We attended the AACA Fall Meet at Hershey and it was probably the best weather week ever for that event. Gasoline was relatively inexpensive ($2.19/gal out that way), but there were many empty spaces. Not sure why. The ride out and back was beautiful – leaves were so colorful. We always go the route 22 way and stop at mom and pop diners. This year, it was Topp's Diner, near the Swigart Auto Museum. Jim Schultze and Donna Kovar also attended and we had a Kit-Han-Ne Region courtesy tent between our 'storefronts' – we had a table and chairs and we had many visitors sit a while and rest.
Saturday, October 17th, is our 'roundabout' cruise to the Rockville church Fall Festival. We'll travel east, on 422, to Yarnick's Farm Market just beyond Shelocta and then we'll return on 422 to Cherry Run and up over the hill to Rockville church. All roads are paved or 'surfaced' – no dirt roads to run. We meet at the Cadet before noon and depart promptly at noon and we'll try to get to the church during the afternoon, somewhere between lunch and dinnertime – guessing around 3PM. The church has homemade soups, hot sandwiches, pies and ice cream. You can also buy 'food-to-go', even soup in mason jars – all that the members ask is that you return the jars at some point – I can handle that as the collection person for the club. It is supposed to be a cold weekend, so bundle up, come along and enjoy some good hot soup and sandwiches. Hope to see you there.
