It does not get much better than this, beautiful day, magnificent cars, delicious food, and fabulous fellowship was what it was all about at the annual picnic hosted by NNJS & SJS on Saturday, September 20, 2014.

For the 27th year the picnic was held at John Bleimaiers Falkenhorst in beautiful Hopewell, NJ. With over 40 cars on the field and about 100 people in attendance, it was a great day to walk around in the sunshine and vote for your favorite car in each of seven categories.

This year we had the picnic catered by Ribdiculous BBQ which gave several of our members time to relax and chat instead of manning the grills! Chef Charlie and BBQ Master Alex did a fabulous job of cooking the burgers to order, not to mention the outstandingly delicious Cowboy Baked beans!

The winners were called up by category, had their picture taken, and then when all the winners were announced we took a group shot. The first place winners were then able to select their prize from table, followed by the second place winners, and then the third place winners. In keeping with the Fall theme, the prizes consisted of scarecrows on a pole, standing scarecrows, and fall floral baskets.

Thank you to all who participated in the Silent Auction at our September picnic. The proceeds amounted to $225.00 which were sent to Covenant House in NYC. Some of you may know that Covenant House feeds, clothes and tries to get teenagers/young people in house from sleeping out on the street in all weather elements.

Thank you to Laura Hall, Nora Ochwat & Lucille Chabala for helping out. Your donated articles and bids for the Silent Auction are greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Loni Spingarn for once again conducting our successful 50/50. Thanks also to Ralph Esposito for donating the compact cloth shopping bags which Valerie Cristiano was able to hand out as the cars registered.

A great time was had by all. A special Thanks to all those who helped to make the day a super success.
