Bob and Jean Kimmel are
honoring their son Billy with a plaque that
is displayed in the lobby at EMMR. Billy Kimmel passed away
after a racing accident at Williams Grove
Speedway in 2007. You can have your name
added to the plaque for a donation of
$125.00 or $500.00. All donations will go to
EMMR. This is similar to the Gary Wolford
plaque that hangs in our second level of the
museum. Please help us honor Billy. Thank
Nancy Miller, President
From the President's corner.....
is hard to believe the past year has come and gone so fast but it
was a good year for the museum. First to all the volunteers who make
the museum run and to all of you who visited us this year, we
couldn't do it without any of you. Thank you!!
The past year saw us do roundtables, car shows, race car
exhibitions, bake sales, and auctions. The Gary Wolford's Fish Fry
went well but next year it will be renamed Gary Wolford and Silver
Spring Reunion. Due to insurance purposes there will no longer be
a blindfold race, but Silver Spring Cars are invited to put on a car
show with track time.
The fair was hampered by insurance coverage issues last year but went
well anyway. Thanks to Amy Kelly for handling that event. The fair
for 2018 will be held June 23rd, 24th and 25th.
Larry Garland's Jalopy Show went very well again this year. Next
year in 2018, it will have to be held at Lincoln Speedway since his
show has outgrown Latimore Valley Fairgrounds.
The vintage cars traveled to 12 different tracks last year and I
want to thank all of the tracks for inviting us to put our cars on
display with track time at their tracks and for the two admission
tickets they give each car. A special thank you to Kathy Hughes for
our photo-ops at Williams Grove and something most of you don't
know, they donated half of the 50/50 to museum the night we were
Carol Weaver put on two car events so look forward to those same
events again next year.
Darwin Doll did a great job with his events so can't wait to see
what he does in 2018.
Another convention is in the books and it went very well again this
past year. Next year in 2018, the convention will be on August 24th,
25th and 26th with track time at Williams Grove on the Friday, August
24th. Gary Wolford will be honored and Ruth and Clarence Snavely
will be the Grand Marshals.
Don Robinson and Kolten Gouse had another great auction at the
National Open. Don does a great job with all the auctions we have.
want to thank Dave Hare and Alan Kreitzer for emceeing our auctions
and roundtables. It was good to see Stan Lobitz at his event
that was held at the museum this year and will be into the
Our Open House and roundtables were very well attended and we look
forward to seeing you again next year.
Now to some new news. One of the first things is we have extended
our fall closing time to include November and the Holiday Open House
on Dec. 1st and 2nd. As you know we opened the new Charlie Rasp
addition to the museum and have been working to put the new space to
good use. There will be 10/12 new cars on display along with the
Flemington N.J. group that has now become part on our museum. One of
our outside block sales went to Mario Andretti (thank you Jimmy
McGuire). The inside block sales will be discontinued as we are out
of space on the inside wall.
Again thanks to all our volunteers and visitors and remember good
deeds are not done by walking into church, they are done when you
walk out and help others.
Till next time,
