Our trip to Welch Village this year was a great one! We had perfect weather around the freezing mark and most importantly no one was seriously injured. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Queenie had a great weekend on her two new knees, and Ron was back on his skis this year after ending his ski season early last year when he injured his knee in a fall. Deb Hylek got back on her horse after falling and seriously injuring herself three years ago at Welch. In fact, she was channeling Norm’s spirit by using the skis he left behind when he passed! Jack Warner reports that he fell off the horse, but was not seriously injured and still had fun. Oh, the kids! We had lots of kids with us this trip and every one of them enjoyed the snow.
Barb Westphal’s sons Scott & Steve, and her grandkids both reported having a wonderful time and can’t wait for next year! Ruth Ann’s grandsons Matthew and Jacob said they both knew they would like it, but they didn’t know how much they would REALLY LIKE IT and asked grandma if they can go again next year thanks to Sherry for helping them around the
hill to inspire their love of skiing! The Newmans had a great time and the entire bus enjoyed singing Happy Birthday to Noelle. Dee’s family all enjoyed the trip as well. Our newest members, Jim Capparelli and Kris Mokrzycki skipped the skiing the second day and spent the day exploring the town of Red Wing. Good to know that there are so many interesting things to see!

Thank you all for being a great group and making our jobs easy!

Your Welch trip leaders, Jim & Salle Rorie.
