Dear Club Members,
The Holiday Party and annual business meeting was hosted at the home of Bob Cess and Vito in Litchfield, CT. A hearty buffet was consumed, gifts were exchanged and I was
elected as the club president for 2017. Please help me to make the coming year a success for our club.
In addition to our regularly scheduled second Sunday and fourth Saturday breakfast meetings, we are planning a number of special events. These include Go-Karting in March, a trip to the NY Auto Show in April, Connecticut back-road tours in the spring and fall and a trip to the Montreal Alfa Romeo Convention in July. I would also like you to be aware of the opportunities afforded by our neighboring Alfa Romeo Clubs. Both AONE (Alfa Owners of New England) and NYAROC (New York Alfa Romeo Owners Club) have touring events and parties that we are welcome to attend. Also, the Northeast Coast Chapter of the Fiat Club America has a long list of Italian car events. Please let me know if you have an idea for a special event for our club.
I encourage all club members to check the AROC-CT member map to make sure that you are on it and also please take the time to forward a list of Italian cars owned to me so that we can update the 'Members Cars' listing.
Please be safe and have a wonderful year,
Roger W. Carlson
Alfa Romeo Owners Club of Connecticut.
