Club members Tom & Barbara Collins along with Guy & Cindy Wilson traveled to Arizona to meet members Stan & Mary Zdeb for the Barrett Jackson auction. Aside from the auction the group also took a tour of a local Amazon distribution center. While no one brought home a new prized possession from the auction, a good time was had by all.
I want to thank the Honk Rattle and Roll Members’ who attended the March Dine Out Night on Tuesday March 19th for switcheroo from one restaurant to another. Considering the last minute changes, most followed through and found the group eating at CiCi’s pizza. We still had a great turnout with 41 attending. The food was good and the conversation and fellowship even better. Thanks also to Tom & Pearl Vasser for taking club pictures for this activity in the absence of Arleen Timbs.
See the pictures below.
Our Christmas Gathering, the last activity of 2018, was another great success! There were 86 members in attendance who shared the abundance of food, beverages and FUN!!! Thanks to Melanie Collins and Barbara Collins for planning / hosting this activity. Special thanks to Ronnie & Donna Barrett and Carol Berning for the great sing along which included Carol’s revised version of 12 days of Christmas, Matt Wilson for the running video of activities of 2018 and Cindy & Rick for handling 50/50 drawing. We were thankful for so many volunteers helping with set up and clean up. Can Good Drive for Nourish Food Bank of Rutherford County was good with 274 and 3 gifts donated. Below you will find pictures by HRR Club Photographer Arleen Timbs and others. The last picture is your HRR Board Members for 2019.
We`re looking forward to another year of FUN with each other and our cars.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Honk Rattle and Roll members!
19th Annual Christmas Party was held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church`s new Fellowship Hall. We had 84 club members attended and we expected nine more, but winter illness kept them away. New this year was a collection for Can Goods and Toys for Tots to donate to local charities. We collected 270 food Items and 51 packages of toys that will bring Christmas smiles to many kids.The food was great and as usual a great variety. We were entertained by the newly formed HRR choir and all members joined in, directed by Ronnie B. As the activities increase, the board is seeing the need for a small budget to cover expenses that have been donated in the past, we started a 50/50 drawing to help defray ongoing costs for 2018 and was well received. Our goal remains the same, to avoid local dues. We will prepare a budget and present it to you soon. Rick Jones and Cindy Stewart donated a jar filled with chocolate and won by Cathy McKinley. She guessed the closest number without going over. Carol Hughes donated a door prize of a Chevrolet Christmas Garage that was won by Tom Vasser. Thanks to Mike & Jackie Freeman for giving anyone interested, 2 free tickets for the Renaissance Castle Festival for May 5th or 6th. He also left some extras for members that were not able to attend the Christmas party. (contact Russ Barnes or Tom Collins for these tickets). Matt and Amy Wilson prepared our video that ran all evening. Thanks to everyone for your help and attendance. You’ve made this activity GREAT!!
