    As November rolls in, we have to take time

    to recognize our veterans. I'd like to

    thank all of our veterans for their sacri-

    fice of time, family and their own lives. I

    have had a father, brother and now a son in

    the military. The Rebels have shown their

    appreciation by sending troop packages to

    those in the military and will continue to

    do so. If you know someone that would like

    to receive troop packages, let Sandy Fran-

    cisco know. Please take time to think about

    those who served and are now serving. They

    say to all of us that freedom isn't free. I had a great time at the Halloween Party at

    the Masters'. Thanks again, Bill and Linda,

    for hosting the party and Sandy Ready and

    other members for organizing. November is nomination month for Rebels of-

    ficers. Please note the changes for this

    year's elections. Terms for President,

    Treasurer, and one Director at Large will be

    for a one year term and Vice President, Sec-

    retary, Coordinator and the other Director

    at Large will be for 2 years. Elections

    will be held at the December meeting. It's

    not too late to volunteer for an office.

    Members need to step up and take their turn

    at helping to run the club. New blood is

    always welcome. The change in terms for of-

    fice will always insure we have experience

    on the board. If you are interested, con-

    tact someone on the nominating committee,

    Jim Holstein, Craig Foster and Sandy Fran-

    cisco. It's time for most of us to store the car(s)

    away for the winter. I will probably hold

    out until after Thanksgiving. It's time to

    work on winter projects for those with

    heated garages or for the brave souls that

    don't. It's always fun to see what happens

    over the winter. I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiv-

    ing. Hope to see you on the road soon.

    Cary Petersen, President
