2015 Installation Dinner

2015 Jeeping Jeepers

Installation Dinner / Luncheon


January 11, 2015, at 1:00 p.m.


Jim and Betty Mills’ Residence

Over the last several years, it has become increasingly difficult to find venues that would accommodate our diminishing membership size and participation.  Therefore, it was decided several months ago that the club installation dinner would be held at a member’s home.  We volunteered.




Rib Eye Steaks

Baked Chicken

Baked Potatoes


Green Salad




It will be a “bring your own bottle” event.  We will furnish coffee, hot water and tea bags.  I HAVE to have commitments from members that:  1) they will be here and, 2) what they will bring by January 6th so I can let everyone know how many will be here so they know how much or how little to bring.


If you need a map to our place, just let me know.                                        Jim and Betty Mills

I received the following from Betty Mills today.

August 20L3

Pioneer Town to Big Bear

August 24,20L3

This trip will take us from Pioneer Town, just outside of Yucca Valley, to the back side of Big Bear Lake. The trail is a bit bumpy with a few moderate climbs that can be tricky, but all in all mostly beautiful scenery in the Burns Canyon area. We will meet at Pioneer town at 10 am and picnic along the trail. There is a Dennys and possibly a "few other restaurants" in Yucca Valley just past the Pioneer Town turn of should you choose to meet earlier for breakfast, Coordinate amongst yourselves if you do. We will start at 10:30 a.m. as there is a great lunch spot about two hours in.

Due to an Arnold Family emergency, the Trail Boss will be Jim Mills .


Please see the attached files for maps and other information!!
