Deaths: Paul Large of Saddlebag Trail South passed away earlier this month. Cards may be sent to his companion Germaine Brzezinski at the local address in the directory.
Illness: Emma Lou Ashley is back home from Lake Wales Medical Center following a three day stay with gout in her right foot. It's gone now and Emma Lou is doing great. She thanks her many Saddlebag friends for the prayers, thought, visits, cards and food received while she recuperates from the knee surgery.
Ron Casey's doctors still don't know where Ron is losing blood. Although the bleeding has slowed down some, he is very tired and still has to go in for blood transfusions. Additionally, their daughter-in-law is in a hospital in Milwaukee, WI . where she had open heart surgery to correct a birth defect. The same surgery done three years ago, but it has grown back. This time she is having a difficult time and is ICU and Ron and Jo are caring for the two boys. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Thank You: Kay Bloom expressed her thanks for the cards of condolence she received following the passing of Jerry.
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.

Day Trips and Overnight Trips
I have re-connected with Cynthia Hartline of C&D Tours to book some day trips and overnight trips for the 2011-2012 season. Many people inquired last year, wanting to do some so I will post the trips that are planned as of right now. If you have any suggestions/requests, please email or call me and I will do my best to set it up with Cynthia. In order for a bus to pick us up here at Saddlebag, we need a minimum of 20 people (that's if it's a combined trip with another park). If it's just a SLR trip, the minimum to make it a “go" is 45 (but also depending on the bus size.) Cynthia is strictly using Small World Tours' buses for transportation. Her prices are a few dollars within the prices The Senior Circle is charging.
Here a few already planned: June 4th: “Mommies" $60.00(call me ASAP if you are interested in this one!), July 27th: Daytona Kennel Club $47.00, August 10th: Show Palace “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" $76.00, Nov. 26th: Show Palace Christmas $75.00, Nov. 29th: Ellenton Outlet mall $31.00, Dec.9th: Mt. Dora $44.00. Jan. 29th: Biloxi- Feb. 1st, staying at Imperial Palace $249.00 ppdo. Call me for the details on these trips or any others. Thanks everyone! I'd like to help make this a fun year for you!
