Most events, rallies’, autocross, car shows, have been canceled through June. Please check the MWR website for daily updates. The Memorial Day Regional Fundraiser May 23-25 is canceled.

The region is asking all clubs to submit regional recognition. Our club does lots of community service! Let’s get something to Larry Pagliaro for some club recognition….bell ringers, shoe fund, car show, etc. Rich has forms in the FAQ folder! The information will be published in the Blue Bars magazine.

It was discussed at the meeting that membership renewals would be mailed to the RMD no later than November 7th. This not only helps me process renewals but helps with yearend bookkeeping. Please have your renewals to Tracy so they can be submitted by October meeting.

Please be safe!
