Hello Club Members, 


Well at least this month you won't have to listen to me complaining about not having sunshine, no heat, and too much rain. I am sure that you have noticed that we, along with most of the Midwest, are near drought conditions. As it goes in Indiana, this too will pass. 


May 21st was Thunderbird Appreciation Day throughout the land.  Here in the Fort, we did our best to show off our Thunderbirds by attending a local Cruise-In at The Liberty Diner.  Joining us were club members Gary Nordman, from Auburn in his Torch Red retro Bird, Larry Sneary in his 1958 White Thunderbird Hardtop, Phil Walter from Goshen driving his 1964 White/Blue Thunderbird Convertible, Gerry and Melodee Bowlby from New Paris driving their stunning 1962 Grey Thunderbird Hardtop(It was good to put a face to the name)and Dan Higgins riding shotgun with me in my 2004 Merlot.  Several of us went inside for our evening meal. 


It was such a beautiful day and I was somewhat surprised that we didn't have a better turnout, but I for one appreciated those who made it out.   

For those of you who may have not heard, club members Bryan and Sara Provines have decided to put their awesome 1958 Thunderbird up for sale. Those unfamiliar with this car should know that it is a beautiful turquoise and white hardtop with matching interior.  Bryan says that they are still going to be club members, but it is time to get another classic. I would hate to see this one go too far from us, so if you are interested in adding to your collection, contact Bryan.  You can see pictures of it on our face book page. 


Since we don't have a lot planned for the month of June (Cars & Coffee in Auburn 6-11)  

 I propose that we add The Canal Days Car Show on June 9th 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the New Haven High School.  So that we can park together, let's meet at Hall's parking lot on 930 at 4:45 pm.  It has been several years since we attended this show.   

It appears that we will have around 10 members attend the Thunderbird Reunion in Dearborn, Mi. on August 22-27.  We have been asked to help supply the Hospitality Suite and to help park cars on Saturday at Ford World Headquarters.  (I am looking for volunteers.) 

Be sure to check out our website Events Page to keep track of our upcoming events.  


Best Regards,  

Roger Noll, President
