Ladies’ Day: Car Show & Spa Day

Something new! This year, it’s on a Friday at Tranquility Salon & Wellness Center, 257 Penrose Place (717) 218-8732. They are available for services which must be scheduled prior to March 18 in order to guarantee your space/service and time. Tell them when you call that you are with the AACA car show. Their website will provide you information on services:

Services to consider: Salt cave meditation; Ion Foot Detox Cleanse; Paraffin Hand Dips; Ear Candling; Infrared Sauna; Facials, Nail Services; Fingers & Toes Therapy; Massages; and the list goes on. So checkout the website and give them a call to get the time period that you want….it will be a first come first serve basis. They open at 9AM and close at 6PM on a Friday…although we are running the car show until 2PM only.

THIS IS A FREE EVENT—you decide how much you want to spend for the day. Cars will meet and park at Dairy Queen, 221 Penrose Place, Carlisle. New registers, call Pat Shaffer 717 258-4964 and feel free to leave a voicemail.

Gals, please bring a pair of your shoes. Something you wore at some point in your life —don’t care how old or young you were or even if they still fit you currently. We will not destroy them or alter them in any way…they are safe. But place them in a brown paper bag, if you have one without markings, and don’t share with other family members beforehand whose they are. Let’s see how many remember…and we will have some fun.

Eats are on your own. Spend what you want when you want. Dairy Queen usually has some nice specials and Tranquility is within walking distance. This is a rain or shine event. Bring a chair along and we will have a tent, too. Want to entice your fellow car friends? Bring a board game or cards to share. Let’s see how the day develops. Come share time with our car friends, relax, enhance your health, smile, laugh and ENJOY!

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!
