Dear Fellow Members,
Our show season is coming to an end. We have just a few parades and the “new” Pumpkin Run, and that's
about it. Time to put the cars away and improve them for the next show season. It's also time to think
of what direction you'd like to see our club move. I'd like to see a nominating committee formed
for our upcoming officer elections, but I've not had any volunteers. So I think it will be up to
you the members to announce your intentions if you'd like to run for office.
In my two years (this time) I've heard from both sides about what's right and wrong with our club.
We have always been the “social” group as opposed to the “business” side, yet recently despite our
attempts, fewer and fewer members seem to come out. Many of our members are also members of the
Vintage Auto Museum and they seem to participate in many of their outings, many of which were started
by this club. I see the difference between the two, the museum is more of a business that needs financing,
while our club, as I stated, is social. I truly hope that the next group of officers can find a way to bring
back some interest in our club that goes beyond coffee and donuts once a month.
I'd also like to discuss again our position regarding how we handle our “Sunshine” gifts.
We recently had some VACOC Cards printed up, as what was meant to be a cost saving measure for the club.
While I still think these cards might be used under certain circumstances, I've received some
feedback that the cards might be considered cold. Please let me know what you think, at our meeting,
November 1st, in Seaside Heights.
Please keep in mind our Christmas Party, which Missy Ippolito has consented to run for us again.
Don't forget to check
information about local shows & events in our area.
Hope to see many of you at the meeting,
