From the Driver’s Seat – January 2022
As you read this, it is time to wish you all a Happy New Year 2022. The Christmas season flew by and we have completed another trip around the sun. The decorations have been stored and resolutions made and some already forgotten. The new year is here with hopes for a better year than the last as we look ahead .
A year ago, we were forced to forego our traditional club Christmas party at Sand Canyon CC but this December our Activities people forged ahead with plans for a 2020 party even though our regular location was again not allowing parties. We opted to gather at Knollwood Country Club for Christmas Party 2021 even as LA City dictated stringent restrictions. Our attendance numbers were nonetheless excellent as we gathered, dined and danced. Our party was a fitting end to a year in which we met our goal of meeting together, whether it was on Zoom or driving to Fillmore or now enjoying our now local site at Santa Clarita Lanes. You all did it, you kept us going for another year despite the challenges we faced.
December gave us other opportunities to gather as well. We enjoyed an excellent caravan to Bunnin Santa Paula Chevrolet to support their traditional Toys for Tots event. We joined with Ventura County Corvette Club and Redline Corvettes to donate toys to support the Matine Reserve event and also to enjoy the delicious burrito breakfast the dealership provided. Thanks to all who participated.
We also held our second food drive of 2021 at Sam’s Club to support the Santa Clarita Food Pantry. Your participation was outstanding and coupled with the generous donations of Sam’s shoppers, our contribution to the community surpassed our prior drives. Great job SCVCC!
I know you are all looking forward to what is planned for the months ahead. We have a run to Jake’s Roadhouse as well as a poker run on the calendar coming up. If you haven’t already signed up you need to do so. We will be meeting for Taste of the Town at Oggi’s Pizza and Brewhouse in January too.
I hope to see you all at our January General meeting on January 6th. Put it on your list of things to do and make attending our SCVCC monthly meetings one of your resolutions for 2022.
Happy New Year to you all,
