was now in a rehab center regaining her strength.

is getting the best of care.
Activities & Tours Reports:
Bill Jabs said that the Forest Grove Concours and the
Tippy Canoe cruise-in had both been very good and he
reminded us that the next events are the Orenco Station
car show on August 5th and the Lake Oswego
car show on August 27th.
Howard Freedman reported that the Fall Tour is fast
approaching (September 9th thru 16th)
and that in spite of a few lodging and meal changes all
is on track. He said that there had been a member
cancelation that was quickly filled by Paul & Rosanne
Hunt from Texas. The Hunts have toured with us on one
other occasion in the past.
Newsletter Editor’s Report:
Newsletter editor Larry Schick was not present but
Howard Freedman said that Larry told him that the summer
edition of the Hood Release would be out
Membership chairman Bill Price had no new news to
report. Bill mentioned that Joe Santana of the Packard
Club had worked very hard on arrangements for the Orenco
Station car show and Bill encouraged us to participate.
Bill Jabs called on our newest member, Dave Wolmer, as
our “Getting to Know You” speaker. Dave’s presentation
concentrated primarily on his interest in vintage cars
and how his collection had grown since starting with a
very early Model T Ford that he and his father worked on
together. Dave clearly has the bug.
Dave presentation brought up the subject of finding a
good chrome shop so there was a long discussion on that
and other car related subjects.
Bill Jabs adjourned the meeting at 7:55 pm.
