TREASURER’S REPORT: As George Spargen is in Arizona at a show, and so was not in attendance. A report was not given. The 2017 Club annual membership fee ($15.00) is due at this meeting. Many members gave Club Quartermaster, Layne Schoenfeld their 2017 dues. All were encouraged to check when their MVPA (national organization) annual membership expires and to renew on time. Please let George Spargen know your MVPA membership number as our club needs to have a certain number of national members to participate in their organization. Membership in the MVPA gets you copies of the Association’s quarterly magazines, The Supply Line and Army Motors. Jimmy Zocchi reported that he has had a few calls from people interested in joining our Club.

QUARTERMASTER REPORT: Layne Schoenfeld reported that nothing has changed pricing wise with Club logoed T shirts, hats, etc. He does have a long sleeved denim shirt that someone ordered at the October Club BBQ. Whoever ordered it, please contact Layne to pick up your shirt.
