I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season with no problems. It is hard to believe we are into 2018.  Seems it was just October 2017.

When I was working and in the middle of my career, I came in contact frequently with an older gentleman who always muttered; “the train is going too fast, the train is going too fast, I can’t get off”.  I always thought he was wacky, but now I know the truth.  The world and time are going too fast.   This has been an unusually cold start to winter.  Reminds us of the OLD days. As I begin to think spring, there is snow on the ground and it is reallllly cold.   Winter seems to last longer as we get older.

Jane and Don Palmer hosted another marvelous Christmas meeting. Great food, good company, and fun gifts.  Thanks again to them for hosting this annual event.  I wonder how many years they have been doing it?

Don Palmer would like to remind everyone to send him their car photos and also a little write-up if you can.  Even an interesting trip you made in your antique.   AND- he can also post “for sale” items.  You can do either e-mail or snail mail.   Please start thinking about what you would like to do this year. We need input planning interesting meets.  Could you host or plan an activity?   Even a suggestion of something in your area helps.

Dues are due now.    They are STILL  $15 per family  Please send to Judi Nichols,  33 Beach St,  Millbury, MA. 01527.
