President’s Message May-June

Summer is finally here!!

Unfortunately, once again, the weather gods decided to mess with Lou Calasibetta’s annual open house at his Old Stillwater Garage on May 12, but there was still a more than respectable showing of Pontiacs and hotrods and customs. Many of us again went in our daily drivers, and, as always, a grand time was had by all!! Hats off to Lou for always hosting a wonderful Saturday morning outing.

The 2017 POCI Annual Convention is coming up in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin (June 24-30). Unfortunately, John and I are not able to attend, but a few of our Chapter members and their families are. We hope anyone who does attend would please share their comments and pictures when they return.

John and I, as well as a few other members with GTOs, will be at the GTOAA Convention in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, which runs from June 26 to June 30. (Shhhh!! Don’t tell anyone that we passed up Wisconsin for Pennsylvania!!)

Time to start planning for the Chapter’s annual car show. Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 7, at the Clifton Masonic Lodge, 476 Van Houten Avenue, Clifton, New Jersey. Last’s year’s show was a great success there, so we are going to try and replicate that!! Please be sure to pass the word around to any Pontiac owners you may know; and contact any of the officers or directors if you’d like any show flyers.

Our Chapter’s next regular meetings will be July 19 and August 16 at The Hearth in Clifton.
