South Orange County Rods and Customs Monthly Meeting
SOCRC Meeting Notes 0919
Club meeting September 12, 2019
Denny opened the meeting at 6:10 PM. There were 47 members in attendance.
He thanked all who helped out on this event, the last barbecue of the summer. Helpers including Bob Wright, Jim Boka, Doc McKeown and Mike Stoner.
Denny sent out condolences to Bob and Carroll Whaler on the loss of their son.
He also thanked Mike and Nancy Rockwood‘s daughter for the beautiful flowers for Ben Buchanan.
Jim Boka gave his report. After paying for the flowers and barbecue in the park there is $$$$ in the kitty. The silent auction was very disappointing, collecting only $80. This auction used to be a big moneymaker and bringing funds into our club.
