MAB August, 2015 Rally
The August 20 - 23, 2015 MAB rally was held at the White River Campground in Cicero, Indiana with Melvin and
Nancy Coy and Jerry and Carol Hardacre hosting. MABs in attendance were Lynn and Shirley Blair, the Coys, Jim
and Marsha Hall, the Hardacres, Steve and Debbie Rittenhouse, Pat and Carol Robison, Larry and Jolly Ann
Whitener, and Bob and Paula Young.
Thursday evening opened the rally with our usual welcome get-together with a shared light meal. We gathered
Friday morning for a breakfast of pancakes and eggs cooked to order by the hosts. Hardacres had organized a tour
of nearby Anderson, Indiana with visits to Good’s Candy Shop and the renovated Paramount Theater among other
landmarks. The day ended with a Crabfest Buffet at the Hoosier Park Casino. Then it was back to the campground to
enjoy a campfire along the White River.
Saturday morning brought a breakfast of French toast sticks and sausage prepared by the hosts, followed by a
business meeting. Jan Israelson visited for the day and several of us went to lunch with her. Others went their own
way, sightseeing in the area.
Dinner on Saturday was ham provided by the hosts and side dishes provided by the rally attendees. Our 50/50
drawing was held with Larry Whitener winning $26 and a like amount going to our charity. Following our dinner, Paul
and Carolyn Kees provided root beer floats to those who wanted them, followed by a presentation about Sky Med. A
nice campfire finished off the evening.
Sunday morning ended our rally with a continental breakfast and devotions led by Melvin, followed by our “Good-
Byes” and departures for home.
