Special thanks also to those who pitched in for Adopt-a-Highway on Oct. 31, and our new hosts, June and Tim Smith.

We have confirmed dates for the Kruse Automobile Auction (see info below), so we are looking to sign up volunteers
Our second annual Turkey Run is this Saturday! Help us help those in need. The club will buy the turkeys – we just need your help delivering them. More info on the Web site soon, and at the meeting.

Happy Motoring! - Mark Neumann
Kruse is back!
After reading the stories about Kruse's financial woes, we were contemplating no auction this year for the GTO Club. But the company has signed a commitment with the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa (9495 W. Coyotes Blvd. Glendale) and the auction will run January 8th-10th. 
The club needs your support to make the auction a success. We'll have more details at the meeting on Thursday. Don't forget the other auctions in the Valley in January! Click here to get a list
