ALL CLUB MEMBERS – UPDATE

Dear Members,

Since we did not have a meeting in February due to illness, we weren’t able to set up a pot-luck dinner for the March meeting.  Therefore, we have decided to have Pizza from NYPD and salad for the March 20th monthly meeting.                                                                        We will need a head count so that we can place an accurate order. THE CUT OFF DATE FOR A HEAD COUNT IS MARCH 15, 2023.                                              Please email Pam Hendrickson at phendr6319@aol.com or call her cell at 352-638-3290.  

Ken Lohr’s February Drive and Dine did not get a good turnout.  When our members take the time to set up a luncheon, please make an effort to attend.                                                                                                      Bob Schlenk is setting up a Drive and Dine for  March.  We will be diving to Lena’s Seafood, in Ocala with a beautiful backroads cruise. The Time and meeting place will be announced as it gets closer to the date.  Please contact Bob direct @rschlenk59@gmail.com or 352-454-3133.

THE 75TH Anniversary of the Ocala Drive-In scheduled for March 11, is cancelled due to a Family illness.  A new date has not been announced at this time.

March 18th,  Cruise in Spanish Springs.

Saturday,  April 15 @ Spanish Springs.  The Villages Vintage Car Club is the featured car club.  They would like a head count ASAP.  Please call Pam if you plan to attend.

April 29,  our club will be part of the Brownwood Paddock Square Car Club Showcase.  We are allowed 24 cars around the square. The first 24 will be confirmed.  An alternate list will be started in case someone is unable to attend.

We will discuss the Lake Sumter “Night on the Square” at our March meeting.  

If we do not get a good turnout at the meeting or any of these events, we will assume there is little interest in keeping the club alive and we will then,  donate the monies in the checking account to charity.  As you know, JoAnn, Bonnie & Pam are trying to keep our club alive.  We need all your help in order for this club to survive. 

ATTENTION ALL CLUB MEMBERS

DUE TO UNEXPECTED HEALTH ISSUES, THE FEBRUARY 13, MEETING AT TRUMAN REC CENTER IS CANCELLED. !!!!!!

REVAMPING OF OUR VILLAGES VINTAGE CAR CLUB

As a club, We have been asking for months to have our members volunteer to take over the offices of President, VicePresident, Secretary and Treasurer.  There has been zero interest.   After much discussion, we have made the decision to keep our club going and not close it.  We already have the Truman Rec center,  the website and members that are willing and able to continue to attend our meetings and functions. This has resulted in a new format for our club. We are now going to be THE VILLAGES VINTAGE CAR AND SOCIAL CLUB. We are no longer a 501c.  There will be no dues. There will be a 50/50 drawing at our meetings to help offset the cost of refreshments.   We have members that have volunteered  for leadership rolls.  PAM HENDRICKSON, JOANNE HORNE & BONNIE WHITE.  Bonnie White has agreed to be the Treasurer and Web Master.   We are trying to have activities that will appeal to Car enthusiasts and wives or significant others.  We would love for all current members to invite friends to join in the fun and to suggest activities for the future.

NOW UPDATES OF PRESENT AND NEAR FUTURE PLANS.

Thanks to all that attended the first meeting of this year on Monday, January 16.  We had 49 in attendance and we now have 4 new members and 1 rejoin.  Please welcome Don Bisant, Tim & Sally Brazil, Lou Ehrenhalt, Check Zieman, Rick & Kathy Welsh.   We hope you will continue to show your support and enjoy the activities.   Please let us know who will be attending the February Valentines Day meeting.  We need a head count for this meeting.                                     Please call Pam  352-638-3290.

Alan Carey has been in touch with the organizers of the Field of Dreams Car Show in Brooksville on November 19th/20th.  If there is anyone interested in going as a group, let Alan Carey  know ASAP.  They will give us an area to park together as a club.  Alans  number is 717-451-3567.

We are doing another drive and dine  on Monday,  November 14th.  It is being hosted by club member Kenny Lohr.  Please call him direct at 631-774-6931,    It will be at Combat Cafe,  831 Central Avenue, Umitilla.  We are meeting at Rohan Rec Center at 10:45.  Please call ASAP so Kenny has a head county.

HAPPY FALL EVERYONE

 

WELCOME TO FALL

On Monday, September 19, 2022,  The Vintage Car Club met at Truman Recretation Center.  We had been off for the summer due to members traveling and so on.  Thanks to everyone that joined us.

We want to thank our new Secretary,  Larry Donnelly,  for volunteering to take on this position.   The position of Secretary has been empty for several months.  Great to have you on board, Larry.

Our Club needs its members to step up and take on the responsibilities of  President, Vice President and Treasurer. The currect President, Alan Carey, Vice President, Walt Malcomb and Treasurer, Tom Bradley will not be staying in their current positions for another term.    As was discussed at our Monday meeting,  we will not be accepting any dues for 2023 until we fill our vacating board.  We must fill these three positions in order for our club to continue.    So, please, all club members, WE NEED YOUR VOICE TO BE HEARD.   

UPCOMING EVENTS:

OCTOBER 14, Cruise in at Spanish Springs

OCTOBER 17,  MEETING -** CHANGE OF LOCATION**  The club will meet at Mulberry Grove Rec Center and we will depart as a club at 4:30 PM for a 15 minute drive to the County Line BBQ.   We will hold our meeting and have dinner there.   Directions- Go east on Rt-42 and then turn right on Rt-25 going  south about 1/2 mile to the restaurant on the right.  Send an email to Hal Morrision at halmorrison@outlook.com with the names of those planning to attend by October 10, so we can give the restaurant a count.  

Hoping for a great turn out
