Eric and Dorothy;
I heard about your acceptance into the Heartland Chapter Leader position the other week when Bonnie and I were on the way to see my Dad after a medical event. I promised myself I would send you a congratulatory note when I got back. Well you see how my mind works.
We are so happy that you and Dorothy have accepted the position. There are no two people more qualified in the UNIVERSE. You above all others put so much into the Heartland Owners Club. We know it was a hard decision for you. If you ever need anything let us know. When you decide to have a rally, let us know and we will be there. You have supported us with your friendship and presence always. We will do the same. Thanks again for stepping up for the team.

Eric and Dorothy, How did I not find out about your taking the Chapter Leader positions for Virginia. That is just fabulous. And now we have to start planning a trip to help you with your first official rally. I can't wait. Looking forward to seeing you two next month in Mississippi. Let us know what your plans are for your trek southward. We could sure host you at a pre Rally campout at our favorite little COE park near Tupelo. I am really excited. Congrats again and Thanks for all you do for Heartland Owner Group. No one is more supportive and I expect you will get some payback now.
Hogan and Donna

Eric and Dorothy - Dick and I would like to congratulate you. We'll miss Deb and Gus, but I can't think of a better pair to fill the void. we're hoping to get back into the rally mode this fall.

Does this mean another couple will have to step up their rally attendance and move into the rallyholics president and first lady roles? :confused::cool:

I think this can be a "dual-hatted" role. :)
