WELCOME BACK

We will be meeting at Truman Rec. Center, Monday, November 16th at 6:00 P.M.

It looks like The Villages is allowing us to start Club Meetings again. We are also permitted to have the Cruise-Ins at Spanish Springs. As shown above, we are required to Social Distance and Wear Masks at all times. This will probably be the new normal for our future meetings as well. Please bring your own drinks. No refreshments will be served. Truman Rec Center will only allow 60 people in our meeting room. If you are not one of the first 60 to arrive, you will be asked to leave. The agenda for this meeting is to formally elect our new 2021 officers.

The 2021 dues will not be accepted at this meeting but, will be taken at the January meeting on January 18, 2021. All members that have access to a computer, please go to NEW MEMBER APPLICATION on the header. Click on the new member application and print the form. Bring the filled out form to the January meeting with your 2021 dues. This will help the Board of Directors/Treasurer update all our member information. If you do not have access to a computer, we will have copies available at our meeting on Monday for everyone to take home and fill out.

We will NOT HAVE A MEETING IN DECEMBER. There will be no prorated dues starting in 2021. This will be the policy for all members. There will be no 50/50 drawing at this meeting. We will start back in January. We do have a few important items to be voted on by our members.

The Cruise-in will be on Saturday, November 21, 2020, Remember that we meet in the lot behind the bowing alley around 2:00 P.M. This Cruise-in is being sponsored by Operation Shoebox.  Please help this great organization by buying a 50/50 ticket.

if you have any questions, please feel free to call our President, Alan Carey – 717-451-3567

COVID19 UPDATES: We can say one thing for certain: This year will go down in HISTORY BOOKS. It looks like our Club won’t be meeting at Truman Rec. Center, in the near future. We have been told that it will be at least this Fall before the villages will allow any group events.

With all this being said, we have a couple off site events happening if anyone is interested in attending.

Old Town, www.myoldtownusa.com in Kissimmee, Florida, is beginning car shows on June 12th. You can go to their web site for more details. Just click on the link.

The Sonic Cruise-In is on the second Wednesday of each month from 5:00-7:00 PM.

The Chatum Glen Car Show that was posted for June 13th, HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19

There was a great article about Steve Haumann’s 1937 Ford and his matching golf cart. We Hope everyone saw it Last Friday and Sunday in the Villages Sun Newspaper. Congratulations, Steve. it sure has been a long time coming. There is also a great article in the June Villages magazine of Sam and Linda Bertone’s 1968 Camaro RS/SS. Congratulations you 2.

This is the end of our latest news, but if anything develops we will be sure to let you know.

UPDATES

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT, MERLIN DECUIR

Diane and I are praying all is well with each of you. We are doing great now that we’re getting somewhat back to reopening our Beautiful Villages. I don’t see the Villages opening until maybe July. We will probably not have any meetings until August or September. Hopefully, we can get back to having car shows in August

I’m going to keep looking at various car shows that normally schedule. I will keep everyone informed as soon as I know anything. I’m sure Alex Such will let us know when he has a car show at Sonic Drive-In

If anyone knows of any car shows being planned, let me know and it will be posted to the web and I will send everyone an email. Until then, looking forward to seeing everyone soon.
