35th Celebration! 2003
      Saturday, August 2nd turned out to be a nice sunny day on Lake Ontario in Oswego for the SCC 35th Anniversary Celebration/Club Picnic.
      Barb and I arrived early to set up the SCC History Road Show. Packing 35 years worth of shirts, hats, picture boards, big canvas club banner, two coffee pots, salads and stuff along with one VERY BIG cake into my '59 was not an easy chore and then driving 26 miles like you've got a cake in the trunk.
      We were soon joined by Ed and Sandy Sutton who brought even older club stuff. We had everything displayed before members arrived while Jerry and Ron set up for the SCC Annual Picnic.
       In all 80+ members  attended and past Presidents representing 17 years. Presidents in attendance were
  • Ernie Wheeler- 1998-1999-2003
  • Art Petrozzi-2002
  • Jeff Bernatovich- 1996-1997-2000-2001
  • Jack Birchmeyer- 1992-1993
  • Ric Rivette- 1985
  • Bob Sperry- 1982
  • Tom Schaeffler-1978
  • Rich Mizerski-1977
  • Ed Sutton- 1976
  • Roger Preston-1972-1973   (Who along with his wife, the former First Lady Dianna Preston, came up from Florida to join our celebration!

Stories were told and newer members got to see and hear Club history from some of the dedicated people who made the SCC what it is today, 35 years old and 160+ members and GROWING!

Beautiful Pewter 35th Anniversary Commemorative  Key Fobs were given to Past presidents and Club members in attendance.

For a car club to still be strong and growing after 35 years says a lot about it's membership and leaders past and present!
