2014 Gala Dinner and Meeting

Members of the MG3 Club gathered February 8 at the Radisson-Mayfair on a cold, snowy evening to meet ‘n greet in one of the reception party rooms.  Walls were lined with tables holding silent auction items, and both old and present club banners were hung.  This year’s attendance numbered 42. Joan Houillon, secretary, reported 16 members new in 2014; Greg Button and Sarah Vester were recognized as first-timers, as were Mark & Billy Jo Maline. How lovely it was to chat with old timers and new members as well, everyone looking forward to warmer weather of Spring.  Ken Rizzo set up and operated Bruce Butler’s projector so members could view photos of last season’s events (and powerpoint displays)…thanks to both. Those warm weather scenes sure looked good. 

All officers spoke at the podium to give their reports.  Former club president Bob Jozwowski spoke as well, giving available details of what promises to be a super Fall Tour in the Waupaca area. He and Deb drove from the Wautoma area for the evening.  A host hotel has been selected, with the Mt. Morris Hill Climb  featured on the Saturday, and Bob encouraged new MGers to participate and join in the fun of overnight touring. Jim Maslowski outlined some tech sessions in the making that sound really hot. Club Liaison reps reported all is well; it was made known that a handful of club members have already committed to MG 2014, NAMGBR’s national gathering in French Lick, IN, in June. MGBs in the hundreds are expected to arrive. Others are encouraged to join in for the trek…..the more, the merrier!

Newly announced:  A Regalia section now appears, with photos, on the website.  Also, in the development stage is a web base car-parts for sale (or wanted) listing for members.  

Thanks to all who worked on and attended our annual meeting.  Special thanks goes to Anita Wojciechowski and Mary Lou Campbell for their making a smooth, well-planned event.  Photos from the event follow.
