Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
With Labor Day weekend now behind us, marking the end of summer for many, we’re faced with the fall. It pains me to say that there is already a tree that is dropping tiny yellow leaves onto the driveway and cars. It has gone this way the last four years that we’ve lived at this place. For the first few days I’m in denial. I pretend they’re not there, they’re not in my driveway, they’ll blow off the car, it’s not time. About two weeks go by and finally Lindsey and I discuss it, looking up at the tallest tree, deep in the woods that’s not on our property, and shake our heads realizing the time has come. The leaves are real. It’s only a matter of time before all the other trees follow but there are still a number of weeks of good weather left in New England. And hey, it’s a great opportunity to wear our club coats!
Next month a small group will gather in Ocean City, Maryland for the Endless Summer Cruisin’ show. It’s shaping up to be one of the smallest meets yet but for sure a good one with this crowd! It will be a great last hurrah with the cars for the season and always wonderful to see fellow members. There is still time to commit to making the trip. Just come hang out with the group and grab some good food!
Our monthly Ride of the Month contests are almost back to normal. September is the final month we recognize a Carlisle class winner and in October, we’ll return to member voting and the contest of old. If you’re interested in participating, I highly encourage you to inquire. It’s a really fun thing to participate in with in the club, great to be able to do the entire thing virtually, and a nice way to be recognized for keeping your LH moving. Your LH could be featured in our annual calendar as well!
As we look to the last few months of the year, it means a few things for this club:
- Calendar photographs are needed so make sure to add it on your To Do list NOW!! Please don’t wait! I look forward to seeing the great shots that will make up the 2020 calendar. Robert (sparky99) will grace the cover because he won our Ride of the Year contest!
- Board of Directors – it’s been a relatively easy year (did I just jinx us?!) and a pleasure to work with the current board. I ask each of you reading this to consider your future participation on the board. It’s a great way to give back to the club and be a part of keeping us running. Feel free to reach out to any current BOD member to get their feedback on what participation means. New volunteers are always welcome!!
- Typically, the forum activity scales back a bit this time of year so I challenge you to keep the conversation going. The club Fantasy Football league will begin shortly so if you’re looking for some place to push buttons, head to that thread!! As we continue to fight for our LHs to be on the road, it’s important to keep the support going on the forum. Thanks in advance!
Additionally, the holidays are right around the corner. Take a look at our merchandise post and add to your wish list! We are happy to box up your order and get it in the mail ASAP. A drink tastes way better from a club pint glass, a coffee from a club coffee mug, and a trunk is not organized without a club logo organizer!
Our membership continues to be so strong – thank you! We regularly get new members and the forum is as active as ever. Renewals, even when members have moved on from the car, are valued and ensure our future security as a club. Keep up this great work of recruiting LHs that you see in your travels with the business cards and drive conversation with posting on the forum. This club exists for you and because of you…let’s keep it strong!
