OLD FORT VW CLUB MEETING MINUTES
September 13, 2021
Twenty members and friends met at Shoaff Park for our September meeting.
Kyle Shepherd asked for a treasurer’s report. Orlyn Meyer passed the report around. After taking out the expenses for the Car Show, we had a profit of $1,826.26. We also took in six new members.
Larry Thiel said that two walkie-talkie radios that we use for the Show have broken, and he needs to replace them for about $20.00 for the pair. MM&P for Larry to take care of getting the radios.
Barb Wiederman is having an auction to sell many car parts that belonged to her husband, including motors, transmissions, tools, etc. The auction is October 3rd at 9AM. She would appreciate help.
Several events are listed on the Club Website, or soon will be, including:
∙ Toledo Bug Fest: $5.00 per person park entrance, plus $15 to show
East of I-280, NE corner of Toledo. (Much road construction)
∙ Martin, MI Show Sept 19
∙ James Dean 9/24-25-26

Larry Thiel read the first three articles of the OFVW Club Constitution. (SEE CLUB CONSTITUION). It states that members are asked to be considerate of fellow members, and to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects the spirit of camaraderie within our Club. All Club members are expected to treat fellow members with respect and dignity.
Following the reading of the three articles from the Club Constitution, Kyle read a letter that had been sent anonymously to the Club officers, regarding an event that happened at the Show. Kyle asked Club members what should be done. After some discussion, it was agreed that we will not have any voting on Club Cars for the next Show. At that time, we can re-address the situation. Kyle will also be in contact with the D.J. concerning the situation.
The Valer Company that made the beautiful glass trophies is willing to make Club Member Show souvenirs for $17.00 each. Anyone that wants one and did not give Marilyn your name yet, please respond to this email.
Larry Thiel said that we need to be thinking of the Charities that should receive a donation. We will discuss these and be voting at our October meeting.
