Pittsburgh Region Cadillac LaSalle Club
From the Desk of the Director
March/April, 2009

Dear Friends—
Pardon the pun, but we are “gearing up” for another exciting Car Season in 2009! Lots of events are planned, which began with our Sweethearts’ Dinner in February. This year, we changed things up a little and switched from Carmody’s in Wexford to Tambellini’s in Bridgeville. The turnout was great, the food was outstanding, and –above all– the company and car talk were bar-none! Thanks to all who made this first event so successful! Please see p. 2 for pictures.

Additionally, on p. 2, you’ll find the 2009 National Event Calendar and p. 7 contains our 2009 Local Event Calendar for the Pittsburgh Region. We know, between these two calendars, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

As we come together for another Car Season to enjoy the cars just as much as the fellowship and friendship of our wonderful group, I need to let you know of two recent events affecting our Board Members.

It is with sadness that we must announce the passing of Marcella Norris the mother of CLC Pittsburgh Region Board Member John Norris. Marcella had been in the hospital for several weeks with pneumonia and other complications and died early this month. If you wish to send a card, John’s address is 313 Sean Dr., Coraopolis, PA,15108.

Additionally, I wanted to let you know that Board Member Frank McBurney has been in the hospital for quite some time now fighting complications which arose from a necessary surgery early this year. Though he is doing better, his progress is slow. I know Frank and his family would appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. We’re hoping for a speedy recovery for Frank so we can see him soon at one of our Car Season events.

Our next big event is the CLC Pittsburgh Region Annual Brunch at Gullifty’s in Squirrel Hill. Please see p. 6 for very specific details and directions.

The last thing I want to mention is that Classifieds are typically included on p. 2 of the Caddy Chatter — if you would like to list a vehicle (or more than one) or parts — just e-mail Stephanie at stephanie.mchugh@clcpgh.org and she’ll be happy to include your listing (or you can send your listing through the US Mail, if you prefer).

We hope to see you soon, whether at the Brunch or an event thereafter. Until then, drive smart, drive right, drive Cadillac!
