HRR 2018 Christmas Gathering

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!!

November Dine Out Update

We want to thank you for another successful and memorable Dine Out Night this past Tuesday at The Bangkok Thai Cuisine. We had 55 members and guests in attendance including some new members and some members who have not dined with us for a while.

The weather was good and although the days are short and it was dark by Dine Out time, we had a number of members drive their Old Iron. As you can see from the pictures below (courtesy of Arleen Timbs), the majority of the restaurant was reserved just for HRR and the mood was very festive. Along with the good food was great conversation and fellowship.

AACA Junior Judges

Anna and Nathan Courter, children of Anthony and Michelle Courter, completed the AACA Junior Judge Training program at Hershey on Saturday, October 17th.  They did a great job during the event!  See them in action below.

October Tour Update

On Oct. 7th the Honk Rattle and Roll club made a low speed tour to Cheekwood with a light drizzle that was not predicted to arrive until after 5pm. However, just as we arrived at our destination the moisture stopped and the sun began to peak out from behind the clouds. From then on for the rest of the day it remained dry. The staff at Cheekwood was very welcoming and pleased to see our group. Not only were we provided with free admission ($20 per person value) but we were also given all access stickers which aloud our members to enter all exhibits and special attractions as we pleased.

August Tour Update

The August tour was hosted by HRR board member Rick Jones.  We started out on a beautiful morning from club President Tom Collins’ private getaway, Loafer’s Glory.  We then set out on a carefully crafted route that was road tested several times by HRR board member Russ Barnes.  After a gas stop along the route we arrived at our first destination in Manchester where we were amazed at a vast array of collectibles including movie memorabilia, autographed guitars, and many unique collectibles.  There were several buildings containing these collections and it was truly an amazing private collection.
