Rain or Shine

Good Day Coasters!

The Recreational Therapist has reached out to the Club on behalf of a resident at Totem Lodge.  She is turning 102 Years young on April 4th  2021,  so they would like to honour her with a drive by .  The resident is a lover of Classic Cars so who better to step up but the Coasters Car Club!   We will pray for good weather Sunday April 4th at 2:00.  All members who are willing and available to assemble at the Chatelach High School at 2:00pm.  Totem Lodge will be ready to see the drive by at 2:15pm.  After the drive at the Hospital we will cruise to and through Gibsons.

SDBA is planning a Canada Day Parade basically the same as last year.  When I get the details I will post the information for all members.

Just a reminder that 2020 memberships are way past due.  2021 memberships are due April 16th 2021.  Deb Gass would appreciate your prompt attention on this matter.  It is good to keep our volunteers happy❤ If you are not sure of your status Deb Gass 604-989-3176 can assist you as well as Ken Begg 604-989-8411

Thank you

Hi Diane !

I just had my AM Radio ( 1962 Thunderbird ) converted – not replaced – to play AM /FM and music from a computer stick .By looking at the radio, you cannot tell that anything has changed. I think quite a few of the Coasters might enjoy having that done to their radios . Normally I would bring this up at a meeting but seeing we’re not able to have meetings right now – do you think you could forward this to the membership ?

Thank you

Stay healthy

Update March 18, 2021

Hi just an update on what I have heard from the District of Sechelt.  They are not issuing any “special event permits” yet due to Covid-19. Rules.  We know things are loosening up but our hands are tied.  We need at least 3 months to get everything organized  to have a show.  We can’t even have a meeting to get the ball rolling before that.  We keep everybody informed as to what we are doing.  Thanks. Ken.

A message from Ken Begg

To all members of the Coasters Car Club

Just a note to let you know what is or is not happening.

We have tried a couple of times now to have an Executive meeting but the Government and the Health officials have said only “Critical Services” can be held at this time.  I have also been in contact with the District of Sechelt and their office is not issuing any Special Event Permits at this time.  They too are waiting for restrictions to be lifted or eased from Victoria.

When the restrictions have been lifted we will have a meeting to see if we have enough time to put together a show in 2021 or not.  If you have any questions or ideas on what you would like to see happen and offer your services to make them happen please e-mail Dianne Allen (Secretary and Activities Person)

dnallen6518@gmail.com     Your input is most welcomed.

We have delivered flowers to Louis Vignal and family for their Loss of their wife, mother and grandmother Darlene Vignal.

I have members cards to show membership for discounts at Lordco/ Kenmac and Napa for discounts on your automotive parts.  Please contact me at 604-989-8411 to arrange the pick up of your card.  For the Pender Harbor members please contact Glen Tietjen at 604-741-7925 for pick up of cards.

I hope this finds you all well and looking forward to the day we can all meet again….

In deepest Sympathy

It is with Our Deepest Sympathy we announce the passing of Darlene Vignal, wife of Louis Vignal of Sechelt.  Louis and Darlene have been long standing members of the Coasters Car Club.  As club members know, Louis was instrumental in creating Sleepy Hollow.  Darlene battled hard with her illnesses and sadly she succumbed on March 1st,  2021.  Darlene will be sadly missed by all who knew her.  Our condolences to Louis, Louis Jr, Lisa and families.
