Sundaes at the Movies 2018

 

We kicked off 2018 with our annual ice cream social on Sunday, January 21st at the Dover Fire Hall. Our gracious hostess Roxanne Vandermark Hess did a wonderful job organizing the afternoon (and this was her first time hosting this event, too!).

In addition to the raffle and slideshows created by our photographer Ken Meyers showcasing all that we did in 2017, including the Founders Tour, there were a few new surprises. First, members were invited to wear a hat, be it old, new, or even silly. And boy did some people really deliver!

Second, we were treated to a recently unearthed treasure. Gettysburg Region member Fred Gable has been in the club since the very beginning, and as it turns out he had taken a home video back in 1953 of one the region’s very first meetings. The video was sent to the AACA Library where the librarians were able to digitize the film. As a result, both the library and our club now have a DVD copy of the short film which captures moments from the board meeting, a trip to the Gettysburg Battlefield, and even some friendly racing games between the members. Fred made sure to come out to the social on Sunday and, along with Don Barlup, provide insightful commentary. Many thanks are due to Fred, Don, and the AACA Library for helping preserve our club’s history.

Our next event will be our annual dinner featuring the installation of officers. Hope to see you there!
