It has been a long stretch with no significant club events. This is the result of the confluence of winter and the Coronavirus pandemic. Today we broke the necessary but unloved quarantine. About a dozen of our members drove their antique cars by the home of our much loved member, Jim Varas, who passed a way a short while ago. His wonderful wife Peggy was on the front lawn greeting us as we filed by to show our respect and love for Jim. It was obvious that Peggy was very happy to see us as we were to see her. Our love goes out to her at this difficult time.
We then left Pawcatuck, CT and headed for Groton Long Point, passing through Varas Square on the way. We regrouped at a local park and waited for another group of friends and relatives of club member John Curtiss who was turning 80 that day. A couple of trucks sported Happy Birthday signs and one man passed out golf balls to be tossed on John's Lawn. The procession finally took off and wound its way past John's home to wish him a happy 80th. John was all smiles! I believe this is one birthday he will cherish.
