August 2018 – Newsletter

 

Once again we were very fortunate to avoid the predicted rain on the night of our dinner meeting at the Waterside.  The Corvette caravan had a beautiful ride from Watertown to Henderson Harbor.  We also had a gorgeous view of the Lake from the dining room, once we arrived.

 

I must say, Billy Caprara and his staff know how to throw a party!  The restaurant was closed to the public and we had use of their built-in sound system, which worked extremely well.  The service was excellent, as was the food.  As a special treat, three stand-up comedians performed after dinner -- they had everyone “rolling in the aisles”!  Pardon my use of another cliché, but that’s going to be a “hard act to follow”!  Thanks Billy!

 

Officer nominations were held, and all current officers were nominated for another term.  Voting will take place at the September meeting

 

Our annual charitable contribution suggestions are due at the September meeting also.  I will attach a form with this newsletter.  You may email me the pertinent information or send it snail mail or bring it to the next meeting.  Please keep in mind, we like to restrict our donations to the tri-county area and Ontario, the bases of our membership.

 

 

We had a good turnout for the ice cream cruise to the Guzzle on August 9th, about 10 cars.

Although the venue was unique and enjoyable, we probably won’t repeat it.  As several participants pointed out, it’s quite “pricey”.

We are going to try to work in another ice cream cruise before it gets too cold – maybe The Gals’ Place?

 

 

 

This is member Joe Spano’s recently restored 1962.  Isn’t she gorgeous!!  Don’t you just love the color? Okay guys and gals, you can stop drooling now.

 

The September dinner meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26th, at Ray’s Pub & Grub, at Sand Bay (half-way between Clayton and Cape Vincent).  We will pre-select from a limited menu, at an all-inclusive price of $25.00pp.  Details will go out by email soon.

The contact is Betsy Jacobs.

Tentative plans are in the works for October, November and December.  We thought we’d try a combination meeting/Halloween party in October, perhaps at the appropriately named Spookhill.  Then in November, dinner at the Steak ‘n’ Brew in Turin, which is always popular.  We are looking for ideas for our Christmas party in December.  We are open for suggestions.  Steve Dion & Wayne Harris did a great job planning our party at Maggie’s last year.  We are also hoping to organize a Fall Cruise early in October.  We’ll keep you posted.

 

SAVE THE WAVE!!!!
