PTC To Follow Woodrow Wilson
With May Road Trip to Hotel and Museum
The Porsche Touring Crew is planning a May 26 luncheon event that re-traces the century-old footsteps of an iconic American President. The PTC destination is the Saxonburg Hotel, where almost 100 years ago Woodrow Wilson registered as an overnight guest.
Wilson, who was dyslectic and didn’t read until he was 10 years old, went on to become President of Princeton University, and President of the U.S. – the latter from 1913 to 1921. He was best known for leading the country through the first World War, and later, laying the foundation for the League of Nations, credited with preserving world peace in the years that followed.
The Saxonburg Hotel opened its doors in 1832, and its period-furnished dining rooms have been a popular destination ever since. Owner Judy Feree and Executive Chef Alan Green guarantee a memorable meal featuring fresh ingredients from local suppliers with almost everything on their menu made from scratch. The Hotel offers a wide variety of comfort food, including lobster bisque, Reubens and fresh crab cakes, but also offers a selection of calorie-conscious fare. PTCr’s will order from the complete menu and will enjoy dedicated parking.
Attendees can also opt for a (free) private tour of the well-appointed Saxonburg Museum, located a short walk from the Hotel. The regional museum traces the role the area’s early immigrants in forging the area’s economy, including the early development of various types of wire cable — a building block in U.S. transportation and infrastructure growth. An original 1937 Plymouth Coupe and 1926 Studebaker Erskine that once belonged to the town’s founder, will both be on display.
The Hotel is a rural drive located a few miles off Route 8, north of Pittsburgh. Participants will gather at the venue between 11:00 and 11:30 and sit down for lunch just before 12:00 Noon.
The Touring Crew is an informal group that hosts luncheon events, and is always looking to welcome ARPCA members and their guests.
Of course, PTC will be staying in contact with all those who register, regarding any schedule changes. More information? Contact Tom Mueller (firstname.lastname@example.org, 412-651-4232) or Wayne Desbrow (email@example.com, 412-860-5700).
