We had a special guest present, Mr. Bernie McIvor Jr.... He was present to thank the car club for the special award that will be awarded at the end of the year to a club member that displays the same attributes that his father “ Bernie” had shown while he was one of our members for quite a long time, as we all know Bernie left us earlier in the year and we decided to have a special memorial award in his name ..

Gene B. gave us some info on the upcoming ESRA car show slated for August 28.. The Edmonton & Area 567 club is a proud 2nd year sponsor of this show.. For those members who going to participate in this show please contact Norm, so we can “cruise” down to-gether..
It has been mentioned quite a few times that our Annual show n shine has been “postponed” for another year.. This of course is because of the Covid-19 virus/Delta variant that still “haunts’ everyone.. However it has been reported that NAPA Auto parts still wants to be part of it, once we get the “green light” to put it on... Hopefully in 2022..
