The President’s February Letter, Carl Wulfestieg

Winter is still around us, and most of us have our cars securely put away until spring. In this, the first newsletter of 2019, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who played a part in our successful 2018 season. I would first like to thank Bill Root and our board who have worked quietly behind the scenes to keep the club functioning smoothly. Thank you Christina, Peggy, Don and Sandy. Thanks again to Bill for almost 6 years in the President’s seat. I imagine that this was the furthest thing from his mind when Bill stepped up to be membership chairman and VP those long years ago.

Last year we explored new roads and different parts of our state during our driving tours. Thanks Duffy for the tour that started off our season at the Spring Meeting as well as the tour to the Kancamagus Highway. David Fitzgerald stepped up for the first time and led a great tour of the Champlain Islands. Thanks to David and Arlene for a summer picnic, and a chance to wander through the barns to see David’s current projects. Al and Sandy, also first time tour planners, took us to central and eastern Vermont and found a great destination restaurant as well as a new member to our club.

Lastly, thanks to Pete and Ellen for leading the fall tour. They have led at least 6 fall tours, and this year taking route notes while taking care of a young grandchild was particularly challenging for Ellen. We would not have such a great time with each other were it not for these volunteers who gave of their time and knowledge of our Green Mountain State.

I was way under the weather and had to miss the great Holiday Party at the Hotel Vermont but heard it was fantastic.

Elsewhere in this newsletter you will find a save the day item for Saturday May 4, our tour, lunch and Spring Meeting date. Here we will welcome new members who have joined since last fall, as we gather to gear up for a great touring year. The cars are great but the people even better!

See you on the road.
