Director Bill Jabs called the meeting to order at 7:30 pm and reintroduced new member Dave Wolmer.  Bill said that Dave would be giving his “Getting to Know You” talk at the end of the meeting.


Secretary’s Report:  A motion was passed to dispense with reading last month’s meeting minutes.


Treasurer’s Report:  Treasurer Howard Freedman reported a gross treasury balance of approximately $23,000 and said that he would be in contact with Secretary Larry Cox to report an exact amount.  Howard emailed Larry a gross balance of $29,815.55 of which $24,005.15 are fall tour receipts - the net balance is therefore $5,810.40.


Sunshine Report:  Evelyn Freedman was not present but Bill Jabs reported that she had been in the hospital for several days and was now in a rehab center regaining her strength.  Howard gave details of Evelyn’s hospitalization.

Bill also reported that several Oregon CCCA members attended JoAnne Gilman’s memorial service on Sunday the 30th. Howard said that Orville Crull had attended JoAnne’s service though he had also been in the hospital recently.  Orville is now back home recuperating and Mona Marsh is seeing to it that Orville 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 soon.


Membership Report:  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.


Evening Program:  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.
