Club Meeting at Laguna Niguel Regional Park
June 14, 2019
Meeting opened at 6 PM.
Club meeting and barbecue June 14 was held in Laguna Niguel Regional Park. There were 54 people in attendance.
Bob opened the meeting at 6 PM after welcoming Ed May to the meeting. It was so nice to see him and he looked quite well. It was brought in a wheelchair. His caregiver brought him. It was the first time many of the members had seen him since Polly‘s passing.
Bob welcomed all members and guests to the meeting and thanked our great chefs for cooking: Bob Wright, Mike Stoner and Denny Katovsich. Also, a great big thank you to Bob Wright and Jim Boka for all the work they put into the barbecue including all the buying of the food and going to the park early to set up. And thank you to all those who help clean up after the meeting.
David Lockwood announced he had a ticket for that San Clemente car show no charge. No takers.
Denny Katovsich talked about the Steve McQueen Show. He announced that our club had donated $500 to the Boy’s Republic. The car show made over $600,000 and had quite a great turn out. There were 27 cars from our club. Denny Katovsich, Bob Whaler, Carroll Whaler and Ted Quinn also attended the dinner and gala on the Friday evening before the show. Thank you to all those who attended and supported this awesome car show and supporting the Boy’s Republic. It does so much good for all the youth of today, teaching the boys trades while they are at the school and then leaving to make this world a better place. Thank you, Denny Katovsich, for all the hard work you do and the time you put in to the show.
Jim Boka gave his report. He announced the club has $$$$ in the bank. He collected $22 for clothing and$105 from the 50-50 raffle. The balance now is $$$$.
The next activity will be the San Clemente car show. Jim Perez has organized the members to park vehicles at this show.
There was very little response for the barbecue on the Fourth of July at Karen and Larry Davis’ home so it was canceled.
