PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE (Special April mid-month flash)

My dear friends.  Didn’t we have a wonderful Convention?  I’m sure we all wish to convey a special thanks to our fellow Questers who belong to Clara B. Eno Chapter for their exceptional efforts to bring us all together in a way to be enjoyed.  They certainly were successful.

There was a very nice place to stay and to meet.  There were excursions to points of interest important to Questers.  There were places to shop for anything your heart desired.  There were two extraordinary entertainments:  Miss Laura, madam of renown, one of her girls, and a questionable snake-oil salesman who claimed to have the cure for “hot-thigh-itis”; and the spiritual presence (incredibly opaque and appropriately dressed) of Judge and Mrs. Parker who we learned were community leaders and who both contributed a great deal toward the taming of the territory.

I also want to say a personal thank you all for your participation in our fundraising efforts.  As one who won one of the gift cards and has already spent most of it, I can say , “I got lucky!”  Who wouldn’t want to win money?  And WOW.  The baskets were indescribable – exquisite roses made of real money; a Russian Egg; antiques, edibles, and goodies of every sort.  Every single contribution was something everyone wanted.  CONGRATULATIONS to us all!

Tell your friends about The Questers.  Let’s share our good fortune with everyone we know.

Questers RESTORE!  Questers PRESERVE!  Questers COLLECT!  Questers SHARE!

What If ?
You had to start each day with no memory, record or treasure of the past ?
Historians neglected to educate the public ?
Adults failed to interest younger generations in the past ?
No one ever challenged the research of historians ?
The little syrup pitcher that could.

Find this little syrup pitcher that started it all somewhere on this website. It will be moved each month to a different page on the website. Home page doesn't count.  Email rlpoole@swbell.net if you find it. It's fun to search and a joy to find.

Jane Bilon found the pitcher on the Preservation/Restoration page. Way to go Jane. The pitcher has now moved now to a new location. GO FISH!
