We are sad to announce that on July 18, 2020 we had to say goodbye to Jerry Harbour (Alvin, Texas). You can send your sympathy in the guestbook provided and share it with the family. You may also light a candle in honor of Jerry Harbour or send a beautiful flower arrangement to the funeral service.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, July 26th 2020 from 1:30 PM to 6:00 PM at the Oak Park Chapel (300 Oak Park Dr, Alvin, TX 77511). A funeral service will be held on Monday, July 27th 2020 at 1:00 PM at the same location.
Jerry Wayne and Mary Ann Harbour joined the Texas Cushman Club in 1995. Their membership number was # 793.
The TCC officers meet in Wichita Falls June 27, 2020. Dee Van Winkle hosted us at the MPEC ( Multi Purpose Event Center). There are plenty of hotels and camping sites, so read further about the plans.
We will be using Exhibit Area B of the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall. These doors are on the West side of the building. Our Texas Cushman Club banner will be hung in this area for you to easily find the State Meet.
Welcoming us was Michael Tipton, General Manager of MPEC. We will be entering through the doors behind him. To the left are the windows of the Concession Stand which will be open for your food needs early morning though lunch.
Schedule, registration forms, and more information can be located under the tab “2020 38th State Meet” on the Home Page of the website.
Please remember, to order your t-shirts and/or enter the 100 year ride by Sept. 23, 2020.
At the 2019 Texas State Meet a total of $2391 was raised and donated to the American Cancer Society. $500 was donated to the building of the new Hope Lodge in Houston in honor of all Texas Cushman Club members who are cancer survivors.
A second paver was purchased via a single donation in memory of Brenda Smith, wife of Lewis Smith.
Pictures of those pavers are attached.
Each Hope Lodge offers cancer patients a free place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment may be in another city. Not having to worry about where to stay or how to pay for lodging allows guests to focus on getting better. Hope Lodge provides a nurturing, home-like environment where guest can retreat to private rooms or connect with others. Every Hope Lodge also offers a variety of resources and information about cancer and how best to fight the disease. There are three Hope Lodges in Texas, Lubbock, Dallas and now, Houston.
A group of Cushman riders FINALLY got a chance to meet, ride and eat. The Possum Kingdom ride was organized by Gene Perry. The group began their week on June 22 and left for home on June 26. There were 15 scooters and lots of riding.
The full story will be in the upcoming newsletter. I can share the pictures and let you enjoy their outing. Thanks to Gene Perry ( and those who used his camera for him) and Belinda Beck for the pictures.
