                                       A Message From The President




Dear Members,

        It was a great weekend at the Mt. Washington Auto road in July. The variety of activities made it interesting for
everyone. I have received many calls, notes and e-mails congratulating the Granite Region for putting on an excellent
show at an inviting site along side the historic hill climb cars. Special thanks to Larry and Shirley Cossar for putting
together a team that made it all happen so well. Also want to thank the Charter Trust Co. and the Auto Road for their
sponsorship and support.
        Two of our member families , Dick & Chris Metz and Dave & Karen Simmering have recently organized
activities for the Crown Victoria Club and the Model “T” Club respectively. Congratulations to them on very successful
events.
        Let’s get a big turnout for Sky & Dot Borst’s Canterbury Show in Oct. You’ll read elsewhere about getting a
group of our cars together to travel to that show.
        I encourage all our members to put forth ideas for Club events, and lets get as much time in old cars as possible
during this fall season.
                                                                            Happy Fall,
