Greetings Members of ARPCA,

We are approaching the end of the “Dog Days of Summer” so named due to the appearance of Sirius (aka the Dog Star) in the sky with the rising and setting of the Sun.  Ancient Roman beliefs held that the appearance of Sirius in the sky provided additional heat giving rise to this long hot stretch of weather.

While the Dog Days might be nearing an end the Summer fun for ARPCA members is still going strong.  See below for more information about Porsche at the Lot, Cars ‘N’ Coffee, Cars ‘N’ Carls, the Porsche Touring Crew, and a return to the Grand Concourse.

Stay cool out there,

Porsche Touring Crew – August 23rd, 2022

ARPCA’s Porsche Touring Crew – for the most part, a gaggle of good-humored malcontents and aging contrarians — always seems to be doing things “their own way.” And PTC is adding to that reputation with a mid-Summer quest for the best Italian eatery in the area.

The Crew has announced plans to re-convene August 23rd for an excursion to Angelo’s (www.angelosrestaurant.com), a third-generation Washington County eatery with a widespread reputation for excellence and innovative, as well as quality.  It all started back in 1939 with Angelo and Giacomina Passalacqua opened a small neighbor tavern in Washington.

Draft – Mid April- 2022

 

Hello,

As always, I am on the look out for Porsche information, trivia, fun facts and the like to share.  This time I have a birthday to celebrate.  On April 25, 1931, Professor Porsche had his company officially entered in the commercial register according to Porsche.com. Which would indicate that the company is nearly 91 as you are reading this.  That’s a lot of candles.

If you’re not up for cake and party hats there are a plenty of ARPCA events in the offing that are definitely celebratory in their own right (candles optional.)

Best Regards
