July 25, 2015, the first drizzly day in many weeks, but our Tall Club royalty wore sunny smiles this morning for the Military Service and Sacrifice Parade during the American Legion's commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Viet Nam War.
We have yet to formally coronate our new queen, but Sheryl Lutz made her first official appearance as Miss Tall Portland in the Sherwood Robin Hood Festival parade on July 18. Here is our slate of TALL royalty in the parade: Mr. Tall Portland Robert Hicks, Miss Tall International™ 2015 Erica Hand, and Miss Tall Portland Sheryl Lutz.
Details are coming together and the plan is to have a flyer ready by September 30. The biggest question is whether it will be the week before or the week after the July 4 holiday week, so pencil them both in on your social calendar to be safe!
The three lovely contestants for the crown of Miss Tall International® 2015--Erica Kathleen Hand, Miss Tall Portland (OR); Loretta Felvus, Miss Tall Rochester (NY); Lauren Bath, Miss Tall Sea 2 Sky Peeks (Vancouver, B.C.).
Eighteen Skyliners turned out in tents and RVs to enjoy the weekend. Spirits weren't dampened by a wee bit of rain on Friday, as temperatures were kept comfortable by a light overcast much of the weekend. Good company, good food around the campfire, and a good time was had by all!
All you can eat sushi. All you can eat sushi. YUM!!!
Actually, there were also dozens of tasty cooked foods to chose from at Makato's Japanese Buffet in Vancouver. A dozen of us were there to enjoy the food and company on May 12. We especially enjoyed meeting Gwen who was attending her first Skyliner event.
