Contrary to what was previously published in the Nov. 2016 newsletter, there will not be an executive board meeting in January 2017. There also will not be a general membership meeting in January.
Instead, on the night of the normal membership meeting, Wed. Jan. 25, 2017, we’re going to have a group meal and get together at Mystic Pizza II, located at the traffic circle on Rt. 2 in North Stonington. We’ll start at 6 PM. Everyone can order off of the regular menu and pay their own check.
Dues are now payable. Club local and national AACA dues are due January 1st.
First pay your national AACA dues. You can pay at the AACA website (www.aaca.org), call 717-534-1910 and pay by credit card, or mail the renewal card insert in the Sept/Oct 2016 AACA magazine titled “Antique Automobile.” The annual national renewal is $35. You can get your AACA membership number from your membership card or on the mailing label on the plastic wrapping of your Antique Automobile magazine.
After you pay your national dues you can pay your $15 Westerly/Pawcatuck region dues to treasurer Dave Calabrese at a meeting or through the mail to Dave at 40 Border Ave., Wakefield, RI 02879.
Make your checks of $15 for the W/P regional dues payable to “WPRAACA”

The club holiday party held on Sat. Dec. 10th at the Richmond Country Club was a huge success. It was an excellent full course turkey buffet in a beautiful setting. Thanks to John Leite especially for doing all negotiations.
The club and Ken Carr especially should be proud that the AACA national board has selected our club’s website as one of about 70 annual awards of excellence in web site design. We won’t know exactly which award our site will receive until February. Great job Ken!
It I sad for us to report that club member John Hodis passed away in early December 2016. John’s role in helping to run the weekly car cruise nights at Oak Harbor,Misquamicut and the Pavilion as well as the car show portion of the Misquamicut Spring and Fall festivals will be sorely missed.
