Hi everyone!

We just wanted to say “HAPPY TO HAVE YOU AT OUR ALFA/FIAT LUNCHEON AT THE BREEZEWAY IN SANFORD LAST SATURDAY.”  We had a good crowd of 25 people!!!

Here is whose company we enjoyed:

Gladys Bernstein  Dan Beyer  Norman, Joan & Madison Burnstine  Robert Burnstine  Robin Broderick & Deanna Moran  Phil & Patty Cowherd   Rick Hanson  Charles Hernandez  Linda Jay & Don Jeffries  Peter & Nanette Levine  Bob & Margo Miller  Gloria Richer  Pete & Cathy Small  Bill & Joyce Suchy (I’m so glad they are staying active in the club!!!)  John & John Tremblay

It was GREAT seeing and catching up with you all!

We are sorry that we didn’t get to have our planned “little meeting” – but as you well know – the noise was just TOO MUCH between conversations and music!  So here are a few things we should have covered – just to keep you informed!

·        CONGRATULATIONS to Mark Kluger who has accepted the position of our Mid-Florida Alfa/Fiat Club TREASURER!  Thanks for coming onboard, Mark!     ·        We still have to find a new “attendant” for our Mid-Florida AROC Website:   Have a look:   We have been blessed that Richard Reel is still trying to keep our latest event information posted (Richard has been our Webmaster for many years) – but Richard has other responsibilities to move on to, and would like to find a replacement.  BE BRAVE!  It just takes posting things as you receive emails on them and using your own creativity to promote things (like our VIVA ALFA Car Show!)     ·        We were going to have a report from a few of the folks who went on Donovan Dean’s “Backroads Tour” up to northeast of Tavares.  I understand they had a beautiful and interesting drive to a wonderful restaurant, and a good lunch to boot!  Thank you, Donovan!     ·        We are still going to TRY to have an Alfa/Fiat event every month (it was your request).  If you have any good ideas about (an air conditioned) restaurant that would be fun to have lunch at over the summer months, please let me know!  A private room, or a private corner (where we can have a short meeting) would be really great!

Things we are planning now in future months:

o   Hopefully, June and July we will meet to have lunch somewhere in the Central Florida area (if you can come up with a good restaurant for this).  We will also hold a short meeting.  WE NEED RESTAURANT RECOMMENDATIONS.  o   An August Bowl-a-thon  o   A September trip over to New Smyrna Beach, to A BEAUTIFUL, SECRET LOCATION, for a “bring a dish” pot-luck lunch and meeting.  o   Sometime later in the Fall, we will probably try to “copy-cat” a cruise that the Porsche Club took to a Tiger Rescue Reserve.  We heard it was a marvelous day!  More information to come on that!

Of course, we welcome any and all recommendations for events or locations!

PLEASE PUT THESE DATES ON YOUR CALENDARS NOW:  Friday, November 1st –     WELCOME DINNER for VIVA ALFA at d’Antonio’s Café in Celebration.  Saturday, November 2nd – VIVA ALFA AT CELEBRATION
