Welcome to the Suwannee River Region AACA

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 Wellborn Community Association Center, in Wellborn, FL, 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; PO Box 7095, Lake City, FL  32056; e:mail [email protected]

A Message From Our President:

The weather, the weather, the weather! I can’t stop talking about October’s gorgeous weather… WOW. Why can’t it be like this all year long? A great month to get out and enjoy our cars. Even though I am still dealing with my foot injury I did manage to get out to some of the events and cruise-in’s this month.

The Wellborn Pancake Breakfast had a great turnout. I can’t say enough about Sal’s with the wonderful turnout of 32.  Also, please read my story on Harts Springs Festival on page 11. My understanding was the Live Oak Coliseum was a great turn out as well, so check out Ralph’s Story.  

Elections will be finalized at the November meeting. We have our nominees for every posi-
tion except President.  Anyone interested please let me know.  Don’t forget your toys for the “Toys for Tots” event November 20th at Honda of Lake City which is sponsored by the Ameri-
can Legion Riders. To enter your car that day you must bring a toy or $10 to register.  As long as you are shopping for toys you might just want to pick up your toys for the Community Center children with approximately a $10 value. You can bring them to the November meeting if you like but definitely will need them for the December 2nd meeting. The children’s Christmas party is December 11.  

Our Christmas Party will be held this year at the Wellborn Community Center building. It will be a covered dish with our Master Chef Don Downs cooking the meat for us. Meat will be announced at the November meeting. 

Some events are still being canceled so call before you go anywhere. You don’t want to get there and be disappointed. The High Springs show was canceled this year. It is always the last Saturday in October. Let’s think ahead to next year and see what things you would like to do or go see. We are always open to suggestions.

Have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!
