Oh the weather outside is frightful and our joints are not delightful since it is so dang cold – we feel old, we feel old, we feel old. Our May cruise is only 4 months away and George has been plowing snow at the Cadet in order to get ready for that cruise.
Good news! Thanks to your participation in the voting, the Cadet won Best Monthly Cruise and Best Hamburger in the 2014 Cruisin' Times Magazine 'Best of' competition. Jorn is one of the 'regulars' at the Cadet and he says that George is very appreciative of the recognition. Jorn and Ernie Luke were at the restaurant when George called and thanked John Shapiro, editor and owner of Cruisin' Times Magazine. John Shapiro said that he and his 'crew' will make the trip, probably in June, for a Cadet Cruise. They'll have their tent, tee shirts, magazines, etc. there. He runs a 55 Chevy sedan delivery to events. So, we're looking forward to Cruisin' Times Magazine's return to the Cadet.
You should be receiving your 2015 AACA membership cards in the mail. If you don't receive it, let me know. New members may take a little longer to receive theirs. We used to distribute them from the local club, but the AACA will no longer allow that – they mail them all out individually.
Marcia Williamson will be sending letters out to businesses and organizations in hopes of getting goody bag items. And, if you have any connections, please try to get bag items – it is a good advertising system for businesses and organizations to get their word out there.
Please remember to send information about yourself, or cruises that you've heard of, or anything of interest to Bill Johnson, or myself, to get the information on the website. Also, if your car is to be featured on a 2015 dash plaque, please get a good digital photo to Bill Johnson. If photo help is needed, we can get that going also – just need to know. Make sure that you check out the club website – www.kithannecarclub.com – for club-related information. Bill works hard on it and keeps it updated.
