Summer is coming to an end and all the

fall fun will be here before we know it.

We’ve got the Bass Lake Lunch Run this

month and the Sugar Pine Railroad Run

in October that will get us up into the

mountains during the best time of the

year up there. We’ve also got Queen

Escort Runs at Firebaugh and Sanger

that are a great way to reconnect with

our high school years. Football,

cheerleaders and queens.

The signup for the Mystery Run is

complete and we have 22 cars signed

up and paid. Dates are still October

25-29 and we will be leaving about

7:30am and be back late afternoon.

More info to follow.

I think we did a great thing as a club

last meeting when we unanimously

voted to donate $1000 to a local

charity. We will vote on which charity

to support at the September meeting.

Our nominated choices are The

Marjorie Mason Center, Rescue the

Children, Children’s Hospital and Got

Your 6. Come to the meeting and

support your favorite.

It’s not too early to check your

calendar and make sure you have

December 10 th marked off for the CVC

Christmas Party and December 13 th for

our annual Hayride. This time of the

year time truly flies.

Our club shirt project was a huge

success and if you want more shirts go

down to StitchMaster and check out

what they have. I think we’re going to

get a couple yellow ones to match our

car. See you all at the next meeting.
