Oh my what a day in Fort Payne, Alabama on July 23rd. We had a large crowd totaling 52. Everyone expressed they had a good time, an sure was glad it was inside in the Air Conditioning. The Cook Castle was impressive & the hosts & hostess were so nice to us, including Jeff Cook’s wife Lisa & his mother Betty. Many thanks to a team that pulled it all together. Brenda Keeton did the research finding out the location, dates available, & what the cost included. Also, she provided the pictures included in this issue of the newsletter. Hal & Freida Wagenblast did the promoting getting the number of participation increased, we needed a mimumn of (40) for the Castle to commit to our visit. Charles Zimmerman put the driving route together, & I did the dirty work playing the role of money collector. Thank you all for making it happen. We can place another day in our memory chest of fun & fellowship for 2016.
The next big thing on the calendar is our Car Show on August 27th at River Front Parkway a combination of work & play. Our efforts go toward five causes to improve the lives of others. Get involved, get those goodie bag items together & request those door prizes & get them to Wayne, or deliver them to his work location. Get the word out to all friends, neighbors, & all other car clubs, let try & exceed any expectations we might have. Wayne McCoy will bring registration forms to the August 13th meeting, so be sure to make your commitment by completing an early registration form, the cost is only $15.00. Turn your registration into Ernie Antes. We start early & leave early due to the heat on the day of the show.
