Mid November 2023


Members of the ARPCA,

Registration for the holiday party closes tonight at 11:59PM Thursday November 16th.  You still have time to sign up if you’ve been waiting until the last minute.  If you’re waiting for a sign, and the reminder sent out last weekend wasn’t enough, here’s another.

Sign up for the holiday party at the Grand Concourse!


Does that qualify as subliminal advertising?  Perhaps it was too subtle.

Anyway, the calendar is a bit sparse as the holidays advance upon us.  No worries though, I am sure the Porsche Touring Crew is laying plans for their next season.  The Executive Board will announce venues for the monthly meetings.  The Women of ARPCA will undoubtedly surprise us with unique events and opportunities. Before we know it the Mid-Winter party will be upon us.  I’d recommend using this holiday season to recharge and ready yourself for 2024.

Hope to see you out there,

Shawn Cressler – Web Support. Sharon Lunney – Newsletter Editor.


ARPCA – Holiday Party 2023 – November 18th

Occupying the former Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Station, the Grand Concourse represents an unmatched dining experience and a historical excursion. Constructed in 1901 and still possessing the original look, the station’s accents of brass, marble, and mahogany create Pittsburgh’s most unique dining experience all under the splendor of the majestic stained-glass cathedral roof.

Welcome the holiday season with our Porsche family in the Main Dining Room of the historic Grand Concourse restaurant on Saturday, November 18, 2023.

There will be a sit-down dinner with a choice of five entrees including Filet Mignon, Salmon Rockefeller, Chicken Milano, Vegetarian Ravioli, or Vegan Roasted Vegetables with Coconut Rice.

Appetizers, Martha’s Vineyard Salad, Key Lime Pie, coffee, tea, and iced tea are included.

A private full-service cash bar is available for alcoholic beverages.

Registration Deadline: Thursday Nov 16th, 11:59 PM – $48 per person
