TC Motoring Guild’s First Female President Now In Office

After more than six decades, TC Motoring Guild’s first female president took the gavel at our January meeting.  The only other woman to take the reins was Bobbie Simon in March of 1995, who as VP stepped in at a meeting when the president was absent.  Congratulations to Sandra and TCMG on this important step forward in our 65-year history!

January recap: 20 members attended our January meeting, with three TCs parked outside driven by Simmons, Loe and Olson.  Many thanks to Gene Olson for putting on another fun night of TC-related trivia games, where the men finally broke the women’s team’s winning streak.
