December Members Meeting:  John Carpenter called the 367th Members' Meeting of the Cool Cruisers Car Club to order at 6:55PM.  John thanked the Christmas Party committee of Deb Pellegrini, Jane Mihalich, Sindy Landreth and Jack Germann and the By-Laws update committee of Jim Mihalich, Ryan Miller and John Carpenter for all their time and effort. 


John Archer, J. C. Hardy, Jim Mihalich and Duane Weiss met to turn over the treasure’s material to Jim from J.C.  John balanced the check book from July through the end of November, all in order.  J.C. had prepared a list of items he was turning over to Jim, we all reviewed, signed off on the items and had the document notarized.


Thank you, J.C., for the many years and hard work you have done for the club.
