Although it was not in the news, most club members know, by now, that members Ernie and Dawnisie Luke's garage and 1962 Chevy Impala burned up in a massive fire, Wednesday night, August 31, 2016. During the fire, Dawnisie was also hurt and ended up at the Indiana hospital. The garage and car were a total loss, and cleanup continues. Please keep Ernie and Dawnisie in your thoughts and prayers.
The August Cadet Cruise was a huge success – great weather and more than 100 cars. The hot dog cart sold out and we celebrated Jim Schultze's 50 year membership in the AACA and the local region. Jim received a 50 year pin and a 'large' dash plaque, on wood, of him posing with his 1938 Packard a while back.
We had 20 members and guests attend the club picnic at Crooked Creek State Park, Constitution pavilion, on Saturday, September 10th. We had great weather, lots of food and many door prizes.
Our final Cadet Cruise of the season will be on Wednesday, September 21, 2016. Setup at 2PM. If you can help, setup, work in-between, teardown, or all jobs, please show up and do so. Many hands make the work a lot easier for all. With good weather, we know we'll be swamped for this last cruise of the season. If rain, then you know, we switch meeting night with cruise night and that's Wednesday the 21st and Wednesday the 28th. Watch the weather – I'll make the decision by noon of cruise day the 21st.
At our upcoming Wednesday, September 28th club meeting at Cabin Greens Golf Course, we will be asking for members interested in the offices of president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. Please let me know if you are interested in any of these positions and we'll get your name on the ballot. Bobbi Williamson, current treasurer, and Marcia Williamson, current secretary, are both stepping down in their respective jobs. We do elect officers in the October club meeting – Wednesday, October 26th, 2016, at Cabin Greens.
All $10 Kit-Han-Ne dues are due to Bobbi Williamson, club treasurer, by November 15th. Bobbi Williamson's address is 302 Cherry Tree Lane, Kittanning, Pa, 16201. Anyone not current in their local dues will not have their national AACA membership renewed by the Kit-Han-Ne Region.
Saturday, October 15th, 2016, is the trip to Horseshoe Curve & Railroad Museum. Dinner will be at the Cracker barrel in Altoona. We will depart the McDonald's Park and Ride at 9AM – please, if you're planning to participate, let me know – it helps us plan the event for the best results.
Saturday, November 12, 2016, will be the fall banquet at the Cabin Greens Golf course dining room. More information coming, yet, on that event.
Our next club meeting will be at Cabin Greens Golf Course on Wednesday, September 28th. Dinner at 6PM and meeting at 7PM. See you there!
