Veterans Day Cruise
Wednesday, November 11th, 2020

It is a great tradition of the Rhody Cruisers to support the Veterans Day Parade, and Honor our Veterans.

The Veterans Day Parade Committee has concluded that we are unable to conduct a traditional parade for 2020 because of the COVID issues. In lieu of that, we are combining forces with Rhody Cruisers, Florence Jeeps R Us, and several VSO's (Band of Brothers, DAR, VFW, etc.) to conduct a 'Veterans Honor Cruise' on Veterans Day, Wednesday November 11th.

• Here is the plan... We'll be staging at the Florence Christian Church (2nd & Ivy) at 1:30 p.m. and do one loop thru Old Town then continue up Kingwood to 9th and then drive past Spruce Point, back down 9th to Spruce and past Shorewood and Regency to honor their resident Veterans. We'll have route maps available that day.

As this will be a rolling cruise only, with no pedestrians or floats, we encourage you to decorate your vehicles with American flags, branch service flags, patriotic bunting etc. only; however NO advertising, NO political statements etc. The focus is honoring our Veterans. We also encourage you to carry a Veteran who is a friend/relative.

We have held an annual Florence Veterans Day parade since 2006 and this will be the first year we've missed.  I hope you'll be joining me that day to honor those of you and those in our community who have served our country. 

Thanks! to Cal Applebee for setting this up for our Veterans

NOTE:  Cruisers:  Please invite veterans as passengers for your cars.
Search them out and share the activities of the day with them.

Rhody Cruisers Christmas Gathering
In my last Newsletter, I offered an option for our traditional Christmas Gathering. Dennis and Sue met with the Elks Club to work out a menu and available dates. 

Members were asked to vote on how to proceed.
Of the 74 members who viewed the eMail, only 6 actually responded. The Vote was 3 In Favor, 3 Against. As a result of only .08% response, I can only conclude there is no interest in continuing the discussion.
As a result, there will be no Christmas Gathering this year. 
I know everyone is concerned with the virus issue, and I am not enthusiastic about a gathering either. What does concern me is the lack of participation by Rhody Cruisers Members. By being a Club member, you have a responsibility to participate in the management and planning of our events. 99.92% did not click the blue text to say YES or NO. That is really pitiful. I don't know how to make it easier. 

November Club Meeting
Due to the lack of a meeting facility, and predicted rain, there will be no
Rhody Cruisers Meeting this month. 
Weekly Coffee Cruise:
Old Town Coffee is open for inside seating.  Members are meeting for Coffee and Chatter every:
Thursday morning at 9:00 AM. 
A great time to find out what's happening for the week end.
