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.
