Message From the President
December 5th, 2016
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
The snow is flying here in Massachusetts, holiday decorations have popped up in everyone’s homes, and there seem to be lights everywhere! Though I feel like I’ve said it every month, I can’t believe there are so few days left in 2016. This year has flown by – and what a year it’s been!
The club saw some noteworthy things in 2016! First club cruise, awarding Ride of the Month winners with recognition plaques, new forum design, final Indy meet, major recognition for an LH through the SEMA competition, and new club banner and feather flags designed and created for the club. Our members have pushed more boundaries with their modifications, ideas, and support of others. It’s exciting to think about what 2017 will hold for us and I look forward to seeing the great things that this club will do.
With our final ROM winner for the year, keep an eye out for the 2017 club calendar! Be sure to make your purchase early so you don’t miss out enjoying all the great rides next year. Grab one for the office, one for home, and one in the garage (for motivation!). The 2016 Ride of the Year contest will be posted in the next few weeks and we will pick the top ride of 2016 for the cover of the 2018 calendar.
While we’re turning that last page in the 2016 calendar, there are a few things the club needs as it continues into 2017. The current Board of Directors is entering its last month of service. Please consider your participation in the BOD for 2017. There are a wide range of responsibilities to volunteer for which helps the club to continue year after year. This leadership is essential to the longevity of the club and taking us into the future. If you have any questions please reach out to a current BOD to hear more about the roles and how you can contribute!
As these winter months go by, keep an eye out on the events link for club events in 2017! Carlisle currently is having a discount on vehicle registration so don’t miss out on saving some money to attend. A second club meet in May is also a possibility and there are always pop-up events that gather people regionally. Going to an event, hear of something automotive to do? Post it, let others know, and have a great time!
I don’t like thinking that as the years tick by, our cars get that much older, have that many more miles, and the issues and maintenance seem more and more. Every year this club gets more valuable with the people and knowledge it provides. While members have come and gone, it’s important that we continue to reach out to LH owners, share this resource with them, and add to our car family in every way we can. Join me in refilling your glove box with member cards and club flyers for 2017 so any time you see an LH, you can tag it.
We’re entering a busy season for many things un-car related. Be sure to stay connected with the club through posting on the forum and supporting other members with needs or questions. These winter months can get a bit quiet on the forum; let’s keep the posting numbers up! Your help could be the deciding factor that helps a potential new member join the club.
If you’ve been reading these messages each month and find yourself continuing to return to the Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club page and aren’t a member yet, please consider joining us! It’s easy, inexpensive, and opens up some great resources and benefits to you. Please click here to join us! If you know your current membership will be expiring soon, be sure to renew here. You’ll be receiving a reminder just in case you forget to renew!
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends and all the best for 2017!
Respectfully, Keith Jarvis Club President Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club
