60% of the membership attended at least one scheduled event. I am hoping that we can raise the participation to 75%?? Right now we are at 17% for 2019!

Springtime in the Rockies is HERE,
