JULY 19, 2018

Our meeting began at 6:56 p.m. as chapter chaplain Steve Sanguino presented our invocation to 12 members. Ray and Mary Ann Schwedhelm related their pleasant time at the recent 46th POCI convention in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Some of their convention photos will be sent to newsletter editor Bill Wolf. Several of us were inspired to discuss the 2019 convention in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Our web designer will be asked to do some updates such as changing the name of our recently remodeled monthly meeting place from “The Hearth” to the “Maple Valley Diner.” The food truck which served us so well at our October 2017 car show has been booked for this year’s show. We also spoke about various dash plaque designs for the show. Chapter vice-president Greg Pavan remains in charge of coming up with a dash plaque that always pleases. We thought it wise to go over car show parking arrangements on location towards the end of August or in September. Chapter director Steve Kiellar handed out freshly copied color show flyers. We are looking for a new DJ to “set the beat” on show day. Additional chapter T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts will be needed for the show’s merchandise table. It was noted that only 2 chapter meetings remain prior to the Sunday, October 7th show. Our meeting was over at 7:56 p.m.
