PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR OCTOBER 2020
Fall is in the air and the transition from summer is finally
recognizable. Aside from that, not much else has changed lately
…unfortunately. There is a bit of club business to cover this month. You
may be aware there is an election coming up soon. That’s right but
actually there are three elections. First, (for CTCI members) the election
for Delegates is ongoing and you are probably aware Bill Brown is
running for Region 4 Delegate. If you have not voted yet please get on
it. There’s not much time left and it is important to make your voice
The second election on the horizon is for VCTC officers.
Traditionally right about now we solicit volunteers for the nominating
committee and anyone interested in running. Since this year is mostly a
blank slate from a club business perspective, current officers have
discussed the idea of extending for another year and all current officers
are willing. If there’s consensus among club members we will execute
that plan. I will work with Steve to set up an email for voting yes/no to
this proposal in the near future.
Everyone should be aware club events through October have been
cancelled. We are still considering options for the November and
December meetings and will get information out very soon regarding
plans. Watch for a separate email or check the club website for
information or cancellation notice.
There is an opportunity to get out and support the Historic
Fredericksburg AACA if you would like to do so. J. Brown is looking for
classic cars to participate in the Prince Michel Winery's fall festival on
Saturday, October 10, in Leon, Virginia (http://princemichel.com). If
interested, let him know as soon as possible. firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s about it for this month. Oops…remember election #3! I
encourage everyone to make sure you vote in the upcoming
Presidential election. In-person voting is available right now in your
municipality and absentee ballots can be requested for another few
weeks. Additional information is available at www.elections.virginia.gov
Until next month, stay well and be safe.
All the best!
