October Celebrations











25th ED JOHNSON & KIM                    KAEHLER

The Golden Years

Part of our clubs 'rodacomerie' is the concern we have for each others well being.  If you or any other Coachmen or friends are having specific health issues, surgeries, etc. please let us know, and if you'd rather maintain your privacy, we'll respect that too.

    Mike Mirkay and Dale Skyes are having some health concerns.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.


    No new Covid-19 cases reported within the club.

Dale Skyles Birthday Parade

It was good to see such a good turn out of support for Dale Skyles 70th Birthday.  His wife and son arranged to have a surprise birthday parade for him on Saturday, Oct. 10th. Sixteen Coachmen participated in the parade as well as numerous members from other clubs that Dale is a member of.  We all drove past his house where he was sitting in his front yard.  He seemed overwhelmed.  We hope you had a great birthday, Dale!

Team Caleb Charity Car Show

Another successful car show for Team Caleb and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Thanks to all the Coachmen and their families that helped make this show a big success, we couldn't do it without you.  We raised close to $5000.00!!

We had 131 of the best cars in the St. Louis area registered.  Despite the heat, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.   The hall inside was air conditioned so everyone was able to cool down while checking out the silent auction items and the raffle items.

A big thank you to the VFW hall for providing great food and drink for everyone.

Car Parade at Friendship Village Retirement Home

Lou was contacted by Friendship Village Retirement Community in Sunset Hills to do a drive through parade instead of a display.  It was a beautiful day and a great turnout.  Coachmen that participated were Mike Mirkay, Ed Ruckenbrod, Bill Dedeke, Lou Puricelli, Stu Springer, Skip Berger, Herb and Pat Clark, Stu and Deb Langer, John and Lee Kakouris, and Bob and Kay Meckfessel.  We were also joined by members of the Fords Unlimited Club, the Slick Club, the Model A Club, the Corvette Club, and John Moss and several of his friends.


Everyone was overwhelmed by the great turnout of cars.  I don't know the exact number, but I believe it was over 30.
