goes out to the Errera's for their DJ service for this cruise.

Lowellville Ohio cruise every Monday, Kings restaurant on 224
in New Castle every Friday, September 3rd BASMA cruise at the
Lyndora American Legion, and Back to the 50's on Labor Day weekend.
A discussion of having a multi club picnic at Moraine not feasible
at this time, maybe ok for next year. Not knowing how many people
we are allowed to have at an outside function? We are asked
to wear masks at all times except when swimming. Also social
distancing would be in force at all times. T spoke with the
president of the Rapid Tappets and he has agreed to post pone
any picnic till next year. Joe Mudrick sold some new shirts
at the Legion cruise; he is going to order more shirts and sweatshirts.
If you would like, contact Joe for your needs. Our raffle tickets
are almost sold out. Please get your tickets to Dewy, sold or
not. Every ticket counts. Don Hayes won 50 50 for $15.
Meeting adjourned by 8:00. Vice President, Dave Bowen
NEWSLETTER Just in case you thought your August newsletter was
lost in the mail, we did not print one! There was not much to
report and we decided to save the postage.
SEPTEMBER MEETING Just in case your interested in having dinner
at the American Legion on meeting night, the kitchen is open
only until 7:00 PM. Go early if you would like to order from
the kitchen and eat before the meeting.
Can you believe it's September all ready? Don't forget that
we have another cruise at the American Legion on Thursday, September
Tell all your friends to get their cars out and come to the
The August cruise was a great success. We had around 225 cars
there. The winner of the 50/50 got $237, and we sold 80 raffle
tickets. It sure would be nice to repeat that in September.
We are also looking at having a third cruise October 1 at the
American Legion—same time as the others These cruises are the
only events we have had to raise funds to keep the Club's bills
paid and raise money for our charities and especially our scholarship
for the Butler County Vo Tech.
The other way we are raising money is our annual Raffle.
Sales have been going very well. Dewey said that there are only
10 tickets left of the extra books bought by the club. So, if
you still have your book of tickets lying around, either sell
them, buy them or return them so we can get them sold. They
are not doing the club any good lying around. The Christmas
party is just around the corner.
More information will be provided in the October newsletter.
Due to lack of interest, there will be no picnic nor destination
cruise this summer In October we will once again be picking
a car to feature on our yearly dash plaque. Also, we will be
having elections. There are three positions up for election
this year---Butch Stock, Dave Harkins and me. As it stands right
now, I will not be running again. I can't speak for the others.
It is time that you younger members step up and put new ideas
and new life into this club. After all' Biden is only 7 years
older than me. Well, I have got to go pack. Going to see my
daughter in Tennessee for a few days, we will be back for the
cruise. Dave Bowen will be leading the September meeting as
I am having cataracts removed that day, so see you at the October
cruise. Your Prez, Terry Hayes
