members present as chapter chaplain Steve Sanguino said our blessing.
Copies of Lory Wolf’s monthly Treasurer’s report and October 3rd car
show financial report were circulated. We were especially successful in
our show merchandise sales and income from our show tricky tray event.
After a nice increase our membership stands at 91. Chapter member
Elaine Silvestri who helps to run our club store mentioned that we are still
unable to obtain our attractive long sleeve blue denim chapter shirt due to
a material shortage. We decided to insert a car show flyer in your Metro
News prior to next year’s show as Chapter Director Steve Kiellar had
done in 2020. We will consider a redesign of our car show ballot. We set
a date for our 2022 show as Sunday October 2nd. We will start to make
plans for our annual “After-the-Holidays” party by determining the
availability of Sunday January 16th and Sunday January 30th at the ever
popular Casa Giuseppe in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Our next meetings will
be on Thursday November 18th and Thursday December 16th. The
meeting ended at 8:04 p.m.

November’s meeting was more of a
social event, given that we had not seen each other in person since
February!! We did review our car show results. Otherwise, we
commiserated about the COVID situation.
