revenue I don't know how they do it.

their hospitality. We averaged 20 cars a night and had 59 cars show

Doll and Grace Bell resign from their positions and I want to thank
them for their service to EMMR. We also lost our most popular tour

Now on to the
new year. First I want to thank the many volunteers who gave many
hours of their time for making the museum what it is today. We
couldn't do it without you. And to all of you that visited us and
gave contributions we can't thank you enough.
Thursday night work parties are in full swing and Lynn always has
plenty to do, the man and his mind never slow down! We have some

We will be
doing all the race tracks with our vintage cars, with one change. We
will ask all vintage car owners that do track time to donate a once
a year $50.00 donation to EMMR as your contribution to the museum
for the opportunity to run your cars. For multiple car owners it
will be $10.00 for each additional car. You will receive a sticker
and must show it at each track (this does not apply to photo ops at
Williams Grove). Also Kutztown has been added to the schedule with
John Marks as contact person.
Open House will be April 6-7, 2019. Saturday there will be a drag
racing roundtable with Jeff Golden and Sunday we will honor Greg
Hodnett. An auction will be held with half of the proceeds going to
Sherry Hodnett. This will be a great afternoon.
The fish fry
will be May 5th, the fair June 28/30th, the convention August 23,
24, 25 and the Lobitz Party will be November 3rd. Winter open house
will be December 7 and 8th. Please support these events. There is
also a yard sale, street rod cars shows, tractor pulls, work parties
and much more!
2019 is going to be a GREAT year!!
to the yellow schedule for these events.
We have lots
of new cars and exhibits at the museum so we hope to see you there
and again I want to thank you for your support. We are always
looking for new volunteers. In closing a rich man buying you
something doesn't mean anything but a busy man giving you his time
