Hello Club Members,
With sadness, we lost one of our long term club members last week. Windell Stevens passed away on Sept. 4th at 4:04 pm from an extended illness. Our hearts go out to Rita and all of the Stevens family. Funeral arrangements are Thursday, Sept.13th, visitation from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Funeral services are Friday, Sept. 14th from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. Both visitation and funeral services are at The First Church of the Nazarene, 2734 S. Washington Street in Kokomo. Our club has made a donation to Honor Flight in Windell's honor. Check older club rosters for Rita's address to send your condolences, or go to www.stoutandsons.com to send an online condolence.
We certainly have been busy lately. August 18th was Ken and Di's Hog Roast at Pretty Lake. It was a beautiful day, with tons of food, lots of sunshine, a band, what more could you ask for. Attending were club members Helen and Larry Kwolek, Greg and Amy Minnich, our hosts, Ken and Di, and myself.
Next up, although not an official club event was August 25th, The Motor Works Car Show at the old GE complex. With rain that morning, we had light attendance, but showing up were Kevin and Diane Mark, Larry and Helen Kwolek, and Roger Noll. All three retro Thunderbirds won an award in the 'Modern Cars' category. Congratulations to all.
Next was again just a local show, not an official club event. The All Ford Car Show at City Ford in Columbia City. It sure was nice to see a show with just Fords, Lincoln's and Mercury's. Not one CHEVY in sight. We had good attendance from the club with Eugene Serwatka, 1955 Thunderbird, Greg Minnich, 1955 Thunderbird, Bill and Donna Honor, Australian Falcon, Keith Landis, 1963 Thunderbird Convertible, Bob Tucker, 1960 Thunderbird Hardtop, Bud Gibson, 1964 Mercury Monterey Convertible, and Roger Noll, 1966 Thunderbird Convertible. There were some very interesting cars there including Mustangs of all years and models, a 1960 Edsel sedan, a custom 1954 Lincoln, a 1959 Skyliner retractable Hardtop and a Model T. It was the first car show for City Ford, and we hope that this was a learning experience for them. They only gave out 4 awards. One car won twice. Oh well, it was a fun day and we didn't get rained on.
Our next club event was to be on Sept. 8th, The Kendalville Car Show in beautiful downtown Kendaltucky. Unfortunately once again, Mother Nature had different plans with cold, wind, and rain nearly all day. It seems to be a common re-occurrence this year.
The Lawton Park Car Show that was rained out has been rescheduled for Sept. 15th. The Show is from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. We will meet at the Burger King on the point of Spy Run Ave. and N. Clinton Street at 8:00 am to caravan there. We haven't done this show for a couple of years and used to have great attendance. Our car show season is winding down, so 'Let's get the flock out.'
That's all the news from Hoosierland. COME FLY WITH US!
