We started January with several plans that got way laid by the weather. Oh well it is, after all, winter in New Hampshire. Regardless of the weather we still had several events.
We enjoyed a great slide show of past Hollis Old Home Days. It was fun seeing some of the old floats, parade vehicles and antique cars.
At the next meeting Honi Glover told of her experiences as a lady driving 18 wheel tractor-trailers. Remember, Honi started driving when basically driving big rigs was a “mans’ world.” The tales of her experiences showed that Honi was a pioneer among women drivers. And the rigs she drove were not air-conditioned, required double clutching to shift gears, etc. Nothing like today’s big rigs that have bunk beds, air-conditioning, satellite communications, GPS, and every other gadget and convenience.
We finished up the month with our business meeting where members got to voice their recommendations for future outings and events.
Finally, the month had a sad note with the passing of Dot Warren. Dot was a “fireplug” among our group and she was always ready to step in to help the group. Our condolences to Dot’s family – Dot will be missed
