A Message from our President, 2018

President’s Message


I want to take this opportunity to wish our section members a Happy New Year.


It’s doesn’t seem possible that another year has come and gone so quickly, but 2017 was a great year.  We had a lot of great First Sunday Drives and interesting events that were well attended.  2017 came to a close with our Annual Member Appreciation and Holiday Party at Blackhawk Museum with nearly 130 members in attendance. It was truly an event to be remembered. A collection of vintage and modern Mercedes-Benzes displayed on the Museum Plaza, an extraordinary buffet catered by Scott’s Seafood and recognition of member’s milestone anniversaries. Long-time member, event organizer, photographer and all around favorite, Sandor Drobilisch received the Member of the Year award, presented by past National President Richard Simonds and past National Vice-President Laura Simonds.


2018 promises to be another great year of First Sunday Drives and events.  The year begins with tours of Moffett Field and Mare Island, which promise to be exciting and informative. Be certain to review the 2018 Calendar for our upcoming First Sunday Drives and events that you’ll want to calendar and attend.


On May 12th, we’ll celebrate our section’s 60th Anniversary.  You won’t want to miss this event. Check the website and newsletters for additional information as the date approaches.
