President's Message - June 2016
Well it has happened…..Havasu hit 100 degrees. Time to put the jeeps away for a few months until it cools off. But before you cover up that vehicle for the summer why not crawl under it to check all the nuts & bolts and grease all those working parts that need it. If you aren’t the mechanical type, I am sure the local auto repair establishments would appreciate your business.
This month is a special day for the Fathers across the country. On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1966 when, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. HAPPY FATHERS DAY.
Most of our winter visitors have headed back to their home state and some of us who live here full time are also getting the urge to leave for cooler weather. Then there are the brave souls who stick around most of the summer and seem to find ways to stay cool. Remember to take lots of pictures of your activities this summer and send them to the newsletter Editor, Tim Maskell. Without jeeps runs the newsletter needs a little filler and those pictures more than serve the purpose.
Have a GREAT summer. Looking forward to seeing everyone in September,
