... In Memorial ...
It is my sad responsibility to report the passing of a long time Rhody Cruiser
"Cadillac" Bob Woerner. Bob was active in Veterans Groups, loved riding his Harley, driving his Corvette, and Rolling with his Classic '49 Caddy.

The Rhody Cruisers are invited to a private Viewing on Friday, Aug 30th from 5 PM - 7 PM at Burns's Riverside Chapel, 2765 Kingwood, Florence. If you would like to bring your car, that would be Cool. We hope his Cadillac will attend. 
Its time for Rods 'N Rhodies Again.
The Rhody Cruisers are very involved in this great party, and we rely on the help of members and the Florence Community to make it possible. We need your help to cover the Entry Gates and Raffle Tables on Friday and Saturday.
... I have volunteered to be responsible for the Friday Event at the Port. This is a Rhody Cruisers Event and would be proud to have it staffed by our Members.

The Rhody Cruisers had a busy 2018.

We attended dozens of Car Shows, bringing Glory and Booty to our humble group. We quickly organized a Stand-Around Show for visiting guests in June. We helped with Wings & Wheels, and made a major contribution to Rods 'N Rhodies. We participated in the Rhody Days Parade and paraded to honor our Veterans. Together we brought in donations of Christmas Joy for those in need. We paid our respect to those folks being cared for at Spruce Point and Shorewood Living. I am very proud of our little club and look forward to another year of community support, good times, and good friends. One of the best things we do is to meet monthly, and toss around ideas about upcoming events. Our around-the-room discussions are fabulous. Many thanks for that go to ...Ann, and the great staff at the A&W.
