From the Prez!

March 2015

Greetings Cruisers!

The March meeting of the Keystone Kruisers Car Club was held on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at Cabin Greens Golf Club. As usual, the dinner fare was exquisite and the camaraderie was outstanding! As this was the first meeting of 2015, some of the events and issues that had occurred over the winter months were addressed and discussed.

Vice President JOHNSON reported on future cruises, and reminded us that there will be a Cruisin' Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. It will be held in East Brady. This event will be attended by notables such as CruisinTimes Magazine, Big Al of Big Al's List and Vito of carcruises.com. Some of our members are planning to attend, so if you wish to join us, call, text, send up smoke signals or email me and we will hook you up. After a discussion, it was voted on, and approved, to produce 500 copies of our new 2015 Cruise flyer and distribute same at the Town Hall Meeting.

Secretaries COLLAR reported that sponsor letters will be sent out in March. Also, COOPERS, a new pizza/pastry shop, located on Main Street in Worthington, is currently seeking 8 x 10 photographs of cruise cars for interior decorations at the shop. If you have any pix you would like to see hanging on the wall, give her a call.

The President presented a handout that lists our past and present pecuniary donations to local charities and businesses. This handout shall be included in the registration packet at the cruise, and shall be included in the sponsor letters. A vote to included the handout as above was requested and approved.

All members are reminded that during the course of their daily lives, remember that we need cruise sponsors. Everyone, please endeavor to sign at least one sponsor this year.

The President's Choice Trophy for our 2015 cruise has been ordered from McMillan Trophies of Kittanning. A photo of same was presented at the meeting.

By hand-vote, it was decided to look into becoming a member of the Armstrong County Tourist Bureau. Members of the Bureau can have their organization's functions listed and printed in the Tourist Bureau Magazine and enjoy other membership benefits. Further information to follow.

Currently we have thirty two paid members. Some are families, some are individuals. This year, we have only six members that have yet to sign up for 2015.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the Cabin Greens Golf Club. Dinner will be at 6:00PM and the meeting will start at 7:00PM. Hope to see everybody there.

As always, if you have any comments, questions, concerns, or just want to shoot the breeze, you can always call, text or email me. I like new ideas!

Until then, stay safe and warm.
