2020 MAY TOUR RESCHEDULED
|Posted by angholbrook on August 20, 2021 at 5:15 PM||comments ()|
The May Tour committee has decided to reschedule the 2020 May Tour to mid 2022 because of the continuing Covid 19 pandemic. We sincerely hope that by mid 2022 enough people will have been vaccinated to make holding the May Tour events a safe endeavour for all involved.
If you have prepaid some or all your registration, you can leave it with us and thus reserve your spot in the 2022 Tour or request a full refund.
We appreciate the support you have given us since we started planning the Tour in 2019 for a May 2020 extravaganza and anticipate your continued support as we navigate these unusual times on our way to a safe 2022 May Tour. We also appreciate the cooperation shown by the National President and the Powell River and Island Chapters in allowing us to make this adjustment to our May Tour.

Valentine's Run - 2020

19 Vehicles and their occupants took a leisurely drive down Lougheed Highway and over the MIssion Bridge through Matsqui and arrived at the home of Doug Taylor. We were able to tour his beautiful collection of cars and memorabilia before travelling to the Old Spaghetti House in Langley for a late lunch.
This was a great beginning to another season of tours - this one hosted by Bev and Don Clark. The Nichol's brought along heart cookies for everyone to set the mood while we waited for everyone to muster. Prior to leaving Bev Clark presented each car with a carnation and more heart shaped cookies.
Bev presented Doug & Paula Taylor a beautiful plant for a thankyou for allowing us to tour their extensive collection, which includes the award winning 1957 Ford Fairlane, Retractable hardtop.
We ended our day at the Old Spaghetti House in Langley where we all enjoyed a wonderful pasta meal and had great conversation.

Founding Member celebrating 60th Wedding Anniversary
|Posted by angholbrook on March 10, 2019 at 6:35 PM||comments ()|
MISSION, B.C. — She was a minister’s daughter. He was considered to be from the wrong side of the tracks. They were in love. It’s an old story with a happy ending. Don and Lilah Warren (founding member of Golden Ears Chapter VCCC) celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary several months ago and the romance continues
The couple beams with pride as they pose in their anniversary attire beside their nearly-completed ‘new’ 1951 Monarch sport sedan. The car brings back a flood of memories from a time when a man had to ask for a woman’s hand only after getting permission from her parents. Of course, eloping was an option.

There were 10 cars out to the Pitt Meadows Day Parade. We saw several of our famous and returning members - (Alphabetically organized: Bob Edwards, Al Hemminger, Angela Holbrook, John & Phyllis Roberts, Bruce Sims & friend, Richard & Marlene Ulmer, Ted Wingrove and Gary & Katelon Zabenskie). Charlie & Lucille Piddocke, and Al Magnusson were seen on the sidelines. We also welcomed Bill Dingwall who finished restoring his 1970 Dodge Challenger, what a beauty.
The weather turned out great and there were large crowds along the parade route.
Have a great summer. Drive safely until we see you again.
