Hi Hurricane Chapter!
We're just a few days from Sunday's big Buick Oldsmobile Pontiac Cadillac and GMC show at Marge's Garden Restaurant, and I want everyone to know that things are going well. I have a few more things to tell everyone so you know what to expect come show time. Please keep in mind that it starts at NOON! (4400 North Andrews Ave., Oakland Park.) Here's tonight's HOT news:
I have (2) 8' long tables and (2) 5' long tables I am going to have at the show for us to use. We will have three things we need tables for: Registration, Bake sale and Raffle items. Debbie will be making sure everyone has their registrations, ballots and a place to leave large piles of cash for things like the 50-50 raffle and for applications to join our club (either POCI and our chapter or just POCI). Paul Mack: I believe you told me POCI sent you magazines and applications. We will need applications for joining our chapter too! Please correct me if I am wrong here.
I have not heard from any other vendor who may want to be there other than the Historical Society, and I believe they have their own tables and tents. That reminds me! If you have a tent-shelter that can be used at the show please bring it, as I only have one I am sure of and two others that may not work any more. I will test them out on Saturday!
The computer savvy Dawn has really done a good job on a blog site for us! Here it is, but I don't think it's 100% yet. Just log on to this site: http://hurricanechapterpoci.blogspot.com/ and you'll see what she's done. I hope to make this our 'touch stone', a place for us all to connect at and share information and help. I have NO idea how to work it yet, but I'm sure I will soon!
I will be bringing a large cooler or two for drinks, and I am hoping the restaurant will help us out with ice. These may or may not be for sale. What do you all think we should do? If Marges lets us sell water and soda we would need someone there to actually take money and monitor the situation, so if you think it's a good idea please be willing to volunteer some of your time. It will be really appreciated and will make for a happy day. Any input is appreciated!
Everyone please be sure to stay healthy. There's some nasty bugs going around and we really want to see you on Sunday at the show. So wash your hands, avoid people who appear ill, and keep your lips off door knobs.
