I came into work this morning and began working on my 2000 calender. That got me thinking about this year (almost past) and I remembered that the highlight event of my year happened EXACTLY six months ago today! That was the morning all us Mohican Gatherers were heading up to Chimney Rock Park for the day and o-o-o-o-hhh the exitement and anticipation of meeting Eric Schweig that evening. Do you guys remember how exciting that day was? But, best of all it was a day spent with SO MANY new friends that I'm so thankful to have! Thank you so much Rich and Elaine!!! All the things you two have done, mean more to so many people than you know! You both give so much ALL YEAR LONG!
And on Christmas Day, just count ahead six months, and we'll all be together again at our beloved Chimney Rock Park on June 25, 2000!!
It's been a tough fall for us here in Eastern NC, so much tragedy and sadness. But its been a good year too in so many ways. And Hey, our football team (here at East Carolina University,) had to leave town for a whole month due to the flooding, and still went 9-2 for the season. Our winningest season EVER!! We really enjoyed beating the Miami Hurricanes the week after the flood. These guys had an outstanding year and if you follow college football at all, they'll be playing in the inaugural Alabama-Bowl in Mobile on Dec. 23. GO PIRATES!!!
So, it's a little early - but please let me wish all of MohicanLand a very merry holiday season. And please know that my home fires burn a little warmer this year having met so many fine people, not only at the gathering, but on the board as well.
Warmest Wishes to All!!!
