January 2018 Meeting Minutes
Steve called the meeting to order at 7:00. (Just like hes
supposed to!) There was a motion to approve Decembers
minutes as emailed (thanks to Marti, MadDog gets them also),
seconded and approved. (Hey MadDog, how they hanging up there?
Whats it mean when you keep talking about a string and
getting lost? Oops, sorry yall, got off the track a
Treasurers report was read and approved. Steve discussed
the income and expenses for the month. A detailed Treasures
report is available to any member upon request.
of New Members:
Not tonight yall, but we did have some members back
that we havent seen in a while. That would be Candy
and Tom along with Randy. Where have you been, or maybe we
should ask, what have you been up to? Uhmmm? Either way it
was good to see them and we hope that now that you found us
again, youll be back. Now all we need is a Ziegler sighting
to make sure they are all okay
Events: Well, if you missed the yearly trip to Bella Romas
then you really missed it. WOW! Once again the food was fantastic,
the company goes without saying and all that I know of had
a great time. About 32-33 people showed up for this one and
it was certainly worth it. Too bad you missed it, maybe next
? A BIG THANK-YOU to Betty Perna for setting it
up with the management. Makes the Holidays just a little bit
better with Bella Romas in your belly.
next up was the Toy Run. We had about 80 cars, collected a
lot of toys, and everyone left with a smile on their face.
Gee, I wonder what was done to them to have that smile
on their face? Well, I did hear that BB (and you know
who you are) was there
Hey! Im just saying
about the Downtown Hollywood, first of the month cruise in.
This year the surprise guest was, no not Ted Vernon, but I
heard he was there, but the kid that everyone in my generation
grew up with, wait for it, Butch Patrick, or better known
as Eddie Munster! Thats right bodies and ghouls, little
Eddie Munster was there in all of his glory. Too bad I missed
that one, but if you were there, Im sure you had a great
time and represented the club in fine fashion. Close to 100
cars turned out and others had to be turned away, we heard
about 5000 emails were sent out by the city to promote the
event and what a fine day it was.
next cruise in was at, and make sure you read this one carefully,
Tatts and Tacos in Oakland Park. This was a spur of the moment
cruise in to help support one of the childrens hospital
in Miami, with an impromptu toy drive. Another great venue
and a terrific spot! The food at the Tatts and Tacos was very
good, the parking was well lit and very accommodating to us.
If youre not familiar with the area, it was on the northeast
corner of Oakland Park and Dixie. Watch your email another
one is coming soon.
have been cruising to the Finally its Friday
Cruise In, on the corner of Prospect and Andrews, (Oakland
Park) on the northeast corner also. If you remember where
Marges Garden Restaurant is, its right there!
Free parking, plenty of food spots, and music to remind you
of high school submarine races. So plan on joining us on the
first and third Fridays of the month, and no need to have

some of their loss. The group unanimously agreed to donate
$200.00 to Carolyn and Carl, with the other suggestions being
considered in the future. The check was given to Tony and
Barbara for delivery to Carolyn and Carl.

to the banquet, and Lisa would like to add, that you attened
the banquet with an open mind and open spirit to enjoy the
festivities ( Lisa, I dont think thats a Southern
?) to have a good time.

up for discussion: new slogan for the club shirts, Screw
it and do it! I LIKE IT! But I have to ask, screw what
and do what? Is that a Yankee slang on us Southerners? Hmm?
Well, all I say is this
. BRING BACK DISCO!

. Someone fill in here
The winner at this meeting
