meeting. There were no guests present.
A motion was made and accepted to approve the February 23 meeting minutes
as published in the March newsletter.
Treasurer Kathy Harrison provided her Treasurer’s report. A motion that
it be accepted as presented was made and approved.
The first item of old business discussed was the decision made at the
last meeting to send a plaque to Senator Walter Stosch to show our appreciation
for his efforts in behalf of the old car hobby. Several plaque designs were
provided by Jack Ashburn, and after some discussion one was selected. Wording on
the plaques was then discussed and the following was chosen:
“Presented to Senator Walter Stosch, from the Northern Neck Region,
Antique Automobile Club of America, in appreciation for your support of the Old
Car Hobby in Virginia”
A second item of old business was the suggestion last month by Connie
that we consider having a silent auction at one of our meetings. It was decided
that we will do this at our May meeting.
Information was made available on two upcoming shows – the Southeast
Division Spring meet (Smokey Mountain High) July 13-15 in Ashville, NC, and the
Fredericksburg Spring Break 4 meet April 15.
Dewey Ableiter then presented details on the overnight tour that he has
arranged to Luray Caverns in May. A show of hands by those present revealed
support for the tour. The dates will be May 2&3 (Tuesday and Wednesday), and
departure will be from Warsaw at 8:30. Reservations should be made at the Best
Western in Luray. (See details provided separately in this issue).
Jack Ashburn reported that the ’54 GMC and the Chrysler engines listed
for sale last month have been sold.
Jack then reported on the Cruise-in being started in Kilmarnock at the
Chesapeake Commons Shopping Center. It will be the second Sunday of each month
(4-6 PM) starting in April and will run through October. A 50-50 drawing will be
held at 6PM. All special Interest Vehicles are Welcome.
Jack asked if a spring tour was still wanted in addition to the other
events planned and received a strong yes in response. It was decided that it
should be scheduled for June, 3 and will be primarily on the Middle Peninsula
including West Point, Glenns, and the Gloucester area.
Jack also reminded us that Wings and Wheels will be September 30. Wayne

Va. Wayne has applications, and stated that there is a 4/29 deadline for those
who want their cars judged. He and others are planning to leave Friday morning
to head for Martinsville.
Peyton Guest stated that Riverfest at Tappahannock is scheduled for June
10, and he reminded us that this is a paid show for us so we need a strong
turnout. Peyton also thanked the club for all the cards and well wishes
following his knee replacement surgeries and said that he is doing well.
Someone asked if our new cruise-in will be advertised on the radio and
the newspaper, and Jack Ashburn said yes in both instances.
Connie thanked Jack Vogel for bringing refreshments (and it was later
decided that we should sign Peggy Vogel up to provide them every month!!!).
Neil Hughes said he would volunteer to bring refreshments next month.
