Happy New Year!
I hope you are spending your holiday’s enjoying the company of family and friends! There is no better way to begin the New Year!
As we enter into 2018 I would like to remind you that it’s time to renew your membership dues of $50.00 per person. You can bring them to either the January 10th meeting, our February meeting, or mail to: BRCC, P.O. Box 806, St. Amant, LA 70774. Remember a new Application MUST be filled out even if you are just renewing, this is our way to verify any changes that may have taken place over the past year so that we may update your information.
Since our February meeting falls on Valentine’s Day, I will try to change it to the next Wednesday, Feb. 21st, if available with St. George Admin. Bldg. and notify you as soon as it has been set.
In the past we have thanked our sponsor Ross Downing by serving a Jambalaya dinner to their employees. We are checking into a date of their convenience usually on a Friday in January. I hope you will be able to come out in support of their sponsorship.
On Saturday evening, Feb. 3rd, Orion Mardi Gras Parade will through the streets of Baton Rouge. This is a fun parade open to ALL members of the club, coupes, hard tops and convertibles. Please let Maria know if you would like to participate. Beads, candy and stuffed animals can be thrown or you can simply ride and wave!
For further information on events for our club and surrounding clubs, please refer often to our Calendar of Events. Our Webmaster and Board Member Karen Bedell does a GREAT job in keeping this site up to the minute with happenings and changes as they become available! Also, if you would like to plan an event (any member is welcomed to put something together), don’t hesitate to do so. Daryle Gauthier our Vice President is in charge of handling all clearance to make sure the date doesn’t conflict with something else already on the books.
Reminder: Our St. Jude Cars Show is April 21st. I’m sure Barry will be starting ticket sales very soon and can use everyone’s help.
I look forward to a great 2018 serving as your President and I’m only a phone call, text message or e-mail away at any time you may have a question, comment or concern.
Finally, don’t forget to Save the Wave! It’s the “PROUD” thing to do!
