On Sunday, August 19th, 2018 the Club held its annual Mystery Run. Fifteen cars with 25 members and spouses traveled from NY to Gillette Castle State Park, East Haddam Ct. We toured the William Gillette Castle and grounds. William Hooker Gillette (1853 to 1937) was an American actor-manager, playwright, and stage-manager in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is most famous for his stage portrayal of Sherlock Holmes and for the extraordinary stone castle he built on a promontory above the Connecticut River in East Haddam. After touring the Gillette Castle we traveled to the picturesque village of Essex. We had lunch at The Griswold Inn located near the foot of Main Street in Essex Village on the Connecticut River. We had a great lunch and afterwards, members headed home or stayed to do shopping. Dennis T. and Janet F. did an outstanding job organizing this event.
On Sunday, July 22nd, 2018 the Club held its 5th Annual Club Picnic at Downing Park in Yorktown Heights. It was an "all you could eat BBQ" with much more than anyone could eat.

Special thanks to Tim M. & Nick C. for the cooking, and to Pete L., Vince Q., Jimmy V. and Phil R. for going shopping in the AM. Check out the photos below, courtesy of Jim V. and Vince Q.
