July 2014

Hello everyone!

Happy Fourth of July!! Our nation will be 238 years old on July 4th. What an amazing and wonderful country we live in. Our country is second to none in the freedoms and quality of life available to every one of its citizens. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

The following is a brief excerpt from our July 4, 1776 Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"

Thanks to Barbara and Elmer Anderson and Verna Brown for helping to organize the City of Arlington’s Fourth of July parade. LSR VCCA is again participating in this wonderful and fun event. Eileen and I have participated with the LSR group for the last five years (the Camaro got sick just before, "thank goodness", one of the parades and refused to start). The crowds are wonderful and very appreciative of the parade participants. It’s a wonderful experience. I think this year we have 8 cars participating. If you haven’t done this sort of thing I encourage you to get involved. You never know what Barbara or Verna will be wearing!!!

We are just past midway through the year and have some important dates coming up.

  • September 18 -20 Area 6 Joint Tour, Albuquerque, NM -- We need to determine who will be going so we can plan a convoy of those want to drive together.
  • September 26-27 Swap Meet at Traders Village -- We need to make our final push for vendors and attendees in order to reach our goal of filling the 460 spaces available. Suggestions and ideas are welcome, just contact Don Newhouse or any member of the committee.
  • November 9 Election of 2015 Officers, Luncheon and Bingo -- If you haven’t served, or if it’s been a while since you served, it’s time to step up and fill a position on the Board. New leadership breeds new ideas and with new ideas comes change which presents us with opportunities.
  • December 13 Christmas Party at Rolling Hills Country Club. Eileen will be looking for assistance in putting the finishing touches on the Christmas Party.

Let’s keep praying for rain and give our thanks when we get it. Much of our State is desperate for rain.

Let’s keep the wheels rolling on our old cars whenever possible and enjoy them often.

Thank you.
