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.
