A Message From Our President:


Fall means an explosion of car shows and festivals. October and November have something going on almost every weekend! So… all we need to do is dust off our vehicles, fill up our gas tanks, and be ready to head out. 

October 1st, we headed to the Moose Lodge Breakfast at 8:30. Larry Shanks’ Celebration of Life was to follow but was rescheduled due to the storm.  It will now be on the 16th at noon.  Bruce Pepper will be our speaker for the October 6th meeting. “It’s all about NAPA” will be the topic so come out and see what they are all about. October 7th we will head to the Willow Creek Nursing Home for their Fall Festival and car display… lunch is provided!  October 8th, we trek over to the Suwannee County Airport to have our cars on display for the “Wings over Suwannee”. It will be a fun day of cars and airplanes. A new event for us will be the First United Methodist Church “Pumpkin Patch” on the 15th from 10-1PM with a car display. Let’s decorate our cars for the occasion!  On October 22nd, it’s back to Live Oak for the Suwannee Coliseum Show. This is a judged show to benefit the Suwannee High School ROTC. You need to register between 7 – 9AM for the event. Awards will be at noon.  A full month for sure… not to mention Hardees every Friday night and of course Sal’s the third Tuesday of the month. 

Don’t forget October is time to renew your Local and National membership. Give your $20 dues in an envelope with your name on the outside to Roy.  National dues can either be sent in, or called in.  Also, due to the Cornbread Festival November 5, we will not be able to use the building that first week of November. Our NOVEMBER MEETING WILL BE HELD OCTOBER 27.  Elections for Officers will take place on that date.

Happy Halloween!
