Rick reached out to me about an idea for a plaque. Rick wants to offer his etching skills to make a plaque for us. " Thanks Rick". Hell of a guy!
Here is what Rick came up with. Let's give Luann an appreciation plaque.
I think it's a great idea and should look very nice. Rick plans to make a classic bow Logo and etch in some text on a separate piece of metal. I will make the wooden backer out of mahogany & varnish and cut in a nice little detail around the edges.
Rick needs to move fast on this as he has some free time next week.
But what we need and some suggestions is what do we want to say on the plaque??? We are hoping we can come up with something by the end of The weekend.
I am not good with words so a little help please.
This will be an appreciation plaque, So Google that, and let's get some nice thoughtful words together for Luann.

One of the re-popped FC logos would make a nice center-of-attention for a plaque.
We could ask her permission for us to bring some card tables and folding (campfireside) chairs and move dinner out onto the lawn in front of the porch. Lots of great space, shady tree, but not so far that we can't exchange the customary trading of pleasant insults........
