President's Message,    November - December 2019

As your new president,  I want to introduce myself to you.  My name is Patrick Oipari, a 32 year member of the WPC Club.  My wife Mary and I have been married for 59 years, have 5 children, 10 grandchildren and almost 2 great-grandchildren.  I retired from the Detroit Police Dept. as a sergeant after 32 years in 1995. 

Since joining the WPC Club, Mary and I have been active members in the Great Lakes Region, serving as president and secretary.  Mary served many years as the treasurer.  Our interest in Chrysler Corp. cars began in 1986, when we purchased a restored 1941 Plymouth  pick truck, and 13 years later we added a 1963 Dodge Polara 500 convertible.

On to WPC Club business.  I want to welcome back to our Board of Directors Kevin McCabe and Don Piscatelli, both long time members.  They bring many years of service as previous board members. 

We welcome Frank Pascoe, who has accepted the position of Editor, who has already dug into the task of preparing the next issue.Iím sure Frank will introduce himself.Welcome Frank.

There will be some changes to the manner in which we accept membersí ads for the inclusion in the WPC News.Beginning with the next issue of the WPC News, any existing ad not containing the WPC membership # will be removed from print.All ads must be submitted on typed on 8.5 x 11 plain paper.†† Free ads are limited to 50 words, not including name, address, WPC number, phone #, & Email address,and should describe the product for sale and price as you want it to appear in the ad.Hand written ads on napkins, back of envelopes and paper towel are hard to read and will not be accepted.

Since my last message, I have reviewed all available reports, documents, and bank statements that revealed serious raiding on the club bank account.The assault on our financial health has contributed greatly to our inability to produce the remaining three 2019 issues of the WPC News.†† We will begin 2020 with the Jan/Feb issue.I wish to thank all those of you who sent messages of support and encouragement as we work together to correct the issues that put us in this position.Please note the new address to send your membership renewal to, if you donít use the club on line renewal.Mail should go to our Treasurer, Wayne Simonson, 63770 Indian Trail, Ray, MI 48096.

Members of your Board of Directors have been extremely busy, updating our membership Roster after a long period of neglect.Thank you - Bill, Terry and Ian.

The 2020 National Meet will once again return to the Auburn Hills Marriott, 3600 Centerpoint Parkway, in Pontiac Michigan.Reservations can be made by calling 248-253-9800 in the name of the WPC Club. The Meet will begin on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 concluding with a brunch awards presentation on Sunday July 12, 2020.†† New for this year:Awards will NOT be delivered to award winners who are not present on the final day.†† It will be your responsibility to make arrangements with friends to pick them up.Make your reservations early as we were not permitted to block as many rooms as last year.More on this will be in the Jan-Feb issue of the WPC News.With that said, Mary and I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
