Our March meeting went very well with 16 members in attendance. We finished out 2013 with the audit performed by Joe and Mary Ethel Miller – thank you Joe and Mary Ethel – and we headed into 2014.
Our first Cadet cruise is Wednesday, May 21, with Valerie Smeltzer's Mustang on the dash plaque. We voted to rope off a special section, each month, for the featured dash plaque car. So, if your car is the featured car for a cruise, please try to have your car at the Cadet by 4 PM – thank you. The June featured car will be Joey Zambotti's car – perhaps the El Camino?
Please remember, we need goody bag items if you have some connections. Giveaways can be good advertising materials for local businesses.
The next time you go out to eat in one of the local restaurants, check out your place mats – George Morda placed an ad with our car club and cruises information on it. It will appear as a smaller version of our flier. Thank you, George!
The August 20th cruise will be our annual charity cruise, so please think of a charity that you might like the club to sponsor for this event. The other 'charity' cruise that we'll do is the Kalmar Motor Sales cruise – that one is for Relay for Life.
In the last few months, we've had several members in the hospital – both Bobbi and Roy Williamson, Tom Higginson, Boyd Baker, Morgan Smith and Pauline Schultze. Pauline is currently in the hospital. Also, Dave Brown had been ill for a few months, but the latest report is that he is doing well. Good health to all of you and hope to see you all soon.
We are still working on day trips and an over-nighter if you want one. Let me know your ideas. Remember, Butler Old Stone House Region AACA has a road rally and car cruise – Saturday, August 23rd, 9 AM, Alameda Park starting point. This is an all-day event that includes a box lunch. Fees are - car plus driver $20, each additional person in the car $6. Must have 2 per car – driver and navigator.
The Keystone Kruisers are adding an event this year – the Ice Cream Poker Run, Saturday, August 16, starting at 4PM. More information to come as the event is finalized.
This year's fall banquet will be November 8th, but we've moved it to Cabin Greens Golf Course dining room. More information to come in later mailings.
Our next meeting will be Wednesday, April 23 at Cabin Greens Golf Course dining room. Dinner at 6 PM, meeting at 7 PM. Please try to attend - it is the members that approve club plans.
