Announcements

 

From the President's corner.....

Well our Thursday night work parties have started and we are cleaning lights, redoing display cases, moving cars in and out, etc. Thanks to all who have shown up. We always need help so consider giving us some time. As we always say, we are maintained by our volunteers.

Lobar is ready to paint inside so hopefully we will be moving into the new section soon. They have done a remarkable job and we thank Lobar for that.  

Don't forget the York Extravaganza Car Show at the York Expo Center on February 4th and 5th. It sounds like Scott Goebrechet has a great line up this year. We are planning to have 4 cars in our display, so stop by and say hello.

On February 11th the Weekend Warrior Luncheon and Quarter Mile Wars of the 60's and 70's will be the topic done by Darwin Doll from 1-3pm at EMMR.

March 11th will be staff orientation, so please come out for that at 10 am to 1 pm. Frank and Lynn will be doing that.

Again we are always in need of volunteers so come out and join us.


Till next time,
Nancy
