I'm back! in last month’s newsletter I had indicated moving to Colorado soon and expected to step back from club duties. Well, Jeff Heilman, our vp, decided to resign from the board at this time due to business reasons. This leaves me with a sense of responsibility to continue until we have the board issue settled.Our last cruise night was really a meaningful evening. We gathered enough cars to fill the main lot and street. The“9/11” ceremony capped off the evening and i believe was well received and brought one of our club activities to a high note. Dignitaries had good and brief speeches allowing the fire department presentation to take center stagewith the ladder truck serving as a flag pole. We were treated to a bag pipe group which so sets the tone to honor the lost lives in New York on 9-11. We had three Frankfort Junior high coronet players who ended the ceremony with echoed taps. What is "echoed"? Two players remained on stage to play and the third repeated from an unseen location. Well done young folks!
On to club business. Last month we had a lot going on and did not begin the process of nominating board members.Here is your opportunity to step up! Please consider people you think would serve the club well and enter their names at the next meeting. I you can't be there, please get the information to a member. From my vantage point as outgoing president and appreciating the hard work our lady members do, maybe it is time to see if they would consider a leadership board position. Our current plan calls for five (5) board members who decide the positions (ie: treasurer, Secretary, and Director at large).Our budget committee had a positive meeting identifying areas needing attention. Cost of mailing the newsletter loomed large and could be answered with a change in dues. Most of you belong to other clubs; how many provide you with the quality publication, quality cruise nights, quality garage tours and other activities for $15 a year? October is busy with a garage tour, "trunk or treat" day run by the police Department for local kids, all reasons you want to belong and have some fun. Fun - - -well, I am here to tell you we booked another great picnic! Thanks to all the cooks and to the Lilly’s for their hospitality!

We had 14 cars and trucks in the parade. Here Shelly pulls into the marshalling lot in the '60 Corvair, followed by Gene & Jackie in the 72 Nova SS
Over on Elwood, we had a display area both before and after the parade.Here's Rex's 55 Pontiac, Larry's Sunbeam Imp, and Gene's Nova SS.
After the parade we filled the street. Joe's Ford F1 gets ready to pull in next to Dave's Checker.
Dale's hot rod '33 Ford is next, with Bruce's 57 Pontiac Superior Ambulance behind.
The weather was perfect all day and the display generated alot of lookers.
Thanks to all our club members who participated!
