President's Message

PRESIDENT”S MESSAGE: May 2022

 

Greetings Dodge Brothers and Sisters,

Since I am writing this in March, by the time you read this the Charleston Charm Tour will be in the history books.  I hope everybody had a good time.  Once again, we were able to enjoy our cars out on the road and the camaraderie of being together.

Our net Dodge Brothers International Meet and Tour will be in New York State.  The Finger Lakes Tour will take place June 18-24, 2023.  More information will be coming soon.

This brings me to my next point. We are looking for the 2024 meet to take place somewhere west of the Mississippi River. I am searching for ideas and chairpersons wanting to host a meet out west. Because of COVID, our schedule got messed up, but I am eager to get back on track and have a meet after New York that is away from the east coast.

It would be great to alternate between the two coasts. I want to start thinking about having the 2025 meet back east too. Maybe some place like Dayton, Ohio. Any ideas? Please don't hesitate to share them with me.

Now that it looks like things are getting back to normal, we have to start thinking about our future as a club.

I know hosting a meet is a lot of work. And organizing a meet is even more of a challenge in the face of a worldwide pandemic. I appreciate all the hard work that our chairpersons and volunteers have put in to making our Dodge Brothers Club Meets and Tours a success.

I would also like to rethink our ideas about the scholarship fund and talk about how we as a group can foster the hobby.

We will be discussing these issues and many more at the meet in Charleston. Keep looking for updates in the magazine, on the website, and on the Dodge Brothers Club Inc. Facebook page.
