You’ll see a toolbar that says “all folder”; scroll down to “CRUISIN’ FRANKFORT”, click and you can watch the various episodes from your computer, etc. No need to have Frankfort channel 6 to view
How time flies when you are having fun. Our club has been blessed with great weather these past few weeks which has shown up in full cruise night parking spaces and many spectators. Our substitute broadcasters at the cruise nights have stepped up and added to the entertainment. We do need them to highlight the support of our advertisers and donators of the raffle prizes.
We had a special prize for the kid’s night of a pedal car donated by Auto Accessories whose business is located here in Frankfort. It was won by a FCC member who normally drives his gorgeous yellow Studebaker. I do know he was planning to give it away to a friend who is having a health challenge. Maybe that friend will have a young member of his family pedal in on a cruise night.
Do spend some time on our web site to keep up with activities. I am writing this just before Super Sunday. I am happy to report of the 25 spaces we have available - 23 are accounted for. Now hopefully the collection of food and cash go as expected. Our club does match the cash dollar for dollar up to $1,000. Last year the number was around $566, plus a Studebaker Pickup fully loaded with food.
I hope to have a new member application available once developed and approved by membership which will allow space for members to select an area they would like to volunteer some time. None of what you enjoy - be it newsletter, cruise night, garage tours, club picnic, Christmas party, etc. etc. - happens without quality time put in by volunteers. Maybe you feel you have "done your time", we call that experience. Many of us share time with other groups too, be it car, church, social or other areas of interests. Now - If you are at the cruise night - We still need members to sell raffle tickets which runs from 6 to 7:30. (Sooner if you sell us out of tickets!)
We need to see you at the meetings. More opinions and suggestions keep the organization moving in a positive direction. We need to keep this being fun in the enjoyment of wheeled toys. Ownership of a classic car is NOT a requirement to join and participate. Thanks for reading this far, it shows you care like I do.
FCC AT FRANKFORT FALL FEST
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!
