The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from IAN TAGGART, CPA-PCA President
With the closure of this year and the commencement of 2014 there has been a substantial shift in the club’s mentality towards charities and the desire for the club to present itself as something more than just a club about cars and going fast. Over the years, the club has participated in charitable events and the donating spirit has never diminished. However, since September, the club’s charity and support of programs that are about learning, rebuilding lives, and hopefully once forgotten P-cars has reached new heights. Examples of this new vigor is evident in the scholarships to the Thaddeus School where two students will benefit from the club’s donation as well as camaraderie as they pursue their educational and vocational skills in restoration and revitalization of an old P-car.
In continuing the spirit of building friendships, camaraderie, and the fun one can experience as a Porsche owner or aficionado, my thanks goes to all the members, those mentioned and not, who organized numerous driving, social events, and other club events. Steve Baun, Alan Pozner, Tim March, Rich Geiner, Mark Curtis, Paul Rouse, Don Moore, Al Peinhardt, Tony Miller, and to all the volunteers who, without their participation, these events would be a lot more difficult to organize and complete with the high success rate the club has been known to achieve.
In closing, I shall remind all of the monthly meetings at the Liederkranz, which occur the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm for dinner and 7:00 pm for the meetings. Remember, the members of the club drive the club and continue the unstoppable momentum of the club and the Porsche spirit.
In closing, thank you for letting me be president this year and living the experiences, I shall never forget. November brings Thanksgiving, remember to give thanks those in the armed forces, local EMS members, and to those who are in your lives as well as those who are no longer.
Be safe in all your endeavors, remember to embrace and not fear life, and I wish all of you Happy Holidays and the best the new year has to offer.
Happy Porsche Motoring,
