The Adventures of Alf

Because Alf is our chapter's mascot, we wanted to ensure that he gets as much riding and visiting in as the rest of our group.  So, to that end, we decided to select different member of Chapter A to have him spend time and travel.  

The member will be chosen at random at our monthly meetings.  They will host Alf for that entire next month and take him with them on various trips as they go about their daily lives.  

Alf shoud have several photo ops during his visits and we'll show them here.  This way Alf will get to meet many people and make new friends.  Below is a few of the places he's been so far.

(Newest photos are on top)


During Spring Break, A.L.F. went to visit his Chapter A uncle Nathan Ensley. Just to clarify, it was A.L.F.'s vacation but uncle Nathan still had to work each day. Nathan took A.L.F. to work at Scott Powerline in McDonough off of Hwy 155. Nathan is a Service Tech that repairs huge power equipment that is used in the Power & Utility industries, along with tree cutting companies. If that wasn't bad enough, uncle Nathan worked when he got home too, planting new things in the front flower beds. So A.L.F. got to play in the dirt and get nasty dirty...which required that he take a bubble bath with his Rubber Duckie. Then he was humiliated at Easter time by having to dress up as an Easter Bunny and serve rainbow-colored pancakes topped with whipped topping and Easter M&M's. Now THAT part was good! A.L.F. also had a fun time visiting with his relatives at a 2021 Family Reunion, shopping for new summer clothes, and learning to take selfies. All too soon, the visit has come to an end and A.L.F. is ready for the April meeting. Who will take him home this month? And where will he get to go? What will he learn? Will he FINALLY be able to go for a RIDE? many questions for our furry little Alien!!!
