President’s Message March – April 2016

As you’ve noticed from the front cover, our annual car show, scheduled for Sunday, October 2, 2016, will be held at the Clifton Masonic Lodge located at 1476 Van Houten Avenue, Clifton, New Jersey, which is easily accessible from Route 80, Route 46, Route 3, and the Parkway.

We were advised at the beginning of the year that the VFW Hall in Franklin Lakes where we have been holding our show is closing, which is why we are moving. We thank their members for all their hospitality in hosting our show the last few years. Unfortunately, this seems to a theme this year as we have learned that a couple of other Chapters in the tristate area also have to relocate their shows.

“Car season” is kicking off and first on our agenda is Chapter member, Lou Calasibetta’s, annual Open House/Breakfast/ Car Show at Old Stillwater Garage on Main Street in Stillwater, New Jersey, on Saturday, May 7. As usual, anyone who wishes to can meet at the Pompton Queen Diner on Route 23 in Pompton Plains (before Route 287) by 7:30 that morning to caravan up to Lou’s. We leave for Lou’s at 7:45.

Be sure to check the “Upcoming Events” in the newsletter and the calendar on our website for car shows, cruise nights and other events. Feel free to contact me or any of the other officers and directors if you know of any car shows or cruise nights in your area. Some of the upcoming major events: Pypes Open House in Hatfield, Pennsylvania – June 17-18, 2016, and the POCI annual convention in Bettendorf, Iowa – July 12-16, 2016.

Next meeting dates are May 19 and June 16 at The Hearth.
