Happy Thanksgiving! From your Board of Directors, Chairs and membership, I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!!

We certainly have a lot for which to be thankful: we have had another banner year in our Region. But before we really get caught up in the holiday season, we still have several important events coming up that everyone should plan to attend:

  • Our annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, December 1st 10:00 am, at the Country Club of Asheville: this is your opportunity to provide input to your Region officers and Chairs. Your input is vital to improve the service to our membership and our Region overall! Light refreshments will be offered.
  • Our annual Christmas Holiday Gathering on Tuesday, December 11th 6:00 - 8:00 pm, at Porsche Asheville: this is our ultimate social event of the year, a chance to mix and mingle with not only fellow Appalachian Region friends but also with our friends at Porsche Asheville and other Porsche owners. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and soft drinks will be served. This year's charity is Helpmate: the organization provides services to victims of domestic violence in Buncombe County and is an independent, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Registration is requested and may be accessed by clicking on the link above.
  • A less formal event, our Monthly Social is scheduled on Wednesday, December 5th 5:00-7:00 pm (a week earlier than normal), at Highlands Brewing. And as usual, just look for white AR name badges.

In being thankful, I would like to recognize all who have contributed to our activities this year. Were I to mention names, I would surely some leave out. Suffice it to say that without the dedication of key individuals, as well as participants, we could not have had a such a great year! Thank you all!

Wishing you a safe and joyous holiday season,
