  1. Ladies and Gentlemen: The AACA Museum, for which we will be visiting during our 50th Anniversary Celebration, has kindly agreed to display BCA member cars during that week as a highlight and tribute to our event. The display period is Monday, July 25 to Monday, August 1. I have two cars so far: A 1990 Reatta Select 60 and a 1977 Buick Regal 2 Door Colonnade. We have room for two more, if another/more BCA member(s) would like to be included in the display. Please contact me: Jeff1952@tts-us.com if you would like to participate. Thanks!
  2. Good Registration News to be shared with all of our members. We have crossed the first Registration threshold with 1010 Registrants. 470 Beautiful Buick's and counting.
  3. Want to ride a roller coaster before we get to the July Celebration?? Don't live near Dorney but want to go to Cedar Point or King's Island for a great cause? Check this out! https://Arthritis.CedarFair.com Dear Friend, We have teamed up with Cedar Fair, Inc., for a very special awareness and fundraising campaign benefiting our mission to conquer and cure arthritis.Enjoy awesome summertime fun at amusement parks in Ohio and Pennsylvania, all while championing the fight against arthritis! From now through June 15, Cedar Fair is offering discount tickets to Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH), Kings Island (Cincinnati, OH) and Dorney Park (Allentown, PA), plus a donation to the Foundation for every ticket sold. In addition, Cedar Fair will donate all proceeds from spare change collection boxes set throughout the park to the Foundation during JA Awareness Week, May 20th-29th. And, as if this isn't awesome enough, each park will host one JA family during that week and broadcast arthritis information and stories on TV monitors throughout all three parks during JA Awareness Week. These special discount tickets can only be purchased online at https://Arthritis.CedarFair.com and can be used from May 14 through June 15, 2016, after which they can be used by paying an additional surcharge at the gate. Purchase your tickets and help us conquer arthritis today! Don't be selfish! Help others increase their summertime fun (and our fundraising and awareness initiative) by sharing this email with others. Anyone can buy these special discount tickets. So forward this email to your friends and neighbors...heck, even that grumpy guy you work with!

Chapters who wish to have a table(s) to sell their merchandise, need to send me a message and let me know the number of tables and the days you will need those tables.
