Kudos and Announcements – May 2023

Fellow Roamin Angels….

I just wanted to offer my deepest appreciation for the Club’s participation in this past weekend’s Car event at the Veterans Hall. 

The goal of raising funds for the local Scouts and supporting Active Military families was just blown away successfully! 

You are a large component (as usual) of supporting America’s future and active Military and their families currently serving to protect that investment.

Congrats to Dale or being the Boy and Girl Scout’s favorite car and winning Mr. Yedding’s handmade prize.

Again,  you guys and Gals are great and it’s my privilege being a member.


As Seen In The Union: Letters to the Editor:

A huge THANK YOU to American Legion Post 130 of Grass Valley for hosting a wonderful event on Saturday, April 15 for the Scouts Kickoff for the Recycled Roadsters event! Adjunct Mike Hauser and his wonderful group of men and women did a fabulous job helping with the event along with club members from the Roamin Angels. The free event was held in the Vets Hall parking lot. There was a small car show of about 40 cars, a wonderful lunch, bowling and prizes, and entertaining music. It was a fun and gorgeous day! The winner of the car show was Dale Lambert and his 1967 Pontiac GTO. The Scouts were the judges and awarded him a wooden propeller car – a prize made from recycled wood by Ray Yedding. 

The Recycled Roadsters is a Nevada County scouting project where Scouts (from Kindergarten to High School) make wheeled vehicles out of recycled and repurposed materials. The kids’ projects will be on display and judged at the Roamin Angels Car Show on September 9, 2023 at Classic Car West in Nevada City. 

Thank you again to American Legion Post 158 for their generous support, location, and time.

Diane Blakley, Becky Gillespie, and Susan Barry
