Mountain Cruisers Vice President Sandy McCullar and Secretary Corrine Calhoun presented Emily Deavers, Sergeant of Arms of VFW Post 5689, with a check for $300 to be used for their Santa Claus program. The presentation was made at a Burney Chamber of Commerce Meeting on August 29 at Gepetto’s Pizza.
In the past, the post had a Santa Claus each year who gave out stockings and toys to local children. The program was discontinued but this donation will help them to bring Santa back.
Each year Mountain Cruisers hosts the car show at Rex Club Days. Proceeds from the show go to support a variety of local charities such as the schools and the library. In addition to this year’s donation to the VFW, Ms. McCullar said that the club had also donated $250 to the Round Mountain Community Center for their Christmas program. Earlier in the summer, the Mountain Cruisers also funded a free night’s swim at the Raymond Berry Community Pool.
On August 23, the Mountain Cruisers and Shasta Classics held a joint gathering at the Rancheria RV Park on Highway 89. At that time, the Mountain Cruisers held their annual meeting and elected officers for 2018-2019. The new officers are Michael Calhoun, President; Sandy McCullar, Vice President; Charlene Sickler, Treasurer; Corrine Calhoun, Secretary and Newsletter; and Ed Johnson, Sergeant at Arms.
Mr. Calhoun succeeds Ron Conley who served diligently for many years as president.
