From the President: It was good to be back this month after missing last months meeting. We had a lot of business to take care of at the October meeting and I want to thank everyone for being patient as we got through it all.

I already have a list of members that are willing to bring their cars, and if I don’t have your name and you would be interested, just let me know. Lastly, the Christian Car Club of Conway has been invited by Chik-‐Fil-‐A to put on a display of cars on October 30 at 5:30 for a trunk or treat event. This is the main fundraising event for this club. If you are interested in this, please contact Michael Biggs or myself. This year is almost over and we have elected our officers for next year so we will be looking forward to another year of fun in the coming months. Don
