April Newsletter 2014
President John was in charge of the April meeting. This was our third time to meet at Coco's. It is nice to have a private room for our group. I also noticed that people are getting more familiar with the menu and a half a dozen people have started to order some of Coco's wonderful looking desserts. I can only assume that they tasted as good as they looked since there were only empty plates on the table.
We had 13 people present this month. Those attending were; Emilia & Jim Seiferling, Henry Kirk, Ken Montgomery, Ron Southern, John McNamee, Mike & Nancy Haney, Mila & Lamar Fairchild, Mike Zamorelli, John Drago & his wife.
President John reported that he and Carl Stein have been working on where our donation to the California Auto Museum should go. No final decision has been made. John hopes to have this finalized so that a check can be presented to CAM at our June CP meeting. That meeting will be held at the museum. Please note that meeting will be on Thursday, June 19. John will arrange food for the meeting. More details will be provided at the May meeting, which will be a Coco's as usual.
John displayed his latest DeTomaso item - DeTomaso speedometer clock. He had one of the clocks available for the monthly raffle. Lamar was the lucky winner of the clock. If you would like to buy a clock, please contact John. (916-456-3809) Emilia will be swapping a DeTomaso afghan for one of the clocks. John will be donating $5 per clock to Capitol Panteras. Thank you John!
John Drago is now a Pantera owner. He found his Pantera with the help of Mike Drew. It was found in Oregon and will be delivered to California soon. Everyone needs to come to the May CP meeting at Coco's to check out the new addition to the club. Please try and drive your club car so that John's Pantera won't feel lonely in the parking lot.
Driving for Gas Money this month was won by Ken. Also in the running for the gas money were Pres. John and Lamar.
Emilia announced that her Rio Vista Soroptimist Club will be holding a Road Rally on Saturday, April 26. It should be a fun drive in the Delta. Please read the attached flier. Contact Emilia for tickets. We will most likely be in the Fiat, so your Pantera would be really special in the rally. The important thing is to get out and drive, whether it is a daily driver or a club car. We hope to see some of you in Rio Vista.
