For those of you that were unable to attend, the following is a brief recap of the meeting.

President-

  • The annual club picnic shall be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018, beginning at 3:00 pm. Please bring a chair to sit on and a covered dish to share. Dinner will be consumed in an orderly manner (yea, right, tie on those feedbags!) at 5:00 pm! Plan to stay for outdoor games and friendly, invigorating conversation with old and new friends. Please feel free to invite family and friends. As usual, an open invitation to all members of the Kittanning AACA club shall be extended by the President in the hope that they will attend. The picnic shall be held at the Collar residence in Sherrett. Those needing directions, please contact any board member.

    Please remember that in October, we nominate Officers to lead the club forward in the following year. We already have one (as of yet, non-official) nomination for the office of President! That's great, as new blood means new ideas!!! Please try to attend October's meeting and make your voice heard!

    Until then, stay safe and see ya on the road! (Note, it's probably gonna rain because I got 4 new tires on the Chevelle and cleaned it all up!)
