Message From the President
July 6th, 2016
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
We’ve turned the corner to the second half of the year, second half of the calendar, and the month many of us wait for – Carlisle! As many of you have seen, I’ve been deep into my M with some major modifications and look forward to bringing it to a show – finally! I know many of you can relate to my recent thoughts; cars are such a love and hate relationship! Whether it’s a unique one of a kind modification or regular maintenance, there’s always something. A gasket you didn’t realize needed to be replaced as well, a broken plastic piece needing to be replaced, or a brainchild coming to reality in not quite the same way. It’s stressful, aggravating, expensive, as well as fun, satisfying, and rewarding. The range of emotions is wide and you can always count on a club member to support you through it when posting on the forum. Through it all, it’s wonderful (and really needed sometimes) that there’s such a support network here. Thanks for being a part of it!
Many of us will gather in Carlisle, PA for the largest Chrysler car show in the US. We will proudly represent the LH platform and are excited to see fellow members. For those not able to join us, plan on it next year! You can also follow our shenanigans throughout the weekend on the forum and on social media.
Carlisle is such an exciting time! Everyone is a buzz for the meet and the enthusiasm lasts all weekend long. This year we have about 30 cars registered, more than 40 for food, 50 t-shirts sold, and many new mods to be unveiled. We will debut our new club banner and feather flags and I can’t wait to post pictures of our group with them. Our next edition of the club newsletter will be released at Carlisle and will be posted to the forum for all to enjoy. Our July Ride of the Month winner will be the Best in Show winner of the meet. Our membership voting will resume in August so keep an eye out.
As the group decided not to return to Ocean City this fall, we’re still open to other options. All suggestions have been researched and counted out for one reason or another. If you come across something that looks interesting, accepts the age of our cars, is big enough to make a meet around, reasonably located for travel, and looks to be a good time please send the suggestion my way.
After Carlisle we will be putting together a large club gear order. Keep an eye out for an order form and be sure to stock up on new embroidered club gear! A test order was placed and the quality is great. Make your Hanukah, Christmas, birthday, just because day lists now and let your family know you’re looking for some new club gear. We hope to have a variety of mens and womens apparel items, tote bags, and cold weather gear.
Our membership continues to be strong. Many thanks for your continued efforts to tag cars, post on social media, and talk us up! It’s so great to see new memberships and to hear from members renewing even after their cars are gone. We continue to hover right around the 300 active member mark which is really impressive.
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!
Respectfully, Keith Jarvis Club President Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club
