President’s Message: It’s Fall! Enjoy the Colors and Sequester with Hope.

Message: 

It’s Fall! Many of us are still masked and although we may have spent a little time behind the wheel of our Mercedes these past several months, we still hope to have fun again with our fellow club members. In an attempt to do just that we have our Fall Color Tour scheduled for Friday October 9 th. This is the only club event we feel safe conducting for this season. We can easily social distance ourselves in our cars and drive together from Cortland to Skaneateles while enjoying the colors of fall. Upon arrival at our destination, we plan to enjoy a lunch (that we bring) along side of Skaneateles Lake. Bring a chair. We thank Doug and Bea Archer for coordinating this event. Your club officers have decided to move our annual meeting to late March or early April, 2021, in hope that we see a significant change in our fight against COVID-19. Judy Handzo, our annual meeting coordinator, has several venues in mind and will provide details at a later date. In the meantime, consider joining us October 9th . As well, may I recommend that you enjoy the article in the September- October issue of The Star magazine, ”At The Helm, The history of the steering wheel at Mercedes Benz”, written by Star staff. The article covers the first steering wheel designed for a race in France in 1894 and its evolution through the newest generation, “2020: The Capacitive Steering Wheel “, designed for 2020 Mercedes vehicles. I believe that the article captures the essence of Mercedes Benz continued effort to design and build world class cars and reminds us all of the outstanding leadership engineering we have come to enjoy with Mercedes Benz ownership. Sequestered in the garage with hope for a bright 2021.
