Early May 2023



Greetings and Salutations,

I know given the current conditions it might be hard to believe, but it is actually Spring.  Much like the May flowers in the nursery rhyme the April showers have yielded a bloom of ARPCA events.

We have Wine Tastings and Go Karting for the Women of ARPCA.  There’s an outing with the Porsche Touring Crew, seasoned with a little Rat Pack flare.  We have Great Saturdays at The Lot and details about the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix have been published.  Links and information about everything below.

Here’s to seeing you out there (hopefully, without an umbrella,)
