Supplemental Presidents Message July 21, 2020 CANCELATION OF THE AUGUST 16TH PICNIC.

Message: 

 In the words of our National President for 2020, Julie Bruggner, club events should take into account a number of facets to help decide what is the right course of action for club events. The safety of the members of our club and the communities in which the events take place must be our primary consideration. Back in mid- June we were experiencing what we hoped was a bit of relief from the COVID–19 pandemic threat that would allow an opening of our social calendar by late summer. We enthusiastically scheduled our mid-summer club picnic for August 16th, to at least create a date we could look forward to. Unfortunately, due to recent pockets of a resurgence of the pandemic we have decided to cancel the picnic. The Sonnenberg Gardens Car Show is now scheduled for September 6th. Under current circumstances It seems unwise to attend this event as a club outing. FALL COLOR TOUR We still have our fall color tour scheduled for October 16th or 17th. This event is a planned drive from Cortland to Skaneateles. This event will be a driving experience that can easily respect social distancing values while allowing us to enjoy ourselves in our personal vehicles. More information on this event will be shared when all the details are set. MBUSA REBATE Incentives till July 31st If you are considering another Mercedes purchase this summer take note of a Club Rebate program in effect till July 31st. The rebates are between $500 and $5,500. The information is available under the Membership Section; see MBUSA Rebate Incentives.
