President’s Message

May is just about done and it was a very strange weather patteron with lots of rain, cold nights in early May and some blistering heat wave in the last 2 weeks. Let’s hope we have better weather going forward.

Earlier this week a number of us worked on the “Brenengen’s/ RCC car show”(July 14th.) We will need all hands on deck to make everything go smoothly. Don Brenengen and Britton Slowey both attended and Don talked about the new building for the West Salem Boy’s & Girl’s club. This seems to be an all city movement and they currently have $2.1M. They are looking at a goal of $3M.

Sharon and I will be out of town from June 2nd – 21st visiting our daughter in Florida, Keep your cars on the road and let’s have some fun now that the weather is getting better.
