"TUSCA WILLA HII _! _c; Nancy Roth -- Dial 725.5448 Vacation time is over and I have heard of some really interesting vacations. Bill and Jackie Molar, Chestnut Court, along with their three children, had a very nice trip. They camped from June 21 to July I at Pirate Land Camp Ground at Myrtle Beach, S.C. They traveled in a 24-foot trailer (ac, cording to Bill with tongue in cheek they really roughed it)..The trailer is equipped with all the comforts of home, T.V., microwave, air condi- tioner, etc. Their campsite was 100 feet from the Atlantic Ocean. Along for the trip was Jackie's dad, Percy Pearson. HIS main interest, ac- cording to Bill, was sitting on the beach and 'girl watching'. Also vacationing at the same time and place were Bill's brother, Paul, and wife, Barbara, and their four children. Bill said they spent most of their time relaxing, visiting the many seafood restaurants, places of interest, and taking the children to amusement parks. The children loved the Water Country amusement park. This is apparently a very family- oriented area and enjoyed by all the Molars. Richard and Mary Ann McClnre, Shenandoah Drive, spent their vaca- tion fishing in Quebec, Canada, at a place called Beltare. They stayed at moose hunter's cabins. Tbe only access to these cabins. was by boat. It was necessary to take all the supplies they would need for the duration of their stay because they didn't have the luxury of running to the Handi-Stop for something they might run out of. They fished for Walleyes and Pikes and I understand they ate all they caught. Matthew Moler went along on this trip with the McClures. Quite an ex- perience for a young man. My neighbor, May Collins, wet north and south. She took a bus trip to New England for a few days and a plane trip to visit friends in Florida for several days. Steve and Bridget Rash spent a week at Myrtle Beach, S.C. Linda Work, another neighbor, spent most of the summer with her mother in Fairmont. I think she took some courses at WVU at that time. Mary Adams, another neighbor, had a busy summer visiting relatives and taking trips for Eastern Star. Barb and A1 Hooper spent a lot of t'ne in their beloved Maine home this summer. Don't know that it was exact- ly a vacation, They spent most of the time moving and getting settled in their new home in Maine From the pictures Barb brought back, their new home looks deeeevine.
