Upcoming Activity Changes and Cancellations

Because the safety of our members is our primary concern, the planned Annual Meeting and Holiday Party on December 6 in Burbank has been cancelled.  The meeting will now be held online via Zoom on December 6 and 6:00 PM.  Other holiday activities may be planned.  Check back soon for updates.

Other upcoming activities may also be postponed or cancelled depending on what happens with the continued virus situation. Check this website for the latest updates and status of other upcoming TCMG activities.



Our final meeting for the year is the Annual Meeting and Holiday Party on December 6.  Due to Covid-19 concerns, the in-person party has been cancelled and the meeting will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM.  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact Steve Simmons or David Edgar.

Fundraiser to benefit Foster Children’s Resource Center.  The center provides emergency clothing and necessities to foster children referred by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). It gives each child new school clothing, a jacket, pajamas, socks, underwear, personal care items, a backpack, school supplies, a book, and a toy. Each child is given personal attention and treated with dignity and respect, helping them to feel special.  TCMG is donating $500, and one of our members has offered to match other member’s donations up to an additional $500.  CLICK HERE for donation information.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in their TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

November recap: 26 members attended our November virtual (online) meeting.  Five TCs drove a “simulated journey” to the meeting.  Those TCs were driven by Edgar, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, and Simmons.

November Recap: 7 TCs participated in our November “Thankful Photos” do it yourself event.  Those who sent photos and received Sargent points were Edgar, Lemieux, Loe, Hunsberger, Simmons, Spiegel and Zucca.

October Recap: 18 members and guests with four TCs and other classics participated in our 64th Annual Conclave with the Abingdon Rough Riders in San Luis Obispo.  Many thanks to Howard Shempp and all who helped make the event happen, even on a limited basis, while keeping our members safe during this pandemic.  See the Conclave Pages for a full report.
