Visit to Valley Forge
despite rainy weather
Ten optimistic PrimeTimers left the church at 9 a.m. Oct. 9 to visit Valley Forge.
It was raining as the Stammerjohan squad and the Dick Daugherty contingent drove to Montgomery County, Pa..
It continued to rain as they pulled into the Visitor Center, where they were scheduled to board the trolley for a tour of the area.
The tour was cancelled because the driver had an illness, so the group settled in the comfortable and dry area, listening to a lecturer and seeing a film of the Revolutionary War encampment.
As the two groups set out for lunch at the Tavern, the sun broke through the clouds. Lunch was enjoyed by all.
Dana Milio and Nancy Butler made everyone curious when they asked for more plates until everyone saw that they were sharing their meals. Friends do that.
After leaving the Tavern, Dick Daugherty led the group to the beautiful Washington Memorial Chapel, which still has services today, the National Memorial Arch and on to Washington’s Headquarters.
The ranger reminded the group that the railings going up to the bedrooms on the second floor were the same ones George and Martha touched.
This rainy Monday turned out to be a very fun and pleasant day for the group.

PrimeTimers enjoy luncheon meeting, elect officers for 2018
Fourteen members enjoyed lunch, held officer elections and conducted necessary business during the November meeting of the PrimeTimers on Monday, Nov. 13.
Paul Milio gave the blessing and included prayers for several shut-ins. Thanks to the efforts of the Milio family and other early arrivals, the table was dressed with Thanksgiving decor. Candy, chips, pumpkin pie, and blueberry-peach pie rounded out our brown-bag lunches. Yum!
As for the elections, Judy and Paul Milio will continue as our moderators, Esther Culbert agreed to serve again as our secretary and Jesse Butler will be our new treasurer. The PrimeTimers appreciate the efforts of all officers and extended a special thank you to Ginny Naylor, who has served as treasurer.
The Christmas luncheon will be at noon Monday, Dec. 11. Members must choose an entree from among the following menu options: Sonoma Skewers ($25), Chicken Terra Nova ($18), or Braised Short Ribs ($24). All orders must be in by Nov. 26 and payment given to Ginny Naylor.
Concerns for members unable to attend were shared. The group also sang Happy Birthday to Dana Milio and Happy Anniversary to Paul and Judy Milio.
