FLMBCA FOURTH QUARTER PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Message: 

Greetings to my fellow members of our wonderful Finger Lakes Section of Mercedes Benz Club of America. We have had a Mercedes Benz car and friendship focused fun filled time this past summer with many events, one that just concluded at the Del Lago Casino and Hotel on September 8th. Many members attended, however if you missed this great Jazz Fest, you missed a wonderful sun-drenched fun filled afternoon. We have to thank fellow member Larry Driscoll, also a member of The Seneca Falls Rotary Club who sponsored and Del Lago security for their efforts in organizing this afternoon. Pictures are a great way to share the story, so please take a look at the pages of this newsletter to see the fun we shared at the Seneca Falls Rotary Club Jazz Fest and also our see our club display of a dozen beautiful Mercedes Benz automobiles. We were able to check out models from a 2018 G550, to a 2018 SL 550 and a 1968 280 SE. A Seneca Falls Rotarian also displayed his 2014 E63 AMG. Here is hoping that he will join our club. More than one attendee asked if we could do this again. Well maybe? Next year’s date for Jazz Fest is September 13, 2020.

In the meantime, you do not want to miss our very fun and exciting “Fall Color Tour 2019” driving rally on Saturday September 28th. Check it out in our ‘Up Coming Events Section’ for details and directions. This will be our last driving event of this year and is the first scheduled rally in several years. DON”T MISS THIS!! This will be an EXCEPTIONAL experience organized by Dave Tobin, an expert at organizing such events. His last event, carried in ‘The Star’ magazine on page 82 of the September 2016 issue, was called the 2016 Walleye 1000 Vintage Rally in Minnesota.

Now is the time to attend one of your last 2019 club events!! 2019 is fading. Don’t wait.

We look forward to our annual meeting in Geneva scheduled on Sunday November 17th. Once again, we will gather at historic Belhurst Castle for a lunch, elections and discussions about the possibilities of our 2020 schedule of events. Details may be found in the ‘Up Coming Events Section’ of this Tri-Star issue. Be sure to thank Judy and Bob Handzo for organizing this annual event as well as our picnic each year. This may be our last chance to ‘break bread’ with and share some time with past president Bob and retiring Secretary- Treasurer Judy. This wonderful couple, our leaders for nearly 10 years are retiring to North Carolina. We want to also thank VP Bob Harradine, who has taken on the responsibilities of a new full-time job, for his great efforts this past year as our vice president and membership chair. Bob also filled in nicely as our Liaison with Rochester Mercedes Benz. We now need your help in leadership positions, so if you believe that you can donate a brief amount of time in 2020 to your club, please free to contact me. You will find that a leadership positions is a fulfilling opportunity that requires less time than you may expect. As always, Mercedes Benz owners are a very fun group of people to share time with. Also, thank you for allowing me to be you club president in 2019. I have had fun.

Happy and safe motoring, President Don Klug
