Cinzetti's Restaurant

January 2009

We had a very good crowd for our January get-together at Cinzetti's restaurant in Northglen. Almost all of our rigs were represented. This is a great place to have a luncheon, the food is always very good and there is a wide selection of food. In some, cases the food is rather unusual which makes the meal even more interesting.

This was our first meeting for the new year and so a lot of plans were discussed, firmed up, or changed.




Al and Allene prepare the table favours for our luncheon.

Apple Creek
February 2009

Apple Creek Restaurant is a regular stop for the Aspen Leaves Chapter. It is one of our favorites at the beginning of the year before the group starts camping. The food has always been very good and this year was no different. Most of the rigs were represented, as they were in January.





It's hard to decide what to order to eat, everything is so good, but it looks like Fran has made her choice.

The Armadillo

The Armadillo is a regular stop for our group. The restaurant always does a nice job arranging a private buffet for the Aspen Leaves Chapter.

Riverview RV Park
May 15-17



In May the chapter traveled to Riverview RV Campground just west of Loveland. This is another of the group's favorite sites. In previous years the temperatures have been a little high, but not this year. The conditions were just about perfect the entire weekend.

One of activities Saturday evening was to gather around the campfire with friends and roast marshmallows. Some of us did a better job than others.

Later that evening, Jim read a number of cowboy poems that everyone seemed to enjoy.



Ron and Sheryl enjoy some quality family time next to the river. Most of the Aspen Leaves sites were located next to the river. It is very scenic and makings the evening sleep really tranquil.



Jim spent time Saturday evening to read some cowboy poetry. Everyone seemed to especially enjoy the poem about an Army mule.






Roasting marshmallows over the campfire, what fun.




Clearly, Dave is an expert "roaster".

Christmas Dinner



White Fence Farms
Entrance


Annual Christmas Dinner

The White Fence Farms restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and Renee and Sheryl added to the scene by setting up a very nice dinner area.

Sheryl and Ron presented a special tribute to servicemen again this year complete with a gift unit coin presented to each Aspen Leaves member who is a veteran.

Each member attending also received a very special tree ornament that was made by Sheryl's daughter.

The food was terrific as usual and every one seemed to have a great time.



Sheryl and Renee
Good Job!



Gifts for the raffle to benefit Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pets



Renee and Sheryl did a great job with the table settings. Each Aspen Leave member received a personal fruit pie and some chocolates.
