President’s Message Jan- Feb 2021

Well, we made it through 2020!! We’ve got nowhere to go but up now.
Looking forward to Car Season (aka Spring!!), especially after missing out all last year. We’d love to hear from you
with any information you get on car shows, cruise nights, or other events. Please forward it to our newsletter
editor, Bill Wolf, by mail or email it to our website mailbox. I’ve been very excited to see several local shows
already circulating dates for 2021!!
Dues are OVERDUE!!! Thanks to all who have sent in their dues for 2020; reminders are on the way to the
procrastinators.
As you know, we were unable to hold our annual “After the Holidays” this past January. We’re hoping to do
something over the summer – maybe a Chapter picnic? – to get everyone together.
This year’s Chapter car show is officially scheduled for Sunday, October 3, 2021, with a rain date of Sunday,
October 10, 2021 at the Masonic Lodge on Van Houten Avenue in Clifton. Let’s see if we can match last year’s
attendance of 90+ cars!!
Also mark your calendars for this year’s POCI Convention at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut which
runs from Sunday, July 11, through Thursday, July 15, 2021. I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed that the
COVID pandemic lets up enough so we can pull this off.
Last but not least – all Chapter members who are also national POCI members should cast their ballots for the
2021 POCI Director Elections. Ballots were included in your February 2021 Smoke Signals. Not to overly
influence anyone, but be sure to vote for our own member, John Cappelmann, for another term as Director of the
Northeast Division.
Next meeting dates are March 18 and April 15 at the Tick Tock Diner in Clifton.
