We are starting the 2020 membership year with FIVE new members and for the moment our current membership stands at 187. That number includes those five new members, the 2019 members who already renewed for 2020, and the rest of the 2019 members who have yet to renew, but more on that in a separate article in this issues.
Our FIVE new members are:
Neal and JD Callender live in McLean, Virginia and have a 1979 MG B they've owned for about four years. They found us via cars & coffee in Great Falls, Virginia. Neal indicates he could use some help with interior refinishing and can offer assistance with exterior paint & details and mechanical matters.
Eric Carey has owned his 1969 MG B for about five years and lives in Arlington, Virginia. Our friends at London Auto pointed him in our direction and he has neither need that requires assistance or expertise to share.
Don and Melody Gallagher live in Olney, Maryland have owned their 1974 MG B for 1.2 years. Like Eric, Don at present has neither need that requires assistance or expertise to share. We can thank Mr. Google for sending Don our way.
Mark Grapin has a Carmine Red 1979 MG Midget (yea, another Midget owner in the club!) he's owned for less than a year. We can thank a nameless member for tagging Mark's car with one of our "car tagging" membership applications. Mark can share his general mechanical expertise and is not yet aware of anything he might need assistance with.
Jeff and Barb Nooger live in Warrenton, Virginia. The 1978 MG B they owned for 30 years sadly has moved on, but do not fear as they are three months into ownership of a 1962 MG A MkII. Our good friend and current member Bill Marshall recommended us … thank you Bill!
And as always, I exhort you to keep an eye out for fellow MG enthusiasts, and should you happen across one whilst out and about ask them if they are a member of our club. If they aren’t, invite them to join. Please download a current version of the membership application or the “car tagging” application from our web site so you can leave one whenever you seen a stationary MG and can’t identify the owner (it works, see above). If you are able to speak to the owner you can also direct them to our web site at www.mgcarclubdc.com or to me.
If you have any questions please let me know.
