Kudos and Announcements – June 2022
What’s Going On and Who’s Doing It
Saturday, June 25th, the Roamin Angels put on the first Auto Swap Meet which was held at the Nevada City Elks Club. Thanks to the hard work of Jim and Kriss S., 25 vendor spaces were sold. People walked away with a lot of “cool stuff”. The American Legion had a shuttle from the The Rood Center to the Swap meet to take care of overflow parking. The Elks Club opened their bar for libations and offered a scrumptious rib and potato salad lunch. A profit was made and many of the vendors look forward to another swap meet in the Fall!!!
The Board had a space where T Shirts from past Car Shows were sold along with raffle tickets to the Barrett Jackson auction. We were surprised at the interest in those old shirts!!!! In fact, if you are interested in any 2018 or 2019 shirts, please feel free to contact Jean H. at 530.271.1731 during the day or after 6 pm, call 530.268.3436. Shirts are $5 each or 3 for $10.
If the club is going to be successful in the future, we are going to need smaller less work intensive events. We need ideas and when we have ideas, we need volunteers. We have had problems with people volunteering to sell raffle tickets. We will be setting up a table at the Mel’s car show and hopefully selling some tickets through the Riebes booth at the Fair. Please, please consider working a couple hour shift to sell tickets. The raffle has always been a main fundraiser for us to maintain the club and the work we do within the community.
If you have an idea for a simple fundraiser or would like to help with future events, please feel free to contact any of the Board Members whose name and contact information are listed in the newsletter. The club can’t sustain itself with 10 or 12 people doing the majority of the work. If you care about the club and it future, please share in keeping the Roamin Angels Car Club a presence in the community!!!
