Many of you have attended one or more of the Western Region Rallies. You are then probably familiar with Montgomery E. LaPhant (aka Monty). For those who don't know, Monty is the "official white elephant" of the traditional White Elephant Exchange event.
Monty cruises round the country with a MOC member and shares his experiences. He is actually on FaceBook (he is into social media) with his own page and photo albums (with running commentary). https://www.facebook.com/profile.php...202488&fref=nf
Unfortunately, because he signed up with his real age, he is too young for a "public" page (FB wants to protect the kiddies from the weirdos out there on FB) and you have to be a "friend" or a "friend of a friend" to see his pictures. But he has been good about accepting "Friend" requests.
The National Spring Rally is when he used to move to a new caretaker. With the demise of that rally, he didn't move last year. This year it is rumored he will make an appearance at the White Elephant Exchange on Tuesday night at Seven Feathers trying to hook up with a new set of foster parents. Keep your eyes open for him as he is very social and tries to make all the food and drink activities.
