The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from MIKE McNULTY, CPA-PCA President
Hello, Central Pa members, guests and visitors,
August….the slowing down of our summer activities but the beginning of school and the hint of cooler temps and the next change of seasons. I was not able to attend the July meeting as I was under the weather but I am on the mend and looking forward to our September meeting to wrap up some old business and to close the last 4 months strongly. As our region continues to grow we are always looking for new ideas and volunteers for club activities!
The Charity Committee and the Budget committee have met and established our nominees for the 2015/2016 donations. If you are interested in volunteering and being on either committee we can always use more help on both of these important committees.
The new member’s party is still in the works. With me being under the weather for about 2 weeks it has delayed plans but we will be moving ahead when I can get the list together and send out the dates for each event. This will be for new members who have joined in 2014 and 2015 with RSVP’s required.
With the summer winding down we will have the Porsche Polo event to look forward to in September. It’s a fun filled day and a great event. If you are planning to attend mark your calendars and arrive early for a good parking spot and you can enjoy the day under our Porsche Club tent!
Thanks again to the Wahlberg’s for planning another great Crab Feast and thank you again to our hosts the Lancaster Liederkranz for a marvelous venue.
The Charity Committee and the Budget committee have met and established our nominees for the 2015/2016 donations. We were not able to complete the necessary clubs approval in August as we did not have a quorum of our executive board in attendance at the August meeting. We will take up this action again during our September meeting. If you are interested in volunteering and being on either committee we can always use more help on both of these important committees.
Fall dates are being worked on for AX. Now that the fall calendar is clearer with the AHL getting their scheduling done we should hopefully see some dates becoming available in the fall. If anyone has a connection for a lot large enough to host our AX’s please reach out to me so we can pursue that lead. We are still working with HERCO to secure more slots on the Giant Center lot. Again check the website as more dates become available.
The summer DE schedule is winding down and the fall calendar is booked. Check the newsletter to find out about the fall events and how you can participate in them for the remainder of 2015 and into 2016. They fill up fast and are well attended by our members so if you are interested reach out to Steve Baun and get on his email list and find out what your car needs from a technical perspective so you are ready to DE when the opportunity presents itself in your schedule.
Check out Cars and Chocolate in Hershey at the Cocoa Beanery. Lots of fun and interesting cars! I saw Tim March had another Cars and Coffee event planned. Check in the Sprecher and your emails for the locations and times. We have Cars and Coffee EAST and WEST so check the calendar for that month’s event and join in the fun.
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.
Since I was on the ‘DL’ list for about 2 weeks it’s nice to be getting back into a more normal routine. Several of our members are dealing with some daunting health issues currently. When folks say if you don’t have your health you are always struggling day today they are spot on in their comments. Take the time to be thankful for all we have and for good health.
Be safe, be well.
