The Suwannee River Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America (www.aaca.org), is a family friendly organization, located in North Florida. We love old cars, good food and enjoy above average comradery with each other. Our members are involved in local, state and national events. Our meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the El Potro Restaurant on US 90 across the street from the Lake City Mall and start at 7 PM. We cover necessary business, but the meetings are always light, interesting and involve all members and guests. If you have an interest in old cars, please consider joining us. For more information, contact:  Shirley McManus, President, 386-365-9643.

A message from our President:

Before I even get started with the Presidents Message I would like to thank all of you for the thoughts, well wishes, cards, texts, phone calls and most of all the prayers for my husband this month. I can’t tell you how much they were appreciated. He is doing much better and we are just taking one day at a time. I thought by now we might have some events opening up, but Covid 19 is still going strong and everything is still being cancelled. We did continue with our National Car Collector’s Appreciation Day on July 21 at Sal’s Italian Deli. Again thank you to those who supported that event, masks and all. It was a delight to welcome the North Central Florida Region to this event. I know they enjoyed the great Italian food and the friendship. I’m hoping they will come back each month.  As hard as it was raining outside it didn’t dampen the spirits inside and we all enjoyed the Ice Cream Social our club sponsored. Eventually the sun came out just in time for our Ceremony. You know what they say in Florida wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.  We enjoyed seeing everyone’s car and it amazes me how you have an instant friendship with someone who is a Car Collector. Be on the lookout for the story and the Group Pictures to appear in the Online AACA Speedster and also the SEMA web page where all
the pictures will be. I will let you know as soon as they are posted.
Remember we are going to head to Tallahassee Auto Museum on Aug. 15th and hope we can get a good group to attend. Let me know if you care to go. I do have to sign us up ahead of time. The cost is $10 and you can stay as long you like & they do require folks to wear masks.

I want to look to September for our Pancake breakfast.  Hopefully we can have it at Cannon Creek Airpark like we did the last time and invite the neighbors. I will set a date for that sometime in August.  I also want to mention that the next meeting August 6 will be at the Wellborn Association Building. If you care to go to dinner first we suggest the Country Charm
Restaurant right around the corner from the meeting. If you go by 5:30 you will be in time for the meeting at 7. Remember they have a coupon in the Advertiser every week.  The doors will open to the building at 6:30, so we can still have a social time, and I still have left over snacks and drinks from the last meeting to share. 

Looking forward to seeing you all,
