Club News

We just want to thank all those who came out for our first Club Drive-In Movie Night at the McHenry Outdoor Theater last night and those who were there in spirit! Despite Mother Nature not fully cooperating with us, we had a wonderful turnout and had some great classic cars out with us! I've attached a few pictures from last night to the email for all to see!
Spending a great night with great movies, cool cars and great food at the Great American Drive-In is always a wonderful experience, but more importantly, it's the people that make these events the most fun! Without you, there would be no club and it's the family-like atmosphere that makes members wanna come back for more.
For those who missed out on last night's Drive-In experience, not to worry! We have two more Club Drive-In Movie Nights planned for this season.......AUGUST 16TH and SEPTEMBER 6TH!! We were even told by the owner of the McHenry Outdoor Theater that they could possibly look into showing two or three classic car flicks for September 6th as part of the theater's Throwbacks Night, which begins sometime in August. So stay tuned for details later down to the road.
Again, on behalf of Tim, Joe, myself (Freddy) and all those involved with the club, thank you again and we look forward to seeing all of you throughout the season at car shows, cruise nights, and other fun get-together's we plan on hosting!!!
Fellow Streeters member, Carole Olenick, has compiled a cookbook of over 400 recipes and tips & tricks.
She is selling this book for $20 to help raise funds for transporting seniors in the McHenry County. This is a great cause as it helps our seniors get around to shopping, doctor visits, etc. If you are interested in some great recipes, give Carole a call. Here is her information:

FRIDAY NIGHT CRUISE NIGHTS IN RICHMOND ARE BACK!!!! That's right!! After several years of hosting its cruise nights on Thursdays, the Richmond Dog and Suds is returning to Friday nights to host its weekly cruise nights!! Now we know there are several other cruise nights taking place on Fridays, but for many members in the McHenry area, this used to be one of most popular events in the area and it's hoping to eventually make a return to the top!

I made this list from the suggestions that I received for Chrome Plating shops for the request I received from a co-worker last week. Since then I received requests from members to put together a list for the membership. So I put some time in collecting them all and putting them together, with all the comments and members names that suggested them onto one document.

I just want to congratulate ALL FIVE of the Streeters that swept the awards for the Best Homemade dishes at Doc's Fall Car Show!
Our winners were Kevin and Amanda Lehnning, Nicole Thomas, Kim Gableson, and Larry Reisner! (Photo of our Winners attached with this Email)

The Registration to get into Doc's Fall Car Show is to bring a homemade dish... An Entree, Appetizer, Salad, Casserole, or Dessert. Each dish is voted on by all the participants of the car show after tasting all the delicacies! Donations and the 50/50 Raffle helped raise money that went to pay for Care Packages that will be sent out to the troops overseas, along with items donated to go in them as well.
Kraig "Doc" Bryan is one of our club members, who puts on this terrific event! The early morning rain kept some of the cars away, but NOT the fun and the spirit of a great show with a tremendous cause behind it.
Many, many thanks to ALL of our club members and other show-goers who attended and supported this event!
And the same goes to ALL the Streeters that supported other Car Shows today and throughout the 2014 Season!

There were a total of 9 winning Drive-Ins overall, as Honda announced recently that they would extend the voting to give four more theaters a chance to win a projector too. Read more
