December 2019 newsletter.
17 members at the November meeting. Treasurer reports $2678.00 in the bank, which sounds like a lot, but most of that will be used to fund the startup costs of the Springfest Car Show. Club voted to donate $100 each to Operation Christmas, Helping Hands, and Shop with a Cop. Threshers show had a low turnout, and they asked the GTA to reduce our cost to run the show, Club voted to keep our fee unchanged. Kenny Jett talked about the Honorflite, and reported GTA will be a primary sponsor for one of the trips for the veterans this year. We also discussed the possibility of donating a statue Rick Durrough provided for the silent auction which did not sell. Kenny will ask the local VFW’s if they want the statue. Jim and Sherry will make Christmas cards for all our sponsors, we will try to have them for the Christmas party so the members can see them and sign. Mike Riefer asked that anyone wanting to accept duties of the president come to the January meeting, he will be glad to continue, but would like to give some new blood a chance. We also discussed the possibility of having an Event Chair to help organize more club activities such as the club going on cruises, shows and other events as a group. So if you have ideas let us know. We set three dates so far for 2020, March 14th Lick’em and Stick’em, club mailing, and we will cook wings for the club Springfest April 25th on mainstreet Owensville July 11th Honorflite at the White Mule Winery Christmas Party is December 14th at Gary Murphy’s shop off Highway EE in Owensville, we will eat around 5:00pm, we will start cooking and hanging out around 3:00pm.

It was just before Christmas and the magistrate was in a happy mood. He asked the prisoner who was in the dock, ‘What are you charged with?’ The prisoner replied, ‘Doing my Christmas shopping too early.’ ‘That’s no crime’, said the magistrate. ‘Just how early were you doing this shopping?’ ‘Before the shop opened’, answered the prisoner. According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should have known… ONLY women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
