Happy July to all. I would like to
welcome our new members Dick and
Terry Johnson. Tom and Marci Jarvis
and previous members Joe and Sarah
Garcia were voted in as new members
at the last meeting and will receive
their member packages at the July
meeting. Welcome again and thanks to
the members who took the time to
sponsor these folks. We are now up to
89 members. Great job!
We have some good runs coming up.
Pam Hansen’s Word From Home Car
Show on June 28th is a great way to
show our appreciation to the military
personnel who sacrifice so much to
ensure our freedom. The Dawson’s are
putting on the Snelling Homecoming
Car Show on July 12th and the
Anderson’s/Garrahan’s the Ventura run
July 24-26, Now the bad news on runs.
We have none scheduled after these
until the Mystery run in October.
If anyone has a run idea they have
been contemplating now would be a
good time to act on it. If a newer
member wants to put on a run there is
a wealth of experience available from
the “older heads” in the club and they
are all happy to help.
At the last meeting we voted on a logo
and “Fresno” is now on our logo but is
not part of our official name and
everybody is happy (hopefully). Many
thanks to Charlie Fosnaugh for all his
work in putting together the options
for us to vote on and also working
with an embroidery shop to get us
some really good deals on clothing.
More to follow at the July meeting.
See you all at the next meeting.
