President’s Message

August 2022

Those who were not at our July Meeting missed a great program.  Fred Spivey talked about his grandfather Charles McCandless (who was a former member of the club) about his cars and a little history of the Charles McCandless Tile Company.  He shared his fond memories as a boy of participating in events with his grandfather.  Garrett Green knew Charles and was able to share some information.
We had a great Garage Sale Tour on Saturday, July 23rd.  Rich led the tour and did a lot of research on sales and had maps.  Rich and Marie Von Karvaly both brought donuts.  The attendees were less than other years.  Lunch was at Arthur’s on Tustin.
Be sure to attend our upcoming meetings: ➢    August 9th will be Marlin Clark who will share his experience of competing in “The 1948 Soapbox Derby” local races in Sydney, Nebraska, and then in the nationals in Akron, Ohio.  He will bring his soap box derby car to the meeting. ➢    September 13th will be Bob Wank, a retired Sergeant with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department who will talk about his 9/11 experience at Ground Zero with his K-9 companion, Aris.  ➢    October 11th – Bruce Junor will be our speaker. While a Ford Motor Company employee, he worked closely with Carrol Shelby in the development of the Mustang GT350 muscle car.  Hope you are enjoying the hot summer. Jean
