What is it?

GUESS what this is?

Apple squeezing at Vern and Martha's

Well even though it was very cold on Saturday morning we had a very good turnout for the Shreve's apple squeezing. They had 800 pounds of apples. I don't know how many jars of cider, juice,and sauce the ended up with because I left about 1pm. Of course the press was represented by the presence of editor, reporter, printer, photographer, copy man, and layout man, our own lovable Dennis.And as any kingdom has their king, We have our own King in the form of Vernal at ease on his throne.Here are some of his subjects hard at work.

This is quite the little gadget that Vern made to crush, peal, and squeeze the apples,and it really works. Check out the video at the end of this post.Does anyone think this grumpy old man was really any help?I'm not sure this fellow (Eldon Reiman's son Dale), with his hands in his pocket, was much help But it was good to have him there.

For some of the newer members that aren't real sure just what we do as a club, let me show you one of the things we enjoy. We really enjoy taking trips, some short (one or two days) or longer (up to a week or more). Here some pictures from some of our past trips, I will try to post more pictures of other trips on future posts. I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures as much as we enjoyed taking the trips. I hope this will encourage you to come with us in the future.
Here we are in front of a historic hotel in Republic Washington
This is inside the hotel. Eldon in foreground and Jack an Peggy in the back.
We also visited a classic car museum just up the road from the hotel.
We did a lot of just sitting around as you can see in the picture below.

We ended up at Bob Rupp's sister's house for lunch on the day we left.

I will try to post more pictures of other trips in future posts. Please feel free to leave comments or questions.

At the Veteran's day parade in West Richland we had a special guest show up. Popeye and his girl friend, Olive Oil AKA Dave and Paula Stands.

There were some other people that showed up, but I think they came just to eat the Spudnuts that Ed Edwards brought and to drink Bob McClary's coffee. In attendance were several dignitaries such as Jack Yale, Ed Edwards, Joe Kuhns. Denny Jackson,Vern and Martha Shreve, Russ Armstrong and his niece,and last but not least, Bob and Delores McClary.

At Wednesday's breakfast meeting we got an update from Fred Wattenberger about the progress of the museum, not much is new. We were also informed that the Apple squeezing at Vern and Martha's has been moved from Friday to Saturday the 23rd.

Don't forget to led Roy know if you are going to attend the Christmas Party and how many.

It was also decided to accept a proposal presented by Dennis Jackson as to what it would cost to go back to printing our newsletter in color. if we agree, he has offered to publish the newsletter for one year. At the end of the year if we are satisfied we can renew his contract. More on that later
