Presidents Message – Sept- October 2020

If you host it, they will come!!! I cannot begin to say how excited and grateful we were at the tremendous suc- cess of our 2020 Chapter car show. Mother Nature decided to cut us a big break this year, and we had almost

100 cars show up!! We are all so happy to have been able to provide a pleasant diversion from all the uncertain-
ties swirling around us.

Many, many thanks to all who participated, especially for their consideration of all the extra COVID-19 protocols
we had to follow, and congratulations to all of our show winners, especially Chapter member Stephen Sanguino
who took Best of Show this year with his 1953 Chieftain. Many, many thanks also to all club members who helped
in setting up and running the show, and, as always, special thanks to all our sponsors!!
Hoping our “roving reporter,” Mike Weiss will be able to provide one of his wonderful write-ups for our next
newsletter. Mike’s reporting services are quite in demand!!
Well, so much for the 2020 car season, or what there was of it here. As I write this, the pandemic appears to be
hurling its second wave at us here in New Jersey and the tri-state area. Normally, we would start discussing our
Chapter’s annual “post-holiday” dinner. Unfortunately, it looks like we may have to play that by ear until after the
holidays.
Our Chapter’s next regular meetings are scheduled for will be November 19 and December 17. Unfortunately,
the Maple Valley Diner has instituted new winter hours, closing at 4 pm during the week, so we will be on the
search for an alternate location. Otherwise, we may have to resort back to using Zoom again. We will keep
everyone posted.
