Happy Easter to our Sequoia Region Members!
It’s been a busy start of the year for our club this year. From the tours, to great dinners, 1st Saturday Cars and Coffee meet ups and a couple of wine tours, we have had a full schedule. I want to thank all the members that have helped with our activities so far this year. Please read the great stories by our board and regular members in this quarterly Zeitung.
Sadly, I need to report that we lost two great long time members. Gene Gilpen which was a very long time and very active member passed away in January. June McPherson Maslowski, age 95, died March 18th in Sacramento where she had been living the last few years. June and her husband, Tony, were actively involved in the Porsche Club for many years. A memorial service was held on March 23rd at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Clovis. I apologize for not getting out the announcements in time for the services. Please read the articles submitted by Margie Back.
We still have a lot of activities coming up this year and hope you can join us for some of them. As we turn towards the warmer months, we have several great events coming up. Starting off in April, we have the joint Autos en Koffie at the dealership on April 7th. There is Big Hat Day in Clovis on that day, so we couldn’t have our regular meet up. On April 10th, we have a great dinner at The Starving Artist. It’s an outdoor event and well attended each year due to the relaxing atmosphere and great conversations that are had. On Sunday April 15th, we will return to On The Edge in Clovis for our Koffie and Cars. We have not started the autocross which is normally on the 2nd weekend of the month, so this works out well.
As a reminder, with so many new members, we ask that you wear your name badges to all events and especially this one to receive your free coffee. If you are missing your name badge, or need a new one, please see one of the board members at the event to get your information and also to be able to get your free coffee.
On April 21st we have our Three Rivers Tour, headed by Dave Ogden. This is a fun tour and a great drive. We will make it enjoyable for all types of driving, from the adventurous to relaxed easy touring groups. Rounding out April, on April 28th we have our tech session at the dealership. Details are on our website and Facebook. An email blast will also be sent out soon. There are many more events throughout the year, so keep up with the website and the event calendar. We have had many new members join us in the past year. I would like to welcome the new members and hope you can come to enjoy the many activities that we have. We are always looking to keep our activities current and looking for new fun ideas. So, please let our board members know of ways that we can continue to make this a fun club to be a part of. Noted on the President’s Letter next page is a rough list of many of the new members and their cars. It may not be a complete list, so if I missed a new member, please join us on one of our events, so we can learn more about you, your family and your Porsche addiction!
