With our May cruise rained-out, we really need our June 15th cruise to be rain-free. We did have 3 cars show up in May – one local, one from Butler and one from East Brady – thank you to those folks for showing up. On Wednesday, June 15th, we’ll start set-up between 2:30 PM and 3 PM, so please come early to help if you can. The trailer will be there between noon and 1 PM as this will end up the first one of the season and we’ll be a little rusty at set-up ‘speed’. If you have a red Kit-Han-Ne shirt, please wear it and remember goody bag items – we still need items.
Our day trip to Horseshoe Curve, the railroad museum and Boyer candy is Saturday, June 18th. We’ll meet at the West Kittanning Park-n-Ride at 8 AM. We will eat lunch over in the Altoona area. Please let me know if you plan to participate.
The Worthington Farmers’ Parade is Tuesday, June 21st. Parade cars are meeting at the American Legion lot in Worthington at 6:30 PM. We are invited to participate.
Sunday, June 26th is the Keystone Kruisers day trip to YMCA Camp Sherwin in Erie. We’ll meet at the Worthington Firehall at 8 AM. We stop for lunch on the way and after the cruise (on grass), we stop to eat at Cracker Barrel. Again, please let me know if you plan to travel along.
The Kittanning Crime Watch Cruise is Saturday, July 9th, in the park along Water Street. Our club is helping with the music and other tasks related to making this a successful event for Kittanning – if you can help with this cruise, please plan it in your schedule.

We voted recently to have our dash plaques and tee shirts made by a new vendor – JnJ Graphix of the greater Kittanning area. Their website is www.JnJGraphix.com. Remember to get your digital pictures to Bill for your club tee shirts. If you didn’t order a club tee shirt, just get in contact with myself or Bill and we’ll get you set up.

The fall banquet is Saturday, November 5th at the Kittanning Elks.
For the cruises this year, we’ll be selling glass-framed Cadet placemats from the 2008 Cruise Season for $10 each. The placemats were beautifully done with the Cadet Poor Boy, a ’55 Chevy and a ’58 Buick, and very nice color printing – a definite collector item for the garage wall.
Our next meeting, at Pizza “N” Stuff, 325 South Jefferson Street, Kittanning, will be Wednesday evening, June 22nd. Dinner at 6 PM, meeting at 7 PM. At the last meeting, Boyd Baker guessed the mystery piece of car junk that Jorn brought in – a grill from a 1967 Ford Galaxie. Boyd said that he recognized it right away – he had a 67 Galaxie back in the day.
