Lisle Senior Car Clinic
Safety Inspections for Seniors’ Cars
May 11th, 2013 -- 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Naperville and Lisle Township’s Triad, a partnership organization of local government, law enforcement, and senior services providers dedicated to the safety of senior citizens, is holding a Free Car Care Clinic for Seniors. Participating seniors can have a 40-point safety inspection of their vehicles as they approach the summer driving season. This event gets larger each year. Last year, I was asked if we could have some vintage cars on display for seniors to admire as their cars were being inspected. The concept of an impromptu car show began, as we had a small gathering of several vintage cars.
Jim Evans, Barney Gaylord, and Reinout Vogt volunteered to form one of three inspection crews that went through the 40-point inspection checklist on many of the 39 cars that had arrived. We also had three MGs, a pair of Model Ts, a rat rod, and a mid-sixties Mercury convertible for our impromptu car show. We’d like to see some more cars this year!

Garage Tour #1
May 25, 2013
This event will be the first of two garage tours this year. The tour is designed to be a relaxing tour through the Northwestern suburbs making stops at four members’ garages to share stories and libations. The Garage Tours in the past have been a lot of fun and with good participation. Hope to see a lot of friends here !
There are currently five destinations— Huntley, Crystal Lake, Cary and Lake in the Hills—selected for this event. We will start in Huntley at the garage of Roger & Shirley Goebbert. We will make two stops in Crystal Lake— Wayne Schnell’s and Joe Scherb’s garage in Crystal Lake. We will continue to Cary for a quick stop at Vic L’Heureux’s house before finishing at Din’s in Lake in the Hills. Malissa will be dishing out a scrumptious lunch for us!
The Tour starting point will be: 12622 Bluebell Avenue. Huntley, IL (224) 858-4188 at 9:00 am.
