Well, we are off to a very soggy start in our car show season. Many of you tried to attend the shows around but had to cancel due to the rain. Hopefully, this rain will come to some kind of slow down and give us some sunshine. The humidity is hampering me from doing some media blasting on my 56 and really delaying me from making any progress on the car. I am buying the parts I need but only storing them for right now.
Our meeting at Casa Garcia’s was well attended by a few members who we haven’t seen in awhile came out. The CTCCC Membership Year pins were passed out to those who attended but we still have a few more to give out. Hopefully, at the March meeting, this will be accomplished. At the meeting, it was brought up that the Club honor Jim Sellstrom, who has been a very long member in good standing and is unable to attend any of the Club functions, a lifetime membership. This was approved and passed by the membership. Jim, we are very proud of you as a member and a friend. Our parking was very limited due to the facelift that the shopping center was getting. Hopefully, the next time we are there we will have our front row parking back. Actually, the owners and employees of Casa Garcia’s were very disappointed that we were not able to show off our cars.
As Kay brought up at the meeting, Cindi Lambert is our wellness contact to report to in the event of an illness of our members. Kay asked that you place Cindi’s phone contact into your cell phones for this purpose.
Kay being the Club Treasurer, also mentioned that only a few members have not sent in the CTCCC Dues yet for 2018. Dues are $25 and are due this month. If you haven’t paid this will be your last newsletter. Just a note, some members have already pay a few months in advance to prevent from being late. So please send in your 2018 dues to Kay and make the check out to CTCCC. We don’t want to lose you as a member. You are important to us.
Our next meeting will be on Sunday, March 18th. at the Lien’s home in Georgetown. There should be directions to this in this newsletter. It will be once again a potluck, so check with Janie as to what you might bring for all to enjoy.
Get your car out and play with it…
I want to thank all of you members who attended our Club meeting last month. I understand that a few of you could not make it for various reasons, but the turnout was great. The slate of officers last year discussed and agreed on our year awards for all members. After a long and frustrating ordeal with the company, the pins arrived in time for the January meeting. The pins acknowledge many years of dedication to our Club in 5 year increments. It was impressive to show the length of years that many members have supported our CTCCC. Those of you who were not at the meeting will hopefully be at the Feb. meeting and receive yours. Thank you all for supporting and being a crucial part of the CTCCC.
Our plans are in place for many activities during this coming year. There are a number of events taking place and if you can’t make them all you will definitely have fun in the ones that you can attend. I sent out a Activity Schedule already and had to make one correction in it. We will try to keep the schedule up to date. Hopefully you will make a printed copy of it and keep it handy to refer to and not miss an activity.
Once again Mary has planned a Roaring Fork luncheon for us and it looks like Mary has a nice list of those attending. I’m looking forward to seeing you there. Hopefully we will have many classic cars at this event. Let’s try to keep them all parked together.
At our Feb. meeting, I asked Kristen Boutwell from Longhorn Promotions to attend and tell you about their business. They are the original Embroidery company that we used to have our shirts, jackets and caps made for over 25 years they still do some work for us. If you have the Official selected Club garments, Polo shirts in Red, White or Blue, Denim Shirts long or short sleeved, Club light weight jacket in Dark Blue or Black or caps in Red, White or Blue, bring them to the meeting and Kristen will take them to have the embroidery work applied. I will pick them up when they are ready. It is always less expensive when a large order is sent in.
Thank you and we will see you at the Casa Garcia’s on February 15ths. meeting..
