New Leadership Team Member

Car Events Director

Jim Leader has volunteered to assist Jordan Rands and Bill Owen in coordinating events for the club! It's wonderful when people come forward to contribute their time and skills for the betterment of the community.

Jim's focus will be on car-related events where he can bring his knowledge and passion for automobiles to create exciting and engaging activities for club members. 

Bill has the responsibility for social events where his expertise in managing social events will be valuable in planning and executing activities that foster a sense of community and provide opportunities for members to connect and engage with one another.

With Jim and Bill working with Jordan, their combined efforts will undoubtedly lead to a well-rounded event calendar for the club. 

Once again, it's fantastic to have volunteers like Jim, Jordan, and Bill who are willing to contribute their time and skills to make the club a success. Their commitment will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the overall experience of club members.
