It's been awhile since a new post club has been started (almost 10 months). Plenty has happened around here - new members have joined, some members have drifted away. Folks have moved their physical location, but are still able to find their way here and have some fellowship with John Wayne fans from around the world.
Chester had the distinct pleasure of making it to the birthday celebration in Winterset, Iowa and meeting face to face for the first time with some of our members (kilo6, BILL of PA, Wayne, zukie, downes, Coach3) and getting reacquainted with some old friends (John Wayne Impersonator). MANY thanks to Murray for the tickets to the VIP dinner for both Jeff and Chester - you really made it happen, Murray! An anonymous benefactor placed our message board on the walkway to the birthplace with the purchase of a tribute brick (check it out in our photo album ).
Some of our members banded together to provide a special gift to board founder Kevin. Boy, was he surprised when that painting arrived from England from Graham. Thanks to all who made that happen!
We've been members here for over 6 years, and continue to have our hearts warmed by the fellowship we have found here. We have friends from all around the world!! Though we not have met most of you in person, we have come to know many of you, and count you as friends.
We dedicate this 8000th post to you!
Fond regards to all,
Chester and the Mrs.
