Happy New Year 2021.
March is the month that we hold our annual elections. Officers are not allowed to serve more than a 3 year term so I will be transitioning out of office and a new President will be elected. In the few short years, while I was President, we were able to see a return of ERT to TROD. We were able to make updates to our by-laws, we eliminated the TROD storage and the $820 annual storage fee that went with it. We were able to expand our membership, our bank account and our parade participation. We saw the close of the Wheaton Bowl and we identified new locations to have our meetings. We were able to participate in activities with FTEA and the Wayne-DuPage Hunt. The St James play date with Vicki Weyer and her girls, was a real hit and 24 TROD members learned to drive Little Honey in 2019. We have also maintained a good working relationship with the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, thank you Connie Schmidt! We were so happy to be part of the opening of St James indoor arena, to the public. This is where we had an ERT training for the Warrenville Fire Department. in October 2019. It was very successful, thank you Vicki Weyer and all the TROD volunteers who made that event possible. We have managed to survive the covid 19 pandemic, which is loosening its grip on all of mankind. We hope to be back to a "new normal" soon. Happy trails to all, in 2021!
