Gilbert-Summit Fire Department BBQ

Dear Whiteplains neighbors,

There is less than a week left until the May 5 Gilbert-Summit Fire Department Bar-B-Que. Thank you to the many neighbors who have contacted me and purchased a $7 Bar-B-Que chicken or pork dinner, and decided to join the neighborhood gathering in our hangar at 12 noon Saturday, May 5. Ken and I are excited about the support the community has shown to the local fire department for the fourth year in a row.

If you have not yet purchased a ticket and would like to do so, please see me before May 5. If you are unable to participate in this event, but would like to make a donation to the Gilbert-Summit Fire Department, please make a check out to them, and forward it to me.

Again, thank you for supporting our local fire department.

Ray Chaplin's Annual

Just a couple of pictures of the activity going on in Ray Chaplin's hanger during the annual on his Erocouple. It's been a very interesting adventure.
Jim Causey dropped by to see what was going on and Jack put him right to work, doing what he does best. We even got a smile out of Jim.

Bar-B-Que Lunch Gilbert-Summit Fire Department

Dear Whiteplains neighbors,

On Saturday, May 5, 2007 the Gilbert-Summit Fire Department will be holding their annual Bar-B-Que lunch. Gilbert-Summit is the primary responder for fires in our neighborhood, and this Bar-B-Que is their big annual fund-raiser.

As in the previous three years, I am selling tickets in advance for this event. Then, with the help of some neighbors, we will pick up all the ordered meals at the fire department, and bring them back to Whiteplains for a community lunch gathering in our hangar at 12 noon. All are invited to join us.

Tickets are $7.00 each .... you can choose either a pork or chicken dinner. We will provide sodas and dessert.

You can contact me directly, or I will seek you out to purchase tickets and take your family's order for the Bar-B-Que. This must be done prior to May 5, the date of the event.

If you are not able to participate in this event, or if you are an out-of-state or out-of-country property owner, and you would still like to support the local Fire Department, donations in the form of checks, made out to the Gilbert-Summit Fire Department, can be forwarded to me.

This is a great opportunity to express our appreciation to our local Fire Department for the services that they provide to our community. It's also a fun time for the neighbors to get together and visit!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

New Signs at Whtieplains

You may have noticed a few new signs that have gone up at Whiteplains this past weekend. So far about a dozen signs have gone up with more to follow. We have tried to place them where they can be easily seen. They are made of high quality material and should last a good while.

Reported by Bill Como and Don Cook.
