Christmas Party 2018


'Twas weeks before Christmas
And all thru the hall
Our club members gathered
Some short and some tall.

We changed things a bit
Picked a tag for a chair
No spouses to sit with
We trust this was fair!

Great way to get to know each other better!

The dinner was awesome
And beef was our meat
With salad and veggies
Fresh pies - can't be beat.



The stockings were placed
In a box with great care
In hopes the "left/right" game
Would win us a pair.


Everyone's a winner!

The "Search a Word" game
Was a fun one to do
While the "Trivia" questions
Were tough - I got two!

________________________________

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?
Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
What illness do you get from eating Christmas decorations?
Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
How do Christmas trees keep their breath fresh?
Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
What are people who are afraid of Santa Claus called?
Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
Santa Claus rides in a sleigh and the 3 wise men traveled by elephant, horse and camel. What do the elves ride around in?

Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
Santa went to buy his sleigh but he was surprised that it was free. How did Santa get his sleigh for free?
What do you have in December that you don't have in any other month?
Answer: _______________________________________________________________________
There were three guys that died on Christmas. They were sent to heaven, but only could enter if they each brought one thing that represented Christmas. The first guy brought a stocking, and god let him in. The second guy brought a ornament, and god let him in also. The third guy brought him a pair of underwear. All three of their spirits rested in heaven. How is the third guy in heaven?

We finished the night
with a few Reindeer Races
It proved to be great
From the look on some faces!

Rudolph wins by a nose!

We hope everyone 
Thought the venue just right
 Happy Christmas to all
And to all a good night!

A great group - good times and good friends!
We missed you "Snowbirds"

Secret Santa gifts from "you know who" πŸ˜‡

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy new year!

AUGUST 28, 2018 APPRECIATION NIGHT / FOOD DRIVE

sponsored by 
CRUISIN' CLASSICS CAR CLUB

 161 vehicles!
What a great night to end the cruise-in season!

The weather was warm and the food was hot
The cars overflowed the parking lot!
With prizes galore and donations high
The food bank's shelves are filled to the sky!

Our members chipped in by lending a hand
The only thing missing was a live band!
Our cruisers, as always, are simply the best
Our sponsors are better than all the rest!

One thousand, four hundred and eighty four
The total of cars this year - maybe more!
With only two rain outs and one double book
There were 13 nights to come out and look.

Our cruise-ins have come to an end for this year
Fall is approaching and winter is near.
We hope you enjoy the pictures below
Keep checking this blog for a video!

It is muggy outside and the parking area is wet and muddy.
