Holiday Thoughts from the President!

December 5, 2013 2013 MinutesUncategorized

Well it’s that time of year again and the Holiday Season is upon us! Racers and race fans across the country are hard at work making their Christmas list of items for Santa to bring. A new chassis, new engine, new body and season race tickets to their favorite race tracks. I hope everyone gets all they ask for on their lists. During this time of year we need to stop and remember those that we lost this season and to give thanks to those who have given their life to protect us so we can enjoy our beloved sport of auto racing. So when you see those men & women you see in the military take the time and say Thank You for all they do. “May the Lord Bless & Keep Us All” throughout this holiday season!

bluhmwebhengwebfishelwebThose members who attended our November general meeting had an outstanding time. Ron & Patty Bluhm who run the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum informed our members on how the museum got its start as a Hudson Dealership and about all the cars and automotive items they have on hand. They have many GM displays and they even have a movie prop Tucker on hand along with Kasier’s & Corvair’s. Then Sandy Heng gave us an update on her new book coming out soon called “SHAKEN”.
