Installation Dinner 2020

The executive board of the Gettysburg Region has found it difficult to find a banquet location to host our event due to PA Covid restrictions.

         We are happy to announce that the EMMR has agreed to open the museum for our event on the first Saturday of February 2021.

         Our social hour will be from 12pm until 1pm Saturday, February 6th, 2021 after which we will have a catered dinner. Cost will be $20.00 per person, with your Region picking up all expenses above this amount. Due to the Covid restrictions, we will not have any entertainment following the installation of officers.

We hope the afternoon event timing will allow attendance for those who do not like to drive after dark. Deadline to register is Friday, January 22nd, 2021. Registration in the Nov-Dec issue of The Gas Buggy Gazette. Please call Karl or Mary Krouch at 717-697-9543 with questions or call with any near deadline additions to the count if you’re mailing monies late.

Please stay home if you are not feeling well or exhibiting any signs or symptoms of the flu. We want everyone to have a safe and healthy end to winter.

Annual Dinner 2020– a look back

–Saturday, February 1, 2020

Always held right before the National AACA Convention, this event is our region’s opportunity to install officers for the New Year and show our appreciation for our members. The committee–Ron Green, Karl Krouch and Ed Rogers–did a great job of planning the evening. Held once again at the Lower Allen VFW Post #7530, attendees got to enjoy a buffet dinner and entertainment from The Klineklaus Duo who played “jazz and popular music with a groove” from the 50’s to the 70’s. They were a hit and, wouldn’t you know it, they also have an interest in cars!

Honored guests for the evening included AACA Executive Vice President Jim Elliot, AACA Executive Director Steve Moskowitz, and AACA Museum Executive Director Jeff Bleimeister. Jim and Steve both gave exciting updates about the national club, the new headquarters, the convention in Philly, and the recent purchase of the Free Library of Philadelphia’s auto archives by the AACA Library. Jeff also graciously spoke about the museum and the new “Age of Aquarius” exhibit. He also talked about the importance of the museum’s volunteers, some of whom are Gettysburg Region members including Bob And Dottie Shultz.

The most important part of the evening was the installation of officers in which the gavel was passed from President Annette Yost to new President Bon Barlup. Other new officers for 2020 include Karl Krouch as Vice President, Deb Sherwood as Secretary and Al Maybee as Treasurer. Also, Jim Yemzow and Pat Shaffer were given the Outstanding Service Award for 2019.
