Attending club members dis- cussed enjoying the After-the-Holidays party!

January 17, 2019

Twelve members began our first meeting of the New Year at 6: 51 p. m. as chapter chaplain Steve Sanguino read our invocation. We discussed predictions of snow for the upcoming weekend and decided to postpone our “After the Holidays” party from Sun- day January 20th to Sunday January 27th. We also took a count of those members planning to attend. Lory Wolf distributed copies of her year-end treasurer’s report. Bill Wolf our newsletter editor proposed that the chapter purchase a small supply of first class postage stamps (for mailing out Metro News) prior to a price increase on January 27th. It was agreed to acquire 3 or 4 rolls of stamps at the current cost. Board member Steve Kiellar passed out updated POCI applications featuring the new logo. We established Sunday October 6th as the date for this year’s annual car show. We were asked for our opinions of last year’s show. It was suggested that we make some minor changes to the parking arrangement on the show field, that we encourage show entrants to completely fill out their ballots and also that show entrants not be permitted to vote for their own car(s). Sponsorship benefits will last a year from October to October. Lory will send 2 updates to our web designer. She reported that our Facebook page (Garden State Pontiac Club) is becoming more popular and that we should all feel free to post Pontiac related items. Lastly Bill mentioned that our friends at POCI’s Long Island Chapter will host their delectable annual brunch on Sunday April 7th at the View in Oakdale, Long Island. The meeting was over at 7: 4 4 p. m.

President Dianne Lennox reported that the After the Holidays party was confirmed for Sunday, January 20, 2019, at 3:30 PM at Casa Giuseppe, 503 Valley Brook Avenue, Lyndhurst, New Jersey.

President Dianne Lennox also reported that the Chapter website had been updated to include pictures from the annual car show, and Treasurer Lory Wolf reminded everyone that the Chapter’s Facebook page was open to anyone who wanted to post information there.

OCTOBER 25, 2018

Steve Sanguino our chapter chaplain along with 8 other members began our meeting with an invocation at 7:01 p.m. Chapter President Dianne Lennox reported that our October 7th car show was a financial success. Approximately 55 cars arrived for the show. There are now 88 Garden State Chapter members. We briefly talked about altering the arrangement of cars on the field of future car shows to better attract passersby. It was suggested that the owners of the show cars leave the hoods and trunks of their rides open for part of the time while on the show field to allow for observation of those areas. It was noted that our website and newsletter will be receiving photos from various members. Our chapter Facebook page established by Lory Wolf our treasurer is now up and running. It is open to the public and bears the title “Garden State Pontiac Club.” We began to discuss our “After-the-Holidays” party and the necessity to decide upon a hosting restaurant at our November meeting. Our next meetings will take place on Thursday, November 15th and Thursday, December 20th. The meeting concluded at 8:00 p.m.
