We had a blast this year at the 2008 Annual Buttonwood Meet & Greet. The event grew three times over and was 50 times more fun. We got to meet all you great people and see all your great work. Even the dogs got along!!!!
I want to begin by thanking each and every one of you (the members of Sunline Owner's Club) for all your advice, problems, concerns, gripes, pictures, ideas, well you get the idea!!!! If not for each and every unique member, this place would be just another Blog. So turn around and pat yourselves on the back for making this place a success!!!!
As far as the M&G, I have to thank the people who made the quest for the mailbox successful. (for those not at the 2008 M&G, We were able to get the original Sunline mailbox and present it to Jon (Sunlinefan)). First thanks go to Ruth Devenney from High Associates LTD who was the only contact I had to get to the owners of the building. She was instrumental in us getting the mailbox.
Tim & Marge Kissling from Precision Coating Technology. (the new owners of the main building) They had to disrupt their mail flow in order to remove the mailbox. They have to wait for another one to be fabricated (not done yet). Tim & Marge..........my hat's off to you!!!
Dale Zimmerman...........for allowing us to have the mailbox. Dale had the right to the mailbox as the prior owner of the building and he chose to let us have it. For those not at the M&G, he sent the following email:
Hello Mr. Reed,
I'm pleased to hear that you will be presenting the "Sunline mailbox" to
Jon. There is no one more deserving. Thank you for the update on what is
happening with the Sunline Owner's group.
I appreciate your invitation but unfortunately my family and I already
made plans for the same weekend. I'm sorry to be missing this event,
perhaps later this year or maybe next year.
Please give my best regards to everyone.
Thank you Dale for giving us an RV that will last and last and last. Your dedication to quality is unsurpassed and we think of your dedication to that quality every time we hook up. Hope to see you next year!!!
I have to thank Buttonwood Campground for bending over backwards to accomodate us. The owners are friendly & helpful (just ask TinyblueTJ). The use of the group area and fire ring helped to make this meeting the success that it was.
Jon..........Thanks not only for the goodie bags, but thank you for sharing your knowledge of the Sunline RV with the rest of us. You are very instrumental in the success of Sunline Owner's Club
Tom & Mary............what can I say??? So much behind the scenes work!!! I don't think you even know how many hours went into this event. Enormous success and you made it happen.
Mike & Ros.........wonderful Tee-Shirts. Thanks so much
Dave & Jill.............the silent auction was a success. Everyone left thinking of things to bring next year. (for those not here this year, we had a silent auction with proceeds going toward the cost of running this site). Sunday breakfast was great
John B.................I know you needed a back rub after Saturday from carrying that jack around all day. Great Job (and we learned something too)
Jason...........thanks for the CD mix..........very well put together.
Everybody who made the trip to be with us....................thank you so much for sharing your time and smiles with the group. My only hope is that you had as good of a time as we did and I hope to see each and every one of you next year. Take Care........................Marshall & Sue
One more thing..................for those interested, the owners of Buttonwood gave me the web page where he purchased the fire ring. It is
