December Meeting Summary

December, 2022 by Pat Whissel

December OCF Meeting Revised-Car Show/Lunch

OCF members met on December 17, in Odessa at the monthly meeting of the Keystone Motor Car Club. Weather and unexpected illness forced us to revise the December meeting plans. However, everything worked out very well. There were fourteen members who attended the car show. Don Miller, Pat and Kay Higgins, Karen and Leo Stutzman, Rick and Pat Whissel, Sylvie Nevenkin, Dave and Joyce Schmitt drove their Oldsmobiles and were joined by Harry Wedding and Mark Haberkorn with is little dog, Corky. Unfortunately, Mark had to bow out early so we didn’t get to visit with him for very long. Unexpectedly, the weather was very good—not too hot or too cold and sunny during the show. 

Don Miller, a newer member, drove his modified 1970 F85 Sports coupe. We enjoyed getting to know him and his Oldsmobile better.

We also learned about Harry and Debbie Wedding’s “new” Oldsmobile. At meeting time, it was in the shop getting a “spa treatment” to make it ready to drive and show. They acquired it from their good friends Pat and Kay Higgins. Harry is really excited to have another Oldsmobile in the family—it’s been a while.

We left Odessa about 11:45 for the Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Dan and Paula Saracki and Paul and Kerri Berman joined us there for lunch. The service and the food were excellent. Everyone had a great time visiting. Kay Higgins brought some Florida snowmen ornaments for each family and some delicious desserts to share. It was a great day!
