On August 31, 2017 our club awarded a plaque to John Saksa and Findlay Cadillac. Essentially it reads:
12 years. That’s how long we’ve had a relationship with Findlay Cadillac. We’ve had several people at the helm of the club and through it all, they have supported our club.
In a conversation with John, he feels that we are Brand Ambassadors and we are. Every time we show up anywhere in any age Cadillac, we’re promoting our club, Findlay Cadillac and of course ourselves.
We have a very successful relationship with Findlay. Thank you John for 12 great years, we’ll look forward to another 12!!!!
September 23, 2017 at Village Square, 5 PM
As many of you know, in a Club or not-for-profit, many people often go unthanked for their dedication and service. It’s never one person, it takes a TEAM dedicated to making this happen. Here is a partial list for this event (in no particular order):
- Gary Weaver – Inspiration, working with the Village Square management and figuring out exactly how we’re going to get 120 or so cars parked in a timely fashion
- Carolyn Weaver – Inspiration, advertising, registration flyer, promotion
- Findlay Cadillac – Sponsor, advertising, video (John Saksa and LJ Harness)
- Jerry Taylor – Video services
- John Bergler – Award for Findlay Cadillac
- Membership booth – We need volunteers for this 4 hour window of time on the 23rd of September
- Registration – We need volunteers for this 4 hour window of time on the 23rd of September
Thank you everyone!
Mike Conforti with his award winning 1961 Cadillac Convertible
CONGRATULATIONS to Mike Conforti a long time member of our region and before that he was a member of the NY region. Mike is a Cadillac Car guy. No doubt about that.
There’s also no doubt that Mike has been a real hard worker. For years he has been managing our parade appearances. He also sets up the food and drink for the annual picnic PLUS almost anything you ask him to do.
In his honor the Emeritus Award was created. He is the first person to receive it. Here’s what it says:
This Certifies that Mike Conforti as a reward for his years of service to the members of the Las Vegas Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club. His privileges include the suspension of local dues, attendance at Board Meetings with the ability to advise and vote and all other regular member benefits.
Mike, on behalf of every member, THANK YOU for what you’ve done in the past and what we know you’ll continue to do when you can. You are an invaluable member of our club.
114 Years of Excellence, Design and Quality. For many of us, Cadillac is once again the Standard of the World! This month celebrates that birthday.
We want to thank John Bergler in our club for designing this beautiful Bavarian Cream cake. I can tell you this, it was gone when we left the meeting.
Yum . . .
This picture was taken at the Monterey Concours d’elegance held in 2017. If you want to see more, click here. As you can clearly see, this car is an amazing design. According to our John Saksa, it has to be seen to be really appreciated.
We’re already looking at unique Cadillacs for next year’s Cadillac Through The Years. This would turn a few heads.
What do you think?
