Editor's Notebook - Nov 2007

We at CTCC excitedly welcome new members Jerry and Pat Peterson of Des Plaines, Illinois. As long-standing members often attest, CTCC is more than just a car club. The Classic Thunderbird Club of Chicagoland is a group of enthusiasts who come together for reasons well beyond their automobiles. We are looking forward to seeing Jerry and Pat at upcoming events.

Get Well Wishes from CTCC!
Although Paul Mounts has suffered a setback from his recent surgery, he is now (again) on-the-road-to-recovery! If he adheres to his Doctor's orders, he should be "back to normal" in the near future.

T-Bird-Club forms in TN
News from our two "transplanted" CTCC members indicates that the Anthony's and Jurkonie's are well on their way to forming a new Chapter Club in Tennessee!
Perry notes that there are some 20-area T-Bird owners who are interested in becoming Charter Members of the new Thunderbird Club.

In Remembrance - Linda Sroka
It is with sadness and a deep sense of loss for all of us that I note the passing of CTCC member Linda Sroka on October 10, 2007. Bob and Linda joined CTCC in February of 1999, and both became active members, participating in numerous Club events. We extend our deepest sympathy to Bob and Linda's family as we share in their loss.

As 2007 marches full circle...
keep in mind the upcoming calendar events for November and December.

Thursday, November 8th: MEMBERSHIP MEETING at Russell's BBQ beginning at 7:30 p.m. and coordinated by Ken Smizinski.

Saturday, December 8th: CTCC ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY at Chandler's Restaurant in Schaumburg coordinated by Ken and Kathy Smizinski. Check the "CTCC Holiday Party 2007" posting for more information and reservations.

Here is a real example: "Your seat cushions can be used for floatation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."
