President’s Message / Tom Harvey
Hope everyone is keeping warm and dry!  I thought we were going to have a mild winter there for awhile. Then came the blizzard with record snowfall amounts and then record low temperatures. I don’t know about that groundhog, but winter is sure going out like a lion!  Not to worry, car season is right around the corner and its time to start thinking about our rod run. We have a recipient picked out, I have the raffle tickets being printed and we are almost ready to get the flyer printed. Remember to try and get some new sponsors this year.  Thank you for all your efforts in advance and lets make this years’ another huge success.   Tom

Here is an interesting history lesson!!


Another oldie but goodie


Six soldiers pull up on a main street in Halifax, Nova Scotia as part of a parade. They’re in a standard issue WWII type Willys Jeep. In four to five minutes they completely disassemble the vehicle, reassemble it and drive off! The idea being to show the genius that went into the making of the jeep and its basic simplicity. They just don’t make them like the Willys Jeep any more.
