President’s Last Blog

Happy Holidays!

As I sit down to pen this, my last blog of the year, and last blog of my term as club President, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on just how great a club GGR and PCA is. It really is about the people and just how much GGR members give to each other. 

Our Christmas party is equal parts a “thank you” to the awesome volunteers who enable our club to function and to put on great events, to get together as a club and dare I say “family”, pass out some awards and just to have fun! I’m honored to have been your President for the last 3+ years.

Here are a few pictures I’d like to share from our recent holiday event, held in the Blackhawk Auto Museum this year. Here’s the space we hired, right in the museum itself. We had 130 members and guests signed up, and we dined amongst the cars.

The Museum also granted us permission to park some of our cars in the upper lot right next to the entrance to make our own artistic display.

And our club members generous Toys-for-Tots donations (Thanks to you all !!)
