Last Chapter Meeting of 2017
Our last Chapter Meeting of 2017 was held at the Fairgrounds Cafe in Topsham. It was a very commendable turnout, considering Maine's first "plowable" snowstorm had ended only hours earlier. Twelve members enjoyed breakfast, thoughts on this years and the coming year events, ideas and suggestions were also discussed. (check our "current" events page). Our annual Maine Chapter GAS Award for 2017 was presented to Mike Mack for his always helpful attitude, and participation at all our events this year. I for one hope neither he (or his family), lose the interest and appreciation of the marque we all feel a passion for as they are great additions to our chapter!
