A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As our directors age, we are tiring. While this has been mentioned before, it has now reached a
point where serious discussions have taken place among the directors concerning the future of the club.
There are some members of the board who have served you for over 40 years and others for over 20 years.
Wes Ebbs has been a board member since day #1 back in 1971, Bob Ward has been a board member since 1975.
We are losing members. Almost a third of the membership have dropped out for various reasons in the last few years.
Our members are spread around Canada and some parts of the world. Most members reside in Ontario, however
attendance at events has been low which would imply that touring is no longer very important to the membership.
Some of our board members are seriously considering retiring from the board and discussions have been long and hard.
Should our Editor, Librarian, Treasurer, Membership chair, Secretary, Web master and Mailing services people
decide to step down, board members are seriously concerned that there will be no willing volunteers to take these jobs.
So, one of the longest running single "marque" clubs in Canada is at a crossroad:
Can we find members willing to step up and work for the club?
Should we look at ways to close the club or re-form it?
While your board members have hosted the last three homecomings and many of the recent spring and fall tours,
we appreciate and thank those members that have stepped up to host events in recent years.
For 2017, our 46th Homecoming will be based in Newmarket, arranged by some of your Board members,
while Ron and Char are planning a Fall Tour in the Leamington area.
Please come and join in these touring events.
Beyond the end of this year, without the support of volunteers from the membership, the club will discontinue touring activities.
IF YOU WISH THE CLUB TO CONTINUE AS IT IS OR IN SOME OTHER FORM,
PLEASE CONTACT A BOARD MEMBER AND LET US KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS.
We would appreciate emails or letters, rather than phone calls, so we can more easily share your comments with all Board Members.
