From the Prez!

May 2014

Greetings Cruisers:

The May meeting of the Keystone Kruisers Car Club was held on May 1, 2014 at the Cabin Green Golf Club. As usual, the girls in the kitchen provided us with a delicious buffet. For those of you that were unable to attend, you missed a great meal, but here is a brief recap of the meeting:

There were 24 members in attendance. I want to thank Elaine WOLFE for taking notes, as my regular note-taker had to work.

We welcomed new member Geri ASHBAUGH. Geri has a Corvette and we look forward to her attending events with us and becoming an active member of the club. Welcome again Geri!

We also welcomed prospective members Roy and Bobbi WILLIAMSON to the meeting. We hope they enjoyed themselves and will consider membership.

Letters to local high schools announcing our Students Only Area of the cruise shall be sent out this month. I wanted it to be somewhat fresh in the minds of possible participants, as most school years don't end until early June.

Vice President/Webmaster Bill JOHNSON reports that the website contains information on local and not-so-local cruises. If you are aware of any cruises not listed, let him know. It also contains a weather app at the top, so you can see when, or if, it will rain. Check it out!

Secretaries Russ and Shirley COLLAR report that we now have 26 sponsors for our cruise. As the deadline has not yet arrived, it is hoped that more donations and sponsors shall climb aboard our worthy cause. We also have 9 new sponsors this year. Congrats and thanks to all who worked on the sponsor letter and helped to get the word out.

Treasurer Sherry MONTGOMERY stated that we now have $3,698.38 in our bank account. This is before cruise expenses and insurance.

The cruise T-shirt order list was at the meeting. For those of you that desire this years T-shirt, lavender with purple writing, make sure that you contact me, Russ COLLAR or Bill JOHNSON with your request. We need your name, quantity, and size(s). The order and payment must be placed so that we can have the shirts by the cruise. Prices are $6.50 for small to extra large, $8.50 for 2X, and $9.75 for 3X. Please contact us ASAP, as the cut-off date in June 5th.

The ice cream poker run is set for Saturday (not sundae), August 16, 2014. We will (banana) split from the Franklin Village Mall by McDonald's. Mark your calender and fill the air shocks now! (Root beer) "Float" a loan if you have to, but don't (milk) shake it off! It promises to be "loads" of fun (and ice cream, too!)

Very local events for May include the Cadet Cruise on Wednesday May 21, 2014 and the Ford City Salute to Our Troops Car Cruise on Saturday, May 24, 2014. There are many other cruises starting up, so be sure to check the Keystone Kruisers website for the latest info regarding starting dates and times.

Also, for you Face book fans, "like" the North-West PA Area Car Cruises. It lists other cruises that may be of interest to members.

Remember, tell your friends about us. We really are a great group of people.

The next meeting will be held on June 5, 2014 at Cabin Green. We eat at 6, (another great buffet) and the meeting is at 7. As always, any concerns, comments or questions, you can call, e-mail or text me.

Stay safe,

Randy

See ya there.
