Pittsburgh Region Cadillac LaSalle Club
From the Desk of the Director
MayJune, 2009

Greetings, Friends!—
I wanted to let you all know that our scheduled Pittsburgh Region CLC board and membership meeting for this Saturday has been changed to Tuesday, June 2, 2009 @ 6:00pm to be held at the Eat ‘N’ Park in Robinson, 100 Park Manor Drive, 15205. (412) 787-8556.

Some of the agenda topics for this meeting with be our next group events - The Grand National in Las Vegas, the Brookville Laurel Festival/Steve Greenberg's Cadillac Garage Trip, and the 2009 Club events calendar (including plans to celebrate the Pittsburgh Region’s Silver Anniversary… yep, that’s 25 years of Pittsburgh Region Cadillac LaSalle Club!). I hope you can all make it and will contribute your opinions to make this year a continued success for our club.

An additional note: Stephanie, Jack, and I will NOT be attending the Grand National in Las Vegas as previously planned. Scheduling conflicts with Steph's school and post-graduate program at Duquesne, the pre-planning of the arrival of baby girl McHugh in September (yep… in case you haven’t heard yet, Jack is going to be a big brother!), and other commitments are forcing us to rethink our overbooked schedules. We are planning, however, to attend the Brookville Trip to Steve's Garage on June 21st.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that long-time Pittsburgh Region CLC member and current Board member, Frank McBurney is still in the hospital. Frank has spent over 100 days in the hospital because of post-surgery complications and his recovery has been slow. Please keep Frank, Audrey, and the whole McBurney family in your thoughts and prayers. If you’d like to send a note or card, the McBurney’s live at 537 Dendron Road, Coraopolis, PA 15108.

Gentle reminders: ⇒ If you haven’t yet renewed your membership, please do so as soon as possible. Dues are $20 and can be sent to Steph at P.O. Box 154, Venetia, PA 15367. Please make the check payable to Pittsburgh Region CLC. ⇒ If you have renewed your membership, you’ve already notified us… if you haven’t, please note we are trying to go as “paperless” as we can and that means sending the Caddy Chatter electronically via e-mail. When you renew your membership, you’ll have to let us know if you have a preference for e-mail or for receiving a hard copy via the US Postal Service. There will be an extra charge included in the membership fees to defer the rising costs of printing and postage. ⇒ Also, the event calendar on p. 1 is for Pittsburgh Region CLC events only… you’ll find a second, National Event Calendar on p. 2 of the Chatter. Don’t forget to consult this if you’re looking for more!

Hope you all are as eagerly anticipating some of the upcoming events as much as we are! Until then, drive smart, drive right, drive Cadillac!
