Park County Party

The Hoosier Cruisers convened at the Park County Fairgrounds for the October Rally.  Rally Masters Dean and Beverly Johnson, and Assistant Rally Masters Harry and Connie DeCausemaker arranged for camping at the fairgrounds which is a level and easy place to camp.  Thursday, members enjoyed a great dinner at the 36 Saloon which seemed like a lodge on the inside.  The restaurant specialized in smoked ribs and BBQ pork.  The next day the participants enjoyed touring the covered bridges and the small communities that had many, many booths of handmade items and crafts.  Rockville and Bridgeton had a wide variety of items for sale that were both unique and well made.  That evening we traveled to Turkey Run State Park and most members enjoyed the buffet.  Upon returning to the campground, Marv Olson started a campfire which was a perfect ending to the day on a cool evening.

Saturday, members again enjoyed the sights near Rockville or an easy day visiting with friends.  The Rally Masters provided fried chicken for dinner and the sides were provided by Crusiers.  No one went home hungry.  The rally ended Sunday with coffee and donuts.  Bettie Wessel provided devotions that reminded us that our lives are like the crops that are harvested by the farmers, and that we must properly prepare our lives for the a bountiful harvest.

Many thanks go to the Johnsons and DeCausemakers for planning another successful rally.  Thanks!
