place and time does vary. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of odd months.

March, and November meetings are held at 10:00 a.m. to accommodate older drivers.
An annual picnic is held in July of each year. Meetings are occasionally held at

and short trips of a historical nature are also scheduled from time to time.
