The President's Message


As the year winds down, we can look back at this past Met year and realize how quickly it has passed us by.  As we look forward, we certainly need to appreciate how very fortunate we are to live in countries where we are allowed so many freedoms in our daily lives.   Certainly, everything is not completely rosy, as the current economic times are impacting many of us, or those around us.  We have so many things to be thankful for, yet others around the world can only dream of having in their lives.

 There are so many to list, and each of us has many different ones.  This is a good time to sit down and list out all of the things you have to be thankful for and all of the liberties you enjoy.  Once done, you will have a long list.  We are very blessed!  Can other citizens and nations outside of North America have lists like ours?  Very doubtful!  Many thanks go out to our military troops stationed around the world who continue to put their lives at stake to insure that these lists remain intact and will still be around for generations to come.  We are very fortunate that they have chosen to be our “protectors” for our way of life and ideals. 

One of the line items on my list is our “Met Family”.  Here is a group of individuals, from all walks of life, who have a common interest in automobiles and especially the classic “Met”.  Not only are the Mets a common bond, but so are the growing friendships that have developed via our association with this inanimate object, most of which have been given names.  We become family as we enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship of each other and the group, but also, as we have concern over the well being of each other, through the “up” and “down” times.  We are blessed to have each other.  May each of you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.  2020 will be another special “Met” year.
