As we begin this new year of 2007, we would like to thank Ernest and Debbie McClellan for the great job they have done for this club for the past two years. Greg Zaiser, we thank you and Jill, too.

We now move on to face whatever 2007 will bring for us. The first challenge is to get our Website up and running. We will need to do that in order to get the word out about what a great club we are. The second challenge is being successful in our upcoming Edison Festival of Lights Cruise-in and Block Party. I know everyone will pitch in and make sure it is a grand show. The third challenge we were about to face was to find a new sponsor to help us continue our club activities and the charitable and benevolent work we would like to pursue. That challenge was met by one of our own members, Gene Suggs, who is the Divisional President for AMERICA’S FIRST HOME builders. He has offered their sponsorship effective immediately. There is only one way to thank Gene and his company.
WE LOVE YOU, GENE, and AMERICA’S FIRST HOME!!

Too bad some of us left before they started shooting the watermelon!!! Thanks for a fun day and a different way to start the New Year.
