Good of the order
Joe Mudrick found some real old Butler newspapers from the 1950's. Articles from car dealerships, advertisements. He said he has a table of free crap to be given away to anyone who is interested.
Talk about memories from the past, businesses and buildings that are no longer in existence, but some of us old farts still remember those Businesses! 50/50 was won by T Hayes for 25.50.
Wonder how that happened?
Meeting adjourned by 8:10 Vice President, Dave Bowen


On September 5 we will be having a cruise at the Legion and we will be drawing the winners of the Summer Raffle. If you want more tickets, we will be selling them at the cruise. The cruise is from 4:00 to 9:00. The American Legion will be offering food and beverages. If you want something from the bar, you must be a member to purchase your drink, and you may purchase for a guest. If you take a guest inside to the bar, you must sign in and sign in your guest. Also, please remember that you must take off your hat when you enter the bar. We will be drawing the Summer Raffle tickets at 7:00 and shortly after that we will be drawing the 50/50. We look forward to you coming out and supporting the club as this is the only cruise we are having this year. The Prospect VFD Car Cruise scheduled for 9/1 was cancelled due to the rain and is rescheduled for 9/8. The Artisan Restaurant will be having their last cruise on 9/22. For those of us who attended the clubís Family Picnic on Aug 25, we had good food and good fun. A very big thank you goes out to Butch and Linda Stock for all the effort they put forth getting ready for the picnic, cooking the food, running the games and making sure everything was cleaned up before we all left. Butch and Linda put in a lot of work each year to make the Family Picnic a fun time for everyone. This year, we didnít even have 25 people there. That is a downright shame. We try to do these activities for the members. It is our way of showing appreciation for all of you. But it seems that no one cares anymore. Thatís why there were no cruises this year. Thatís why no one wants to hold an office. We already had to reduce the board from 7 to 5, and we cannot reduce it again. And the ones on the board are the ones who are doing all the work and, if you look at the numbers, for almost nothing. This apathy cannot continue. If you donít like the leadership, take a place on the Board. The only end to this lack of participation and caring is that after 38 years the club may actually be facing folding. Is that what you all want? Donít forget, we will be having elections and picking the car for next yearís dash plaque at the October meeting.
T. Hayes, President.
