Letter from the President
October 2012

As we move into fall, we have many events left on the club agenda.

Sunday, October 14th, is the visit to Ed Brown’s garage near Lower Burrell. We’ll meet at the Franklin Village Park & Ride at 1:15PM, and depart promptly at 1:30PM. Plan is to be at Ed’s by 2PM. After the tour, we’ll dine at Villa Blanco in Lower Burrell. I need a headcount by October 10th if you plan to attend this event.

Saturday, October 20th is the fall road trip to the 4 covered bridges in Indiana County, including a stop at Yarnick’s Farm Market by the Thomas Covered Bridge. This is a 60 mile drive covering about 2 hours, plus 2 hours on ‘non-drive time’ – sightseeing, pictures, chatting, shopping and so forth. The road trip ends at Rockville United Lutheran Church, Rockville, Armstrong County, for a 2PM late lunch/early dinner. It is their fall festival day with homemade soups, sandwiches, pies and ice cream. We’ll meet at the Cadet between 9AM and 10AM – early for those who want breakfast at the Cadet or ‘just-in-time’ for 10AM prompt departure.

Wednesday, October 24th, for our final club meeting of 2012 at the Cabin Greens Golf Course dining room, 6PM dinner, 7PM meeting. At this meeting, we’ll be voting for the 2013 officers as well as other club business. The slate of 2013 officer candidates are:

  • Bobbi Jensen – president
  • Boyd Baker – vice president
  • Bobbi Williamson – treasurer,
  • Mark Crissman – Secretary
  • Bill Johnson – webmaster
  • Jorn Jensen – Legislative Liason

    Saturday and Sunday, October 26 & 27 is the Riverside Inn weekend. The 26th is the murder mystery and the 27th is the Medival Feast and Halloween party. You can choose one or the other day, or both days. The cost for one night is $209 and two nights is $399. This is a couples cost and it includes your room, dinner and the show, and breakfast. Saturday, you can spend time in Cambridge Springs (some antique shops) or Erie. Call 1-800-956-9490 for reservations and let them know you’re with the Kit-Han-Ne Car club group under the name Bobbi Jensen. Due to a wedding party and highly popular events that weekend, we will be on the third floor and there are no elevators in the old hotel, so there will be a fair amount of stair-climbing exercise. Sorry for that inconvenience.

    Our fall banquet is Saturday, November 3rd at the Kittanning Elks. Open bar from 5:30PM to 6:30PM. Dinner will be served at 6:30PM. The menu is turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, noodles, vegetable, coleslaw, rolls & butter, coffee, tea and cake. The cost is $12 adults, $6 for children under 6. You are all welcome to invite family and friends – we have the entire dining room. I do need a headcount by Friday, October 26th so that the Elks kitchen can have the proper amount of food ordered for preparation. You can pay treasurer Bobbi Williamson now (send check to her home – see address below), pay her at a scheduled event or pay her at the banquet.

    For the fall banquet, please bring some pictures in an envelope, please – baby pictures of yourselves, childhood pictures, an old picture of yourself and your spouse when you were dating, and pictures of your first car(s). We’ll ‘post’ them at the banquet and let the guessing begin – we’ll see how well we can guess identities.

    Remember that all $10 Kit-Han-Ne club local dues are due to Bobbi Williamson by November 15th so that you are eligible to have your national AACA dues ‘covered’ for 2013. Get your $10 paid! Please make your check payable to: Kit-Han-Ne Region, AACA.

    Bobbi Williamson’s address:

    Again, our Wednesday, October 24th meeting will be at Cabin Greens Golf Course – 361 Ford City Road – a little south of Cadogan and just beyond McVille toward Freeport.
