Dear Auto Enthusiast: VIVA Alfa Romeo Car Show 2022 is the 19th of Mid Florida AROC's annual Viva Alfa Romeo Car Show.
This gala event, scheduled for November 5, 2022 is for Alfa Romeo, vintage Fiat and Lancia automobiles of every year and model.
The purpose of the event is to strengthen the bonds of fellowship among all participating owners, to recognize those who have striven to maintain autos of rare design or condition and to provide a venue where we may display the virtues of our autos to the general public. The site we have chosen is Market Street, in the heart of downtown Celebration, Florida. The town has agreed to cordon off the main block of this beautiful busy street as our show site. The town of Celebration has been highly publicized and draws visitors from around the world. The location is ideal for attracting a large number of spectators during the entire time of the exhibition. Following the show period, our cars will be driven along a parade route through Celebration. We look forward to a great time together.
Those who participate by exhibiting their Alfa Romeos during the show will receive a welcome bag of memorabilia and will be eligible for awards based on judging.

It is with the saddest of hearts that the family of Gladys Bernstein announces her passing on June 4th, 2022. She was surrounded by her family.
.Gladys and her husband Howard were co- founders of the Mid Florida Alfa Romeo Owners Club. The club was started in January of 2002. She remained active as the clubs Hospitality coordinator until 2020, but remained an Alfisti to the end. She lived her life with a determined level of independence and always gave, but seldom asked. Her Alfisti & Fiafisti friends will miss her charm, wit and her gift of presence in our lives.
Gladys was born in the Bronx, NY on August 30, 1930. Gladys led an extraordinary life filled with tireless energy, service to her community, love of her family, and a cherished friend. Her sharp mind and photographic memory allowed her to convey most any detail of her life and experiences. She gave generously to any one in need and was a tenacious problem solver
Gladys began her family in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area after Howard completed his US Navy service. She lived there until 1979 and was a dedicated activist in her community. One of her most notable accomplishments was to start and oversee the creation of the Monroeville, PA public library. Today it is one of the largest community libraries in the state. In 1967, she was awarded Woman of the Year by the Monroeville Chamber of Commerce. She worked as a substitute teacher and was an editor for a weekly newspaper publication, the Monroeville Times Express.
Gladys and Howard moved to Kingston, NY in 1979 and to Longwood, Florida in 1984 where she lived the rest of her life. In both communities, she continued to be active as a civic leader.
Gladys will be dearly missed by so many. She was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend to all.
