Escapees RV Club has an adult day care facility in Livingston, Texas for Continuing Assistance for Retire Escapees. Being a non-profit organization many Escapee function incorporate a fundraiser for C.A.R.E. During our Class of 2007 Reunion we had an auction on Friday. We raised $1,600, which isn’t bad for having 20 rigs and 38 people in attendance!
It was very lively betting going on with a couple of husbands and wives betting against each other by mistake, and somebody saying “Jim Tidball bid $10” when he hadn’t even opened his mouth. But it was all for a good cause so there was a lot of laughter floating around.
After the auction we dispersed for half and hour and reassembled for a chili cook-off with corn bread and desserts Jim Chapman used a remaining pork butt and cooked it Cajun style, like it learned at Erath at the Museum Cafe. Oh, my, did it come out good!!!.

We ended the evening with a fire “spiked” with Flame Rainbow sticks giving it quite an array of different colors. It was a terrific day with wonderful weather, food, fun, laughter and friends. What more could you ask for? Nothing…..
Remember, you are loved.
