Message from the President

As usual, August is a less busy month. Many members are traveling and enjoying visiting with family. We did some traveling as well, Shirley went to Arkansas with her 3 sisters for a family wedding, and I enjoyed a scenic drive up the coast through the volcanic rock at Lassen park. It was a great trip until I woke up one morning to a smoky sky and decided to cut my trip short.

Unfortunately we cancelled the annual Club beach trip because of the extreme heat wave and fires that Southern California has been experiencing.

Remember that the Hesperia Day parade is coming up on September 15th. We will be heading to Cracker Barrel in Victorville for lunch after the parade. This will be our International Model A Day event.

Our 57th annual Swap Meet is September 29th and 30th. We need all members to come out and help, even a little help is largely appreciated. Looking forward to a good turnout, I've received many calls and talked to several interested vendors. Last year the "Show Your Car" was enjoyed by all. We hope to see even more cars this year.

On October 6th we have been invited to bring our cars and participate in the "Past meets Present" event held at Mt. View Cemetery in San Bernardino. We had a great time last year as we caravanned around the cemetery stopping at several gravesites to listen about the history of the occupants. There were several famous people such as James Earp and Randy Rhoades, as well as founders of the city and local celebrities. This is a fun way to get ready for Halloween. 

Don't forget to wear your costumes to our October 9th General Meeting. 

Start thinking about getting involved as an Officer or Board Member. Nominations are held in October, elections in November and installation at our Christmas dinner in December.
