Presidents Message Nov-Dec 2021

Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year 2022! Last December, we were
hoping 2021 would see an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, but unfortunately it continues rear its ugly head every
time we think we’ve finally turned the corner on it. We continue to remember all those directly or indirectly
affected by the pandemic. May we all continue to appreciate what we have and those around us that much more.
On a brighter note, the Chapter’s “After the Holidays” party is back!!! The date is Sunday, January 30, 2022, at
3:30 PM at Casa Giuseppe in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Details in the newsletter, and a separate email will be
circulated shortly.
Don’t forget – Chapter dues are due in January. Reminder – annual Chapter dues are now $15. A remittance
form is included in this newsletter, and we will send the form via email as well.
Also, a quick reminder that the Chapter is on Facebook – Like our page at Garden State Pontiac Club. Feel free to
send us info to post on the page, especially pictures of your Pontiac or events you are aware of.
Our next regular Chapter meetings are January 20 and February 17, 2022, starting at 6 PM for eats with the
business portion of the meeting at 7 PM. We meet in person at the Tick Tock Diner on Route 3 in Clifton. Please
join us if you get a chance. It’s a great way to see your fellow members in person and toss around ideas for
activities, events, etc. One such event is a Chapter picnic which we will be looking to schedule in late
Spring/Summer 2022.
On behalf of our Chapter, we wish all our members best wishes for a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

The 2021 Chapter car show is in the books, and I am happy to report it was quite successful!! We had a good
turnout, especially with having to compete with at least a half-dozen other car shows in our area. Many thanks to all
who participated, and congratulations to all our show winners, especially Chapter member Martin Hirsch who took
Best of Show with his 1959 Bonneville Convertible. Many thanks to all club members who helped in setting up and
running the show, and special thanks to all our sponsors!!
Again, special thanks go to Mike Weiss for his fantastic write-up of the show. Due to space requirements, we
condensed his article on our show to focus on Chapter members in this newsletter. We will try to include the rest
of his article in a future newsletter.
Congratulations also go out to Chapter member Steve Goscinsky, who just won a National First Prize for his 1964
GTO convertible at the AACA Fall Meet in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Well done, Steve!!!
Once again, “car season” is winding down. 2021 turned out to be a pretty good year despite COVID trying its best
to stymie us – here’s hoping 2022 will see things really get back to normal.
I am happy to report that we will be having our Chapter’s annual “post-holiday” dinner sometime in January or early
February. At our last Chapter meeting, the vote was pretty much unanimous to return to Casa Giuseppe in
Lyndhurst. Details to follow.
Also, Marty Hirsh has invited the Chapter to visit his car collection. We will be working with Marty to arrange a
date to finally make that happen!!
Our Chapter’s next regular meetings are November 18 and December 16 at the Tick Tock Diner in Clifton.

December 16, 2021

DECEMBER 16, 2021 – Thirteen members began our meeting
at 7:15 p.m. Chapter President Dianne Lennox passed out copies
of Lory Wolf’s Treasurer’s report. Dianne also passed around
the flyer for our annual “After the Holidays” party. She raised the
issue of rising COVID cases again and whether we should proceed
with the party. All were in agreement to go ahead. We also
discussed scheduling a picnic for late spring/early summer. Elaine
Silvestri will be taking stock of our merchandise inventory and
reporting back next month with a potential order. It was also
reported that Chapter member Mike Weiss was speaking with
Tim Dye, and it appears his writeup on our 2021 car show will be
appearing in Smoke Signals in the near future. Our meeting ended
at 8:20 p.m
