President’s Message

At our July monthly meeting Tom Jerisha informed club members that he has a cancerous lump in the bottom of his mouth that will have to be removed. His hospital stay will be 7-10 days. He is requesting no visitors during his stay. The recovery time will be several months. Tom said he would keep us informed of his recovery via email. Please keep Tom in your thoughts and prayers. We wish Tom a speedy and full recovery.

The club car show was a financial success even though turnout was quite a bit lower this year. I am not sure whether the last two years were anomalies and this is the norm or if we had a down year due to potential storms and other events going on that day. The car count was 73 paid participants. Down from about 110. However since we had new sources of revenue. Union State Bank, Blue Moon, 50/50 drawing (thanks to Mary Stibbe for donating the winnings back to the Boys and Girls Club), and entry fee, we were able to raise $1500 for the Boys and Girls club of Wets Salem.

Our next monthly meeting will be at Ron and Ramona’s on August 23rd. Start time is 3:30 pm.
