Steve Sanderson

Whiteplains Work Day and BBQ

Hear Ye. Hear Ye. Let all that have ears, hear!

As Steve Sanderson announced in an earlier broadcast email, this Saturday is going to be a busy day around the Whiteplains neighborhood.

Please come out and enjoy the neighborhood, neighbors, some work, fun and lunch. There is a rumor there may even be a UFO landing during the day.

Many of you know that Mary Anne Chaplin is leaving the neighborhood headed for new home better suited for her lifestyle. We will be honoring Mary Anne this Saturday during our lunch break. Please take a moment to wish Mary Anne all the best as we give her a warm Whiteplains "good bye."

Please be sure and purchase a ticket for the "Q" prepared by the Gilbert Fire Department. Remember to specify "Yard Bird" (Chicken) or Pork when you purchase your tickets. It has become a tradition within Whiteplains to support our local Gilbert Fire Department. We have a close relationship with these first responders and in the past the money they raised has helped purchase a foam truck along with other needed items. They do a great job and they have been quick to respond to our fire department needs here in Whiteplains.

See you around the Plantation Saturday.

Terry Yon, President Whiteplains Association

Street Sign Re-Installed

Steve Sanderson and Don Cook Installing Street Sign

When Steve Sanderson dropped by,  I put him to work helping me re-install the street sign that was knocked down last year.  I think I'll get some reflector tape and wrap it around the light poll. If they can't see the poll with a light on top of it, maybe this would help make it more visible.      4-22-2010

N6447Q visits Whiteplains after 3 years.avi

If you missed seeing N6447Q come in this morning around 9:15 AM, I made a short video and slide show. It has been three years and one month since N6447Q left Whiteplains on the back of a flat bed trailer. It now sports new tail feathers, new interior, and a few other items that Bill has added since he purchased her in Tennessee. Over lunch, at Flight Deck, we managed to do a lot of airplane talk. Thanks Bill, for letting me see her one more time. It was a real treat for me.
