May News Letter –

The May meeting of the Hastings Melon Roasters was held on Tuesday May 1st with 22 members attending.
We are still waiting to hear if we will be receiving a Sunny Side grant to help cover the cost of putting a historical marker/sign at Brickyard Park.  We also discussed having a dedicated raffle at Melon Roast to help with the cost. Steve Cropley and Everett Goebel continue to work on getting Brickyard Park its Historical Designation.
We have finalized plans to have The Disabled American Veterans Association (D.A.V.), Hastings chapter, be our Car Show Charity this year.
Hastings Boy Scout Troop 207 has volunteered to help at this years Melon Roast.  The club members agreed that we could always use extra help on show day.  So these young men will be available to help with set-up, tear-down, trash pick-up, and anything else we need help with.
Our Sonic Cruise nights are a go!  They will be held at the Sonic Drive-In in Hastings on the 3rd Friday of every month until September.  That means the first Cruise Night will be this coming Friday May 18th from 6:00pm – ?.  Remember we will be parking in the field to the south of Sonic if it is not wet and muddy. If it is wet we will park in the Sonic parking lot.
Please feel free to post on our Facebook Page if you will be traveling to a show as other may want to tag along with you.  Also post pictures of the events you attend.
Remember . . . . if you are going to a show, please get some Melon Roast Car Show fliers to hand out.  Please contact Mike Lamoree 402-469-3514, Steve Cropley 402-984-1945, or Dave Schawang 402-463-2830 to get some fliers to pass out at these events.
Last item of note:
The Antique Mall by Sonic & KFC is hosting a Flea Market outside the Antique Mall, May 25th (Friday) & May 26th (Saturday). They want to also put on a little car show in the parking lot west of KFC’s trash building area.  That also follows the grass area on the side of Sonic’s Lot. It’s from 8a.m. to 6p.m. both days. Cars can come and go as they please. Do not have to be there both days, nor do you have to be there for any long time period, if you don’t want to be. They welcome people to leave cars if they want and come back and get them anytime. Again if you just want to come for a couple hours or so and park with the show cars and go look around, they are good with that. They will have food vendors there as well as Sonic and KFC right there. Give the Antique Mall a call for any other information. Call Gary Devaney at the Mall 402-834-3620
