Show Time! 4 John Marsh Hiya Kids! As you read this, we are about to enjoy a lazy, busy, relaxing, hectic summer.
The Len Immke Arthritis Foundation Show is upon us. Tom Kromer still needs help with judging. After the AFS show, the next big club event will be at John & Alice Westfall 9s farm.
I hope to see lots of you at both places. We will be spending time washing and waxing our cars and taking them out for rides, shows, errands, and just for the fun of it. When you have your cars out on the road, don 9t forget to promote the club!
We and our cars are the best advertisement for the club. At the Haydocy show, I met several Buick owners who were not members of the club, but who may join as a result of simply meeting and chatting. You never know when a chance encounter might turn into a new member for the club and a new friend for all of us.
On behalf of the club, I want to thank Mike & Nancy Book for putting together the car show at Haydocy Pontiac / Buick / GMC. As a result of the show, about 65 ... more. less.
cars and their owners spent the afternoon together. The show raised money for the Buick and LaSalle / Cadillac clubs and the Juvenile Diabetes Association.<br><br> Thank you Mike and Nancy! Since we traditionally have no July meeting because of the Arthritis Foundation Show, we won 9t get much done between the AFS and The Farm. I hope to see lots of you at the AFS show and at the best Buick meeting spot on Earth, The Farm.<br><br> In the mean time, keep your Buicks shined, tuned, and on the road. Maybe we 9ll see each other! Have a great summer.<br><br> 4Director and Old World Puppeteer T HE H ORN Central Ohio Chapter of the Buick Club of America Volume 34, Issue 5 July 2007 © In this Issue: 1 Show Time! 2 Arthritis Show 3 June minutes 4 Buick SWAS 5 Announcements 8 ClassiMed Ads Upcoming Events: 6 37 July 2007 Arthritis Foundation 9s 25th Annual Classic Auto Show and Cruise-In Dublin, OH 3 35 August 2007 Buick Horsepower Nationals Hebron, Ohio 9 312 August 2007 2007 Great Lakes Regional Grand Island, New York 3rd weekend in August (Sat or Sun) Club Meeting at John and Alice Westfall 9s Farm Details to follow Pete Dunkel shows off his trophy from the Haydocy Pontiac / Buick / GMC show.
