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.
