Toys For Tots 

What could be a more cheerful way to end 2017 than to donate toys for the Marine Reserve's Toys For Tots campaign, visit with Porsche friends in the D-Patrick showroom, and share a tasty catered lunch from the Acropolis restaurant?

We did this in December of 2016 and thought it was a great success, but this year was even better! More members participated and our contributions filled the trunks of a 911, a Panamera, and a Cayenne.

After depositing our toys we had plenty of time to visit, compare holiday plans, and talk about Porsches. After all, we are a fun group.

There were a few toys for big kids on display, too. Some of us imagined the driving pleasures and economic pains we might encounter by buying the bright yellow 914 in the D-Pat showroom. Similar thoughts came to mind when Emil Weber parked his new Lamborghini outside.

Soon it was time to assemble and hand off our collected toys to the Marine Corps Reserve. Tony Ricketts welcomed us. Scott Klueh spoke briefly about the day's event. A representative of the Marine Corps Reserves thanked us for our contributions to the Toys For Tots campaign.

Then we carried all the presents out to the Toys For Tots truck.

We soon filled it and needed a second vehicle.

D-Patrick provided an SUV for the rest of the toys.

Then we posed for this group photo. Pictured are (in no particular order): Scott Klueh and Linda Barth, Bob and Melinda Myers, Chris and Diane Hancock, Brice Klueh, Scott and Genise Huey, Manuel and Dee Dee Ramirez, Gary and Rosie Stroud, Criss and Macie Yelton, Loren and Sue Urfer, Greg and Kelly Eyer, Benny and Lee Ann Tennyson, Dave and Gail Hostetter, Terry Davis, John Flesburg, David Skelton, Keith Snyder, Wayne and Linda Parks, Rich Gustafson, Gary Meier, Mark Faris, Shad Brown, Randy Brown, Emil Weber, Phil Green, Greg Collins, Tom Southwell, Norman Hurst, Dale Fatland, Larry and Debbie Vandagriff, Jeff and Debbie Jackson, Mark and Cheryl Roethemeier, Jerry and Susan Jindrich, Kelly and Michele Dora, Mike Zehner, Tony Ricketts (from D-Patrick), Doors and Ellada Hadjisavva (from Acropolis Restaurant).

The following people attended but were not included in the group photo: Bret Grimes, Dawn Green, Sharon Burks-Maier, Eric Provost, Jan Weber, Mitch Deep. If I missed anyone, please let me know and I will correct the list.

Finally, it was time for lunch and more casual time with friends.

This event capped another strong year for our club. We added many new members, enjoyed great driving and social events, and expect to enjoy 2018 even more.
