KEYSTONE KRUISERS
22 YEARS STRONG...AND STILL GROWING!

Greetings All!!!

The June meeting of the Keystone Kruisers Car Club took place on Thursday, June 7th at the Cabin Green Golf Club. There were 32 members in attendance. After a great meal, we got down to business. For those of you that were unable to attend, here is a brief review of the meeting:

President's Report

  • 10 letters were send to local school districts regarding the "Students Only" portion of the cruise and inviting the students to participate and possibly win a prize. It was decided that students may park anywhere within the parking areas and still be eligible to win. This way they can park with family and/or friends. Karen CLAYPOOL graciously made numerous Hi-Viz signs to signify a student entry, making it much easier to identify those participants. Thanks Karen!
  • Read correspondence from (current 2018 sponsor) Ford City State Farm Agent Ryan BOWSER requesting permission to set up a tent or table at the cruise to pass out insurance information to the cruise participants. After a discussion and a hand vote, it was decided to reject his request. If we permitted all sponsors to set up a table, there would be no room for the cars! Mr. BOWSER was advised, via correspondence, as to the decision of the members. He was invited to attend the cruise and hand out business cards or information if he desires to do so. His name shall be listed on the back of the cruise T shirts.
  • Kelli McGAUGHY of M&M LIME graciously provided a Chinese Auction basket containing a certificate for up to 4 tons of limestone, a $70.00 to $90.00 value! We thank her for her generosity!
  • On Friday, June 15th, there will be a cruise in Ford City at the park. See our website for full details.
  • Pencil in the date of July 29th. It is our annual trip north to the Camp Sherwin (Erie) cruise. The time is 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. As you know, we usually stop for breakfast and dinner. After all, what's a cruise without food! Further info to follow.
  • The sign up sheets for cruise duties were again passed around and garnered more signatures. If you haven't yet signed up, don't worry. See me or any board member at the cruise and I'll find something for ya to do! We're always looking for eager helpers!!!
