Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter

After two years of COVID lock downs and restrictions our Chapter activities started off tentatively with what turned out to be a very enjoyable luncheon meeting, which took place
May 11th. at the Bella’s Restaurant in Clarenville. After some discussion centred around future activities it was the consensus that we should make every effort to have a get together, or
preferably a rally of some sort, in June. It was the general consensus that even, if we could not have all the “good times” we had in former years that we should at least get together for a
weekend of fellowship. Accordingly a reservation was made at the HWD Shriners Park at Eastport for the weekend of June 17th., 18th. and 19th. for a weekend of fellowship and
hopefully at least some of the activities we enjoyed in previous years. Unfortunately no one present would take on the position of Wagon-master but it was agreed that everyone would help
out in any way they could if a coordinator was found. President Leo Bonnell agreed to act as coordinator.

The result was a wonderful opening Rally at Eastport. The attendance of nine couples was a bit disappointing (due to the short notice several members had made arrangements for trips to the
mainland and others had “Fathers Day“ family commitments while one or two members felt uncomfortable meeting so soon after the COVID restrictions had been lifted but all attendees had a
great time and participated fully in the weekend activities.

This included a “Meet and Greet” on Friday evening followed by a short musical performance and singalong. Saturday morning saw the preparation for our “Hot-dog and Hamburger” lunch
and we had our “Games Session” in the afternoon. At 6.00pm we had our “Social Hour” followed by a catered “Newfoundland Traditional Dinner” with all the trimmings, desert and
coffee/tea at Gerties Restaurant. This was followed by music and dancing back at the Park. The weekend concluded with a Gospel Hour and “Potluck” meal on Sunday morning, and a
wonderful synopsis of the weekend highlights, in rhyme, by our new “resident poet”, Charlotte.

We also held a September rally at the Blue Fin Campground in Holyrood. Again the attendance was not as good as we would have liked, however , in spite of the inclement weather everyone
had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the excellent food, great music and some energetic indoor “baseball” games, during which the men’s team proved to be no match for ladies.

The weekend schedule followed the same format as the June Rally but of course, all the activities had to be moved indoors. After the “potluck” lunch on Sunday everyone said their
“Goodbye’s” for the year while expressing their hopes that we will all be able to get together again in May, when plans should be well under way for the 2023 camping season. President
Leo closed the weekend by wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas season and Peace, happiness and prosperity for 2023.
