President’s Message

This is the month, or at least the first two-thirds of the month, to eat light and save up on calories in preparation for that big Thanksgiving meal and family weekend of overeating.

Dave has another great tour planned on the 16th.  Also plan to join us for the December 7th Holiday Light Tour (details later). I was glad that a number of our members got to see the Big Boy steam locomotive last October 12th, what a giant!

As the coming days are shorter, the days are most often cooler and more beautiful leading to good times for bundling up and getting together for a T run out to lunch or breakfast. Do not hesitate to call someone in the “T” family for a short Flivver run.

The November 12th General Meeting will give you a chance to volunteer for a 2020 board position or just vote and show your support for the folks you want to run your show next year. This is the most important meeting of the year. So, please join us. We are so sad to hear of the passing of old club members John Hale and Dave Nickey.

NOVEMBER SPEAKER:  Author Steve Snyder will speak about his father who was part of a crew shot down in WWII flying a B-17. His book SHOT DOWN is the winner of 20 national book awards. It is set within the framework of World War II in Europe and recounts the dramatic experiences of each member of a ten man B-17 bomber crew after their plane, piloted by the author’s father, was knocked out of the sky by German fighters over the French/Belgian border on February 8, 1944.

 Some men died. Some were captured and became prisoners of war. Some men evaded capture and were missing in action for months before making it back to England. Their individual stories and those of the courageous Belgian people who risked their lives to help them are all different and are all remarkable.

 Steve will have a Powerpoint presentation with his talk and signed copies of the book will be available for $25, cash or credit card.
