President’s Message from MIKE McNULTY, CPA-PCA President

August 2014


Well fellow 'P' car enthusiasts it's hard to believe but we have turned the corner and are headed for home on another busy year here in central Pa. When I accepted the roll of club president I didn't think I'd be writing this month's Sprecher and reflecting on the 9 months that have gone by. We have done allot and have more to do over the next 4 or so months. Be active ask a fellow member about some of our activities. Volunteer for a committee, voice your opinions call me, email me I'd love to hear from you.

We have many fun late summer and fall activities coming up soon. Our annual Crab Feast is a week and a half away. I'd like to thank ALL of the members who make the arrangements, get the crabs, shrimp and especially the beer. You know who you are and we are all indebted to you for providing us with an outstanding event each and every year! Thank you to all of the members (not the hubby's) who make the extra yummy dishes we all enjoy every year!

Beating another idea from last month's newsletter. One was a night with the Hershey Bears and another was for a drive, dinner and night at Penn National. Let me know if either of these interests you. Without some feedback on interest we can't make arrangements for events like this since we need to secure seats and all of the necessary parking for our cars.

Check out the calendar and web site for our upcoming Fall activities. Our 3rd Polo Cup is on the books for the fall. Check with Paul Rouse if you'd like to assist or help at the event.

Cars and Coffee has more fun drives and trips in and around central Pa. Check in the newsletter and website for the dates and places. Tim March and Rick Geiner can be contacted to see what's on the agenda each month. These are a great 'vehicle'—pun intended—to get out and meet some of your fellow members in a relaxing and fun environment.

Cars & Chocolate. It takes place at the Cocoa Beanery on Sunday mornings in Hershey. Check it out if you have the opportunity. Our end of summer weather has been great, get over if you can and meet some other car folks. There are plenty of interesting cars to see. Take a nice drive on a Sunday morning and check it out.

We have the AX trailer set to be changed over and that should have been completed at the time of this month's Sprecher reaching all of you. We have some new AX fall dates so please check out the calendar and get signed up. AX is FUN and EXCITING and we only have a few more opportunities left to challenge each other and ourselves while we hone our driving skills.

There are a few DE events still on the calendar for the fall but they are most likely filled up. If you have the urge and are curious I urge you go. Even if it's a long weekend getaway with a nice drive to Watkins Glen just to check it all out. You won't be disappointed.

We are trying to finalize our plans for the annual holiday party. Contact Dale Miller with your suggestions or to assist him with the planning of this great event.

The club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at the Lancaster Liederkranz. Good food great beer great company. Don't miss an opportunity to see how the club runs. We have an Exec board and directors members meeting each month with the general membership invited. We are exploring some potential other meeting sites for a change of pace. More to come.

While writing this I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Robin Williams. To be so gifted and yet be so terribly troubled and uncomfortable in one's own skin must have been too hard for him…. so much so that he felt lost and alone. A kind word, a smile, a hug, an “I love you” are sometimes not enough when you feel as he must have. If you think someone you love or care about is perhaps not being “themselves” take a moment and ask them what's the matter…lend an understanding ear…listen perhaps you can help someone thru a difficult time.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Be safe, be well.
