Ladies Luncheon – Doris Walton reported 11 ladies present which was probably less than the guys had for breakfast but she was sure the ladies had more fun with a “Show and Tell”.

Men’s Breakfast – Harold Williams reported the men had 11 also and challenged Linda Cobb to “squeeze” the rooster. The rooster crowed but not because Linda squeezed it!

Marty Burkhalter reported on the LIHAC Picnic. She was disappointed in the chicken from D&R and called to express her concern. The owner issued a gift certificate in the amount of $150 which was the cost of the chicken. LIHAC has purchased the chicken from D&R for several years.

Harold Williams reported on the Illiana Show. Approximately 10 cars and 20 members were present and was a good show.

The one day Steam and Power show had approximately 10 cars and went well until the rain came. Still a good show for only one day.

The Dammit Doll has a new home. Joe Bowyer is the new owner and had an interesting story to share about the experience. The secret is to break down near Jerry Barnett’s for assistance. The Golden Spike still resides with Bob Findlay.

Eldon Fredericks shared his story on the damage to his Ford Sunliner. Seems as a cement barrier moved over into his car?!!

Roger Miller is the new owner of a 1948 Willy’s Jeep Station Wagon, maroon and painted wood on steel side panels.
