August 2021

Hello Club Members,


Where the heck did July go?  It seemed to flash by in the blink of an eye.  I wish January would pass by so quickly.  We sure are having some beautiful weather this week though. 


Our last club event was July 31st, The Rock The Fort Car Show held at SweetCars in the Fort.  We had a nice representation of Thunderbirds there including Greg Minnich, 1955 Thunderbird, Gary Nordman, 2002 Thunderbird, Gina Rodriguez, 2003 Thunderbird, Lowell Lepper 1955 Thunderbird, Gerald Germann,  2002 Thunderbird, and Larry and Helen Kwolek, 2003 James Bond Edition Thunderbird and myself in my 1966 Thunderbird.  Congratulations to Lowell and Larry, winning awards in the Top 40.


Our next event will be: 


August 7th WHEELS AND WEINERS CRUISE-IN at the Conservation Club at Pretty Lake 4410 S. 890 East, Wolcottville, IN.  46795..  Hosts are Club Members Ken and Di Hensch.  11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  After the show we will head to The Shady Nook for an early dinner.  This will take the place of our usual Club Picnic.  We can meet at Hall's Hollywood Restuarant at 10:15 if you want to caravan there.  (I have a family reunion that day so Keith can lead you there.  I will try to catch up with you at the Shady Nook.)  We need a head count for the Shady Nook by August 1st.  Send to me and I will inform Di.


August 22nd LUNCH AND CRUISE ABOARD THE LILY PAD at Lake Wawasee.  (Let's hope for good weather.)  IF you are caravanning there, we will meet at The Marathon Gas Station at W. Washington Center Rd. and US 33 North at 9:30 AM.  If you are North of the Fort, we will meet you there.  Bring friends, relatives, but we need a head count and need to know if you are meeting us at the Frog or plan to caravan with us from the Fort.   WE NOW HAVE AROUND 45 MEMBERS AND GUESTS SIGNED ON TO ATTEND.  IF YOU HAVEN'T SIGNED ON AS YET, PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP!


For some reason when I talk to club members, they don't seem to know what is going on in the club.  We have a Website with an events calendar on it to keep you informed.  We also have a Facebook page where we post reminders there.  If you go to our Facebook page, you can see a video of The Rock the Fort Car Show.  Thanks to club members Bill Honor and Gina Rodriguez.   



We had 10 or 11 members attend the Celebration of Life for Darrell Will.  Thank you, Sue and family, for inviting us.  It was a very special time and it was nice to share memories of Darrell.  They sent us home with a packet of seeds to plant for ourselves in memory of him.  It was very touching. 

NEW MEMBERS, please welcome Bruce and Karen Stopher from Harlen, Indiana.  They are the owners of a 1955 Thunderbird.  Glad to have you on board!  We are looking forward to meeting you!
