John Archer thanked all the volunteers and participants at the car show which was a great success.  Also, thanked everyone for attending the meeting.


 J.C. gave the Treasurer's Report.   


One more time Mary Ann blessed us with some words of wisdom:

. When you get up in a morning give thanks for the gift of another day.


After being prompted by John C. John Archer reported the website is current.


Mike Hall gave an update on the event at the fair.  It will be on August 14th Governors day only - 9:30 to 4 PM.


August Birthdays:  J.C. Hardy.  Happy Birthday J. C.


Celebrating their anniversary in August are:  Francee and Ed Brown their 46th and Kay and Mike Cantrall their 51st.  Congratulations.


J.C. thanked everyone who helped with the car show, he also announced that this was the last year that he and Marica would be in charge of the show.  He made a motion that we give the clubs share of the registration fee to the New Berlin Fire Department.  In past years the agreement was the club and fire department split the registration fee 50/50.  After a considerable amount of discussion, the motion was voted on 11 yes votes and 21no votes. Motion failed. 

John C. will discuss with the fire department to determine if they would still want to hold a show next year, if so, a new committee head will be appointed. 


A huge thank you to J.C. and Marcia who have put in a great amount of time over the past 18 year heading up the show.  Each year the show has been a huge success due to your efforts.
