Message from the President

Greetings ‘A’ club members

I would like to extend my appreciation to all those that gave your time to help in making our annual swapmeet event a tremendous success. My special thanks to Tom for filling in for our swapmeet ‘Guru’ John. ‘Shoeless’ Ron was also an important contributor as he was recovering from toe surgery. ‘Big John’ was slowed down by major surgery, but was still able to lend his expertise to Tom and his volunteers.

Our fabulous chicken dinner and pancake breakfast wowed the crowd of vendors and visitors. I heard a couple of great comments from a few vendors and visitors. “This is what makes me come here every year, it's well organized, great people and a great meal! I look forward to the swapmeet every year and I came all the way from Tulare! My thanks for the great hospitality.” So with that, thank you for all your help.

Once again this year, I had a love affair with the grill. My thanks to our ‘mess sergeant’ Cheri for running a smooth kitchen and serving a great fried chicken dinner. To Sheri for taking charge of the cash box and keeping the line running smoothly. That a way A team! It was a great pleasure working with all of you.

At the board meeting our Treasurer reported a healthy addition to our club budget and treasury funds. Our TYHTB is at Antoinette’s Italian Bistro this month. This young lady is one of our sponsors. She is just starting out on her own business. Afterwards those wishing to view the San Bernardino air fest will enjoy the planes and aerial demonstrations. Sounds like a lot of excitement.

Up coming tours will include a train trip to the La Brea tar pits, also the Vista Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum.
