SCMC President's Corner
The holidays are now behind us and a new year is upon us. Time does seem to go by fast even though some times the seasons seem to be fast or slow depending on which one we currently are in. For me even though the winter seems to never be moving along each month that I sit down to write the newsletter it seems to go by fast. This is of course all in how you perceive it. Plans are being made for the upcoming 2020 cruise season. As you all know December’s meeting was postponed until January due to the holidays
In case no one has heard the long lost Steve McQueen Bullitt Mustang has been located and is now going up for auction this month at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee. There has been a lot of buzz on this and it will be interesting to see how much this iconic Mustang will go for. This is one of two cars that were used to film the movie and the one used in the car chase scenes. Steve McQueen tried unsuccessfully for years to buy the car from the current owners. The Mustang has been kept in its original condition.
It is with a heavy heart that I have to relay that Honorary Member Armand Chattell has passed away on December 21, 2019. Armand has been a member since 2003. He was the clubs hotdog guy manning the grill at our early cruise nights at the Mohegan Fire house and Beit Bros events. Armand was a diehard Red Sox fan and got to see his team win a couple World Series games. Armand and club founder Bo Miller who is a New York Yankees fan had many conversations on their teams kidding each other on who was the better team and always while smiling. Armand will be missed by his family, friends and Mustang club members who had the pleasure of getting to know him.
Remember that the next indoor meeting will be held at Hall Communications 40 Cuprak Rd Norwich from 4-6 pm on January 18th. Members as always are asked to arrive early as this is a secure facility.
See you at the next meeting,
