Mid December 2022

The end is nigh!

In this case it’s merely the end of 2022.  It’s been a good year with great strides to returning to normalcy. After what can generously be described as a rough couple of years.

The calendar for 2023 is already filling out with events taking shape the whole way out into Spring.  There’s the Mid-Winter party and the upcoming the Motor Tech Oil session in February. The Women of ARPCA have events for early and late March.  The Porsche Touring crew is already hard at work planning for the coming year.

Here’s to seeing you next year,

Shawn Cressler Web Support.
