                         A NOTE FROM OUR PREZ
No leaves, no trees, no cruise nights, no shows, no kidding it must be November,the month that’s natures way
of giving you time to eat up all the Halloween candy before you have to start eating the left over turkey.
Anyhow, November is here and the chill in the air and the shorter days tells us that a New England Fall and
Winter is approaching. The “toys” are being put away but we will make the best of it and keep things going.
Let’s keep in touch and there will be events planned so please try to attend. We may not have the cars but we
can certainly enjoy each others company and talk about the cars. November 23rd of course is Thanksgiving
and traditionally the start of the holiday season. I think it is a good time to stop and pause, be thankful for that
which we have and be thoughtful of others who do not have as much.
Our Northeast Regional has come and gone but WE DID IT and it was just great. A thank you to Rob Collette
for posting some pics on to our MSN group and Paul Morgan for posting on to our web site for all to see.
Many thanks again to everyone who helped out we couldn’t have done it without the help. Consensus of
opinion from members and those that attended, is that we should do it again and I couldn’t agree more. Please
keep it in mind for now, think about it, and after the first of the year we will meet and discuss it. Let’s just all
relax for now………….Thanks !
Also, “you might be a motor head if you have memorized your car’s option codes and the customer service
number of the Chevelle parts suppliers but can’t remember your social security number, anniversary or
birthday dates”……….LOL and have a GREAT DAY!
Your Prez

Jim Goodwin                            Happy Thanksgiving !


It would really be appreciated if all
renewals are in by the end of
December. If a renewal is not received
by January 8th, names will be
removed from the active roster and I
really don’t want to see that happen.
Thanks! Jim

                                                     THE TURKEY
Though there is no real evidence that turkey was served at the Pilgrim's first thanksgiving, but through ages it became an
indispensable part of the Thanksgiving tradition. The tradition of turkey is rooted in the 'History Of Plymouth Plantation',
written by William Bradford some 22 years after the actual celebration.

The turkey has brown features with buff-colored feathers on the tips of the wing and on the tail. The male turkey is called a
'tom'. It is bigger and brighter with more colorful plumage. Also it has a long wattle (a fleshy, wrinkled, brightly colored
fold of skin hanging from the neck or throat) at the base of its bill and additional wattles on the neck, as well as a prominent
tuft of bristles resembling a beard projecting downward from its chest. The female is called a 'hen' and is generally smaller
and drab in color.

The wild turkey is native to northern Mexico and the eastern United States. Later it was domesticated in Mexico, and was
brought into Europe early in the 16th century.

Since that time, turkeys have been extensively raised because of
the excellent quality of their meat and eggs.

Some of the common breeds of turkey in the United States are
the Bronze, Narragansett, White Holland, and Bourbon Red.

"The turkey is a much more respectable Bird and withal a true
original Native of North America.” Remarked Benjamin Franklin,
the scientist cum statesman, who was in favor of making Turkey
the national Bird, instead of Bald Eagle.

The holidays came quick. Give thanks for all you have and say a little pray for those that don’t have anything.
Enjoy this time with your family and friends. Eat all the turkey and fixins you can, they always taste better the
second day. Have fun even if your wife drags you shopping the day after Thanksgiving, if someone eats the last
piece of your favorite pie, or your football team doesn’t win. This is great time to volunteer, maybe you have a
favorite organization, you can also find one on-line or in the phone book that may peak your interest. I have
served thanksgiving dinner at the PIP shelter in Worcester, you really feel good knowing you have helped others
who may not get a regular hot meal.
