Business Meeting: 3 Tuesday of each month at Wyatt Johnson Toyota Dealership on Wilma Rudolph Blvd.…6:30 PM
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year celebration this year. I know mine is going to be
great because I will be officially retired! It’s clear that winter has finally arrived. It started out on the cold
side but has been mild the last few days. It’s great to see the cold weather has not kept the club members
from getting together at Wendy’s and talking cars. Our new members are also beginning to run with the
rest of us and I appreciate them doing so.
Thank you for electing me as your President once again, and I, along with all the other officers, will try to
do the best job we can do to represent our club. We have already awarded $400 to each of 2 charities,
Loaves & Fishes & Shop with a Cop, and $800 to special needs students at a local elementary school. We
also contributed money to a deserving and needy family in the area. At the January meeting we will
decide on whether there are other deserving charities we want to donate to. These donations would not
have been possible if everyone had not pulled together and made our monthly cruise-in events and our
annual car show a success. Thanks again to all who helped to make it happen!
We are now underway with planning for our next show in the fall and we will discuss who we want to
head up the efforts as our car show chairman for 2015 (hopefully Jim Hutchens). There are already some
really great ideas surfacing on how we can have an even better show than we had this year. It will once
again take a tremendous effort on behalf of all of our members to make this next show a success again.
There are a few shows coming up in January and February that you might be interested in attending.
Watch the newsletter or contact Don Mays for details. I would like to see more new members attend our
monthly club meetings and get to know everyone on a personal basis. I encourage each of you to be on the
lookout for possible new members to recruit. Until next month….
Bill Baggett

Our first 2015 Club Meeting will be January 20th, it would be nice to have more members
involved in the monthly meetings, but maybe, just maybe, the Board of Directors needs to make
the meetings more interesting.. Are you with me??? I would like to hear from you what we
should do differently at the meetings..........Can we have interesting Speakers, presentations or
specific topics to talk about. Give this some thought..........I for one think the meetings are not
interesting enough? Let me hear from you. [email protected] or 615-517-1423
