This year’s Progressive Dinner was a smashing success with 41 of our members enjoying delicious foods at three locations.  Mother Nature was an uninvited guest with two short showers that kept the antique car turnout to two.

With appetizers at Bob and Ken’s home the evening was off to a good start.  It was a loud and gregarious group carrying on a variety of conversations only interrupted by returns to the platters to replenish their plates.  We then moved on to Ira and Susan’s for the main course.  Fortunately, most of the tables were on a covered patio so everyone was able to stay dry while they dined.  Manny Garcia led off with a description of what we would be served: Brazilian-style meats and sides served at the table. and he also told us about the door prizes: practical gifts for the auto enthusiast.  If you sat in a chair with a marker underneath you were a winner.  Once that was done we moved to the home of Maurice and Jean’s for coffee and dessert, dessert, dessert and more desserts.

The good spirits and comradery never faltered, but they are never in short supply at our club.

Progressive Dinner – October 31, 2015

We held our annual Progressive Dinner on Saturday, October 31, 2015.  Even though it was Halloween, only three members showed up in costume and we had only four antique cars make the trip to the three destinations.  Still, it was a festive evening with good food and even better company with conversations ranging from memories of events past to car talk to theatre and to remembrances of childhood.  All in all it was a very enjoyable evening.

Thanks to our hosts, Philp Williams, Guy Lewis and Bob Squier, and to Mel Mann, Manny Garcia, Millie Valiente, Ira and Susan Shapiro and Maurice and Jean Hawa for making this whole production work.
