Since most weather reports are telling us to expect a fair amount of snow this Tuesday, March 14th, please note that the board meeting has been cancelled! Stay home, drink some hot cocoa, and be safe. We still plan on having a Founders Tour meeting on the 23rd.
Once again, the AACA held its Annual Meeting in Philadelphia at the Sheraton Hotel from February 9th – 11th. However, Gettysburg Region members got to experience one slight change, as we had our own booth at the trade show!
That’s right. The 2017 Founders Tour is creeping closer, and closer. So, to get the word out about what we all know is going to be a fabulous week, our Tour Chair and Co-chair, Howard King and Annette Yost showed up early on Thursday to set up. With our banner hanging high, visitors to the booth got to view a slideshow highlighting some of the tour’s events, ask questions, take a brochure on the tour or a flyer about the Latimore Valley show, or maybe just grab a piece of candy (always a good “hook”).
Also, thanks to Destination Gettysburg, we held a drawing for a signed print of the historic Gettysburg train station. It was a huge hit, and we would like to congratulate Linda MacFarland who got to take this beautiful work of art home.
By the time Saturday afternoon rolled around, so many people had stopped by the booth that every single brochure was gone! Lots of folks seemed extremely enthusiastic about all that we have planned, and some have already booked their hotel room. If you happen to be one of these eager beavers, please make sure you send in your request for registration information to the AACA National Headquarters as soon as possible. Some registration packets have already been sent out. We have 150 spaces to fill.
Al’s Pizza, 6 Tristan Dr., Dillsburg, PA, has extended an invitation our members to participate in a monthly cruise-in/car show to be held at the restaurant the first Saturday of each month from April through December.
In April, Nov. & Dec. the hours will be 1:00 – 4:00PM. From May through October, the hours will be 4:00 – 7:00PM.
Enjoy good food, meet new people, and get those beautiful cars out of the garage and on the road!
