Memorial Day Ceremony
Memorial Day 2019 at Memorial Park Grass Valley

Monday, May 27, 2019 Over 200 people gathered at 11 a.m. Monday for a Memorial Day ceremony at Memorial Park in Grass Valley. Standing under cloudy skies, the Grass Valley crowd grew silent as 11 a.m. approached and bagpipes began to play. Will Buck, who retired from the Army as a chief warrant officer 2, said many people don’t understand the significance of Memorial Day. “People are forgetting perhaps the most hallowed holiday we have,” he said. In ones, twos or threes, representatives of military organizations honored their groups. They approached a wreath…

Maxwell Car Show
Maxwell Car show

Up early at 6:30am, we decided at the last minute to attend the Maxwell parade and car show. There is also a rodeo at the same time as the car show in the adjoining area. The Roamin Angels group who were going to drive to Maxwell together cancelled due to the inclement weather and high wind warning predictions. Our instructions were to sign in for the parade at 9:00am.  We made it to Maxwell (a small town off Interstate 5 near Williams).  There was lots of excitement for the children,…

Friday Morning Breakfast Guest
Ian with poster of 1941 KDF Type 60L built by Nazi Germany

May 17, 2019 Ian is a customer and car enthusiast who likes VWs. The picture you are looking at is not a VW but a 1941 KDF Type 60L built by Nazi Germany. Imagine the look of this vehicle …not to mention the engineering… compared with all the other boxish looking things of the late 30’s and early 40’s. Ian bought the poster (rare) and a manual showing the complete restoration and history of finding and identifying the vehicle. I think he said a dozen were made. The photo is of number…

Car Show, Beyond And More
Ray directing traffic at the down town Grass Valley car show May 4, 2019

Let’s begin by thanking Chal Dececco for attending the last car show meeting.  While we are focused on 4 Wheeled toys, Chal’s preference is the 2-wheel variety. Chal’s input and suggestions regarding attracting more Classic Bikes to our Cruisin the Pines 2019 adventure generated interest from the entire crowd. One interesting idea was to spread the Bike displays around through all the buildings we take over for the show.  Having bikes in all the buildings provides attractions in all the buildings as added incentive to tour the whole show. Again,…

New Club Website Coming In July
New Roamin Angels Website launching July 2019

Change can be difficult but sometimes it can also be exciting. Our Roamin Angels website was created in 2006. Over the years the internet technology changed but the website basically stayed the same. A few years ago, our club started taking car show applications online and it was well received. Now, with the progress in smartphone and tablets, many people are using those devices instead of their larger computers to access the internet. It’s time for the club’s website to come into the ‘brave new world’. With a clean, easy…

Car Show, Beyond And More

  Spring has sprung…. How can I tell? Well, that wet stuff has finally ceased or at least dramatically slowed down, Jean’s flowers have pop’ed igniting color all over the place, I’m sneezing cause of all that yellow stuff, I weed wacked this past weekend and…… oh yeah the car show is coming together with (knock on wood) very few glitches so far. As you know, John “Padre” K. has moved out of state which necessitated finding a trainee for this year and to do the gate check in for…

Survive the Drive III is a Success!
Survive the Drive - April 27, 2019

April 27, 2019 Thanks to all the Roamin Angels, Kiwanis Club members, Public and private entities and the interested “civilian” volunteers that helped stage STD III. Special thanks to Brynda & Family who spoke about her brother’s death at the hands of a distracted driver. She brought the helmet he wore that day. Took guts. Took caring & love for her best friend. What seems simple and straight forward to us like how to check oil (after discovering how to open a hood), tire changing, mirror adjustments, blind spots, well…
