The Month Of November 2014
Friday Cruise-In, Downtown Canton GA (On Going)
ready for Canton's Downtown celebration, called "First Friday,"
which gets rolling around 4:30 PM on June 6th. They block off downtown
Canton and have a street fair with lots of classic cars. Food, cars,
friends, free time to hang out and talk the talk.
First Friday was really great. But June 6 could be the biggest and
best ever, with the combination of show cars and beautiful bikes. Activities
Director Tom Di Nucci said, "I believe if the weather holds this will
be the best one ever! Great food, music and a fun family night out."
to the large crowd expected, we are asking anyone who would like to show
their vehicle to get there by 4:30 and to please stay til 9:00 PM. With
large groups of people walking the streets, it's the only way to keep
things safe. The Hoagie Shop will be open until 8:00 that evening, so
bring the family and come on down (or UP)!
- Saturday, November
8th, 10:00 AM
Saturday, November 8th is the annual
Veterans' Day parade in downtown Atlanta. Our host, Bob Hendershott,
has arranged for us to convey the Korean War vets again this year. We will
meet downtown early in the morning at a site yet to be determined (you will
be advised closer to the event). Afterwards we will look for a good place
to have some lunch. By the way, Bob had a car accident last week, and he
was banged up some. Son Joe tells me he's going to be okay, and the car he
was riding in was NOT his '65 Eldorado. Still, I bet he would appreciate
your thoughts and prayers. More on this as soon as we pin it down, but mark
your calendars. You KNOW this is a biggie event!
9th, 10:00 AM
Sunday, November 9th. We are having
our annual Members' Appreciation Picnic in Duluth this year. The
Southeastern Railway Museum is hosting. We will meet there, and visit the
train museum, take a ride on a real train, and view the model railroading
displays that are on the grounds that weekend. We will have a picnic on the
grounds under our tent. Food and soft drinks will be supplied by the club
for those members who pre-register. You MUST send us your registration form
to be admitted for free. Please review the attached flyer, fill it out and
mail it back to Tom Di Nucci.
