|Pittsburgh Region Cadillac LaSalle Club
From the Desk of the Director
Dear Cadillac Enthusiast,
Members of the Pittsburgh Region Cadillac-LaSalle Club were rather active for 2018. In case you couldn’t join us, here is a quick summary of last year’s events:
As a local, we have grown close to 40 members. The Board of Directors has openings for volunteers to keep this momentum going throughout the year and into 2019. We would gladly welcome anyone with the time and talents for Newsletter Editor. Please contact Joe Kress or Steve Ehrin if you are interested.
February 17: We kicked-off the season with our annual Sweethearts’ Dinner at Scoglio’s Italian Restaurant in Greentree. This event was a success with more than thirty people attending.
April 21: We stretched our legs and took a run down to Wheeling, WV for a night of dinner and entertainment at the Stifel Fine Arts Center. This was another well attended event and a good time was had by all. We were quite amazed by the talent of the pianist.
May 20: We meandered down Route 51 to Elizabeth, PA for a tech session at Fayette Enterprises. The knowledgeable people at Fayette Enterprises perform many aspects of restoration from touch up of a restoration, full-blown metal fabrication, and frame-off restoration. There were demonstrations of interior restoration, metal fabrication, and paint application. Buffet lunch followed at the personal museum of Bob McKeown.
June 24: We met at the weekly Caste Village Car Show in Whitehall, PA. A good time was had by all with a bonus rain shower / car wash thrown in!
August 26: A tour of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in Washington, PA followed by an early dinner at Angelo’s Restaurant. This was well attended and Co-Director Steve Ehrin raved about the dinner and stated the beer selections at Angelo’s was exquisite.
September 9: The Pittsburgh Region Cadillac-LaSalle Club Annual Picnic & Car Show at North Park.
Thankfully, this year’s picnic was moved to an indoor venue named the Ranch House. Despite the rain, twenty people enjoyed good food and company; twenty-one if you included hurricane Gordon. Our Queen of Activities, Lisa Bucher, provided many rib-tickling games and a good time was had by all.
Once again, we had a productive year for 2018 and we wish to keep this momentum moving into 2019.
Please join us for another year of Cadillac fun !
Joe Kress & Steve Ehrin
