                PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR JUNE 2020


 

Greetings everyone.

The temperatures are rising and days 
growing longer and I’m hopeful

things will continue to improve allowing g
reater mobility and

socialization.

That said, it is apparent there’s a long 
and winding road ahead. Car

shows and other similar events continue to be 
cancelled or postponed

until later in the year. We are discussing plans 
for our July club event

and expect to get word out soon about the 
meeting. Stay optimistic!

 


Cancellation of car shows, restrictions on eating establishments and

group gatherings, and continuation of “stay home” recommendation


definitely changes traditional summer activities. Here are a few links

you can 
check out with the extra time you may have at home as a result.

There are many more but these are just a few of the available Auto

Museum tours on YouTube:

July is still a bit away but mark July 10…Collector Car Appreciation

Day on your calendar. This will be the 11
th year for the “holiday” which is

marked by U.S. Congressional Resolution which 
recognizes collecting

and restoring classic cars as an important part of 
preserving the cultural

heritage of the U.S. I’ll watch for and provide 
updates next month…

currently there are plans for cruise-ins in 
Richmond and Smithfield.

Organizers are also considering virtual 
events. Hopefully weather and

COVID-19 policies will be favorable.



If you have an opportunity to take a drive in your classic, be sure to

give 
it a good safety check before going out if it’s been sitting for a while.

If 
necessary, there’s a short checklist in the Tech section of the VCTC

website. Until the next opportunity to get together, stay well and be

safe.


 

All the best!
 

Eric
 

VCTC President
