REVIEW OF APRIL MEETING
Meeting was called to order at 7:30 by president, Cliff Rumbaugh. All board members were present for the meeting. First order of business was the president's report. Cliff voiced his concerns for the financial aspect of the club. We are down about $2000 from where we were last year. The price of everything from stamps to insurance rates has been steadily increasing. Cruises are a good source of income, along with raffle tickets and club merchandise. We will be working on ideas and changes that will help revitalize the club and hopefully grow it over the current year. Last month's minutes were read by Jack McConnell. Motion to accept, was made by Doug Stiffler, and seconded by John Lominski. Glenn Koegler gave the treasurer's report. Motion to accept report was made by Ron Smith and seconded by Jim Bayer. Grover said he is still looking for a few volunteers for the Meridian Station cruises as well as a few others this year. Brenda said that she would organize the YMCA cruise if she can get a few members there to help out. East Brady has approached the club about Riverfest on July 21 st of this year. Dave Kamerer headed up this cruise last year and may be on again for this year. Moral of the story, can we just get some people to agree to work certain cruises. We don't expect you at every one, and it really isn't a lot of work and if you planned on going to the cruise anyways. Just show up early and hang out with a few other members. Any help will be greatly appreciated as always, every cruise makes a difference in the strength of our club. Details for club merchandise will given at next month's meeting. Another closing item was choosing a caterer for the Christmas Party. We are also going to look at dash plaque costs and see if there is any way to do better with the club insurance. Glenn Koegler answered the trivia question correctly and received an extra 50/50 ticket. There were no submissions for May car of the month. The big winner of Jack's 50/50 was Dave Harkins for $28. Winners of The BASMA Lotto were: Russell Shay for $50 (was not present) & Bruce Geibel for $29 (was not present/current), so we drew a
3 rd name, Todd Schultz for $29 (was not present).
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
Our sincere and deepest condolences go out to Randy Bowser for the passing of his beloved sister.
Safety - make sure when working on your automobile use proper technical manuals and all safety equipment required. Remember, safety is 24 hours a day and being dumb could cause injury or death.

Yeah, March another step closer to some workable temperatures.
Hoping to enjoy some more activities and events this year. Really
missing the sunshine and t-shirt time outside doing chores,
which are abundant when you get a new house. Really tired of
seeing all those shows and car auctions, then just having to
see the '59 sleeping in the garage, and then there's the '71
truck, yet another thing to tinker with. I think I have this
whole year packed with projects, not to mention a full year
of dirt track racing with the Malibu. Time to print, staple,
sticker and send out the newsletters, and get a hold of Chuck
to schedule the printer service, getting tired of the black
streak across the top of everything.
Till next time, cheers.

Hello, My name is Brandi Bankston. I am the Activity Director
at Saxony Health Center. May 13-17, 2013 is National Nursing
Home Week. During this week long celebration we plan to have
daily events to show our residents how much we care. My inquiry
is concerning the possibility of having a small/medium car show
here in our facility parking lot. We were hoping to bring back
the "good old days" by sharing vehicles from their era. With
so many of our residents, their short-term memory has escaped
them but the long-term memories of what "used-to-be" remains.
This is why we would like to extend an invitation to your group
to share in our celebration of the people who were once hard-working
citizens of the community. I realize this may be short notice
to organize an event of this type. Any communication on the
matter would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing
from a representative of BASMA.
Thank you and have a great day! Brandi Bankston Activity Director

Good morning, My husband is interested in selling his 1984 Hurst
