AUGUST 16, 2018

Nine members began our meeting at 6:52 p.m. as Steve Sanguino chapter chaplain read the invocation. Lory Wolf presented her treasurer’s report. She noted that there has been no recent change in the number of chapter members. The Masonic Lodge in Clifton, New Jersey has been reserved once again as the site for our car show. The food truck which served us so well at last year’s show has also been booked for our Sunday, October 7th event. We discussed the various aspects of a DJ’s job at our shows and will be seeking one whose fees are moderate. Chapter President Dianne Lennox announced that our car show sponsor forms have been updated and she handed out some to several of us. Our next newsletter will include a sponsor form as well as a show flyer. Our show will feature trophies for 17 car classes. A get-well card was passed around for members to sign. It will be mailed to chapter director Ray Schwedhelm who is recovering from recent surgery. Lory Wolf proposed establishing a Facebook page. Making it a public site may encourage others to join our club. Lory suggested “Garden State Pontiac Club” as a possible name for our Facebook endeavor. She will do some research. We will consider recommending that our car show entrants have an appropriate fire extinguisher in their rides on show day. After a reasonable amount of time this recommendation would become a requirement for all who enter their beloved Pontiacs, Oaklands or GMCs in Garden State Chapter shows. The meeting ended at 7:53 p.m
