Rich was also asking for volunteers to work at the car show, sponsoring trophies, raffle and silent

auction items for 100 goody bags. If you have questions, please email Rich. He is making some changes

to the trophy/plaques this year so when there are trophies left from previous years they can be used by

placing a plate instead of the trophy. A suggestion was made to change from the green Staff shirts to a

Safety Vest for the car show and other events.

The club continues to grow; there are many activities to participate in. Before meetings several
